EVENT HORIZON (Wednesday, Oct 5)

Tome-ate-o, Tom-ato

Andrew Jackson Jihad • folk-punk • Diners • surf, indie rock • Kepi Ghoulie • punk folk

By Peter Karlsen
Once upon a time, back in 2004, in the distant land of Arizona, there was born a folk-punk band by the name of Andrew Jackson Jihad. It was a mouthful, so they decided to go by the acronym AJJ.

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Oct 9)

Hit 'em with the High and the Low

Palisades • electronicore • It Lives, It Breathes • post-hardcore • Darke Complex • metal

By Megan Reneau
There is a rhythmic connection between genres dubstep and metalcore. One band that's done phenomenal in this kind of mashup (referred to as electronicore) is Palisades originating from Iselin, N.J. Having been to their last show in town, I can guarantee that they put on an equally energetic and high quality show, which makes sense because after going on over 20 tours in the last four years, they are likely to have nearly perfected their performance technique. These guys just don't quit—or take a break for that matter—and I'm glad they haven't. In addition to the supporting bands It Lives, It Breaths and Darke Complex this is going to be a good fucking time. They'll be in town on Sunday, Oct. 9, at the gem of a locale, Blu Phoenix Venue,and tickets are only $8! Doors open at 6pm, and it's likely to be packed so get there on time (or early).
