After spending a few years slyly infiltrating the children’s edutainment market with albums Here Come the ABCs, Here Come the 123s, and (my personal favorite) Here Comes Science, indie-geek-eclectic band of the century, They Might Be Giants, came to Tempe’s Marquee Theater in January with a 14+ show. Children’s hour was over. Not that anything on [...]
Sean Wheeler & Zander Schloss each have true punk cred, no matter which definition you use: Wheeler as frontman for SoCal punk revival band Throw Rag. Schloss has played bass and guitar in iconic punk acts like The Circle Jerks, The Weirdos, and Joe Strummer.
I was 18 when I first saw X. Exene Cervenka and John Doe were 22. She was a tiny, exotic beauty with a voice that would alternately rip your guts out and break your heart. He was hot punk on wheels. The music was raw, the lyrics often brutal. I was hooked.
After an almost three year hiatus pop-punk alt band, Yellowcard, returned to headline touring in 2011, behind the release of their latest album, When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes.
Interview with Jason Lancaster of Go Radio
Today I read a heartbreaking blog entry by multi-talented musician, Patrick Stump. For nine years, Stump served as Fall Out Boy’s lead vocalist, primary composer, and guitarist. Stump’s treatment by ‘fans’ during his solo run, is heart-rending and shockingly repulsive.
These days, Patrick Stump is a lean, mean soul machine. Touring with a crack team of musicians, Patrick’s amazing vocals rock the dance-your-ass-off soul/synth/r&b/urban-pop-punk brew.
What an amazing four days. There was so much to see, so much to do, so much to buy! So many people to talk to! So many, many, many panels to attend.
I present to you the phenomenal artwork from the place I’ve been know to call a “cultural wasteland”; each and every one of these creators puts a lie to those words.
As I wandered through the four days of PCC 2011, I had the opportunity to ask attendees and guests, alike, how they’d handle what we all know is the impending Zombie Apocalypse. Here is what they had to say to this pressing question:
If you woke up tomorrow and it was the zombie apocalypse, what would you do?
The gentlemen from Phoenix’s The Limit Club want you to swing through the apocalypse. If you happen to have their 2011 release This is Cutthroat Business on hand at the end of the world, you’ll probably want to follow their advice; the twelve tracks on the new album will have you swinging, shaking, rocking, rolling, and reeling into a psychobilly frenzy.
Big Names Turn Out to Celebrate Beloved Retailer’s Success & Growth Artists, writers, fans, and friends are expected to flock to Jesse James Comics on Saturday, August 27, to celebrate the store’s second anniversary and the expansion of the shop. Award winning writer, John Layman (Chew) will be on hand (from 12-6), as will many other comic [...]
I have a long list of things to write about; near the top of the list is a long overdue Local Lifesavers: Atomic Comics. Now it’s too late. I learned yesterday evening that Atomic Comics has shuttered all four locations. My first reaction was to yell, very loudly, WHAT THE FUCK?!? Next, I called my [...]
Chew is great stuff: an engaging police mystery that is by turns funny, bizarre, intriguing, funny, touching, thought-provoking, funny, sick (in the good and bad meanings of the word), and, if I didn’t already mention it, really, really hilarious.
“Phoenix Comicon supports Kids Need to Read like no other convention supports a charity,” says Denise Gary, Executive Director of KNTR. “None of them come close to doing for their sponsored charities what Phoenix Comicon does.”
Comics, collectibles, and ice cream; oh my!
Femme fatale punk rockers, Civet, steam up the desert at the Nile Underground.
Yes, Stan Lee was there. And big guns from Marvel and DC. Of course, Todd McFarlane is a local dude, but he gets enough press already. But aisle after aisle after aisle (this ended up being a VERY BIG CONVENTION) was filled with incredible artists, writers, publishers, and one very special retailer (we’re getting there [...]
