Play me a sad song
Great art comes under duress, que no? If that meirda’s true, then August March imploring Alibi readers to go out and see some shows is a frikkin’ masterpiece!
New releases by the mysterious Jefe Mac, the triumphal SHREWD and the gritty Heaven for Less.
The Return of Gatas y Vatas
DIY experimental music fest happens today, Friday and Saturday
There are some live music experiences that are so out-of-the-ordinary, so electric with energy, so unexpected that as ithey happen, you realize how lucky you are to be there. No grainy live video feed can capture these transformative musical moments; as you explain it to others clumsy words just can’t tell the depth of the experience.
Red Light Cameras • indie rock • Jared and the Mill • The Timewreckers • cosmic country
The favorite, most popular pop band in Dirt City is named after a thing that no longer exists here. No, dudes, it's not the dinosaurs or the inherently racist educational institutions of el duque that one thinks of in such situations; rather it's the Red Light Cameras. ¿Los Recuerdas? Consequently, besides a lot of happy motorists, there's the story of a band here too. That resulting rocanrol ensemble, The Red Light Cameras, continue to draw huge audiences all over the state and now you can count yourself among the lucky humans who've seen them perform when they appear at Sister on Wednesday, March 7 at 8pm. Phoenix indie unit Jared & The Mill are also on the bill. For realz rockers—and perhaps heirs to RLC's guilded throne—The Timewreckers, open. Showtime is 8pm with a $5 cover and 21+.
