Underground Arts Dec. 24 to Jan. 7: Andrew Jackson Jihad, Antichrist-Misfits Fest, Field Tripp E.P. Release, Circuit of Doom, Punky Reggae Party And Food Not Bombs Benefit, Lo Cash Ninjas, And More


By Jeff Moses
Modern Times Magazine

Dec. 24, 2014 — Without a doubt Andrew Jackson Jihad had the biggest year of any band from Phoenix. The local folk-punk legends signed with a major label, went on a major tour, and of course brought as much of Phoenix along with them as they could, including Diners, a band that will be opening for them when they come to Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. Second Ave., Phoenix, on Dec. 30.

Also on the bill will be Tempe darlings Playboy Manbaby who even without major label backing managed to take a nationwide tour. Playboy released two albums in 2014 and played some of Phoenix’s biggest shows. Combined with Diners, A.J.J. and the other opener, Sundressed, this is definitely the best pre-New Year’s Eve show in town.

Door’s open at 8 p.m. for this 16 and up event. Tickets are $14 in advance or $16 at the door.

Thursday, Dec. 25

What better day than Christmas to host Antichrist-Misfits Fest? There probably isn’t one which is why Jessie Williams, Bigger Than Mountains, Andy Warpigs, Travis James and the Acrimonious Assembly of Arsonists, Out Past Curfew, Daryl G. Scherer, and Miah Spring will be getting drunk and playing folk-punk on Jesus day. The show is all ages, $3 suggested donation for the touring acts and it kicks off at 6 p.m. It’s a house show so find some friends and find them!

Field Tripp front man Dan Tripp promised three E.P.’s in 2014 and on Christmas night he is going to deliver his new record Warren Drugs. Joining Tripp to celebrate Christmas will be The Bittersweet Way, Treasurefruit, and local comic Eli Kluger. The 21 and up show is going down at The Rogue Bar, 423 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, and kicks off at 9:30 p.m. Oh, and it’s completely free.

Friday, Dec. 26

Circuit of Doom will be returning to the Phoenix Metro and it’s coming back to the area’s newest hot spot venue Pho Cao, 710 E. Gilbert Drive, Tempe. Pho Cao has been hosting a lot of shows lately and really trying hard to lift its presence on the Phoenix scene. Kicking off at 8 p.m. Sasquanaut, The Rolling Blackouts, Deadfoxx, and The Woodworks. The show is free and all ages.

Saturday, Dec. 27

There is going to be a Punky Reggae Party at Tha Hive, beginning at 5 p.m., and all of the proceeds are going to benefit Food Not Bombs, an organization that spends Sunday’s feeding the homeless vegan meals. The show will feature music from Songs Lacking Talent, Uche and Jahlani Ujania, Freedom Young, DJ Scapegoat and many others. There is a $5 suggested donation, the show is all ages, so find a friend and find them!

Lo Cash Ninjas are coming through the Phoenix metro on their latest nationwide tour and they are stopping off at Time Out Lounge, 3129 S. Mill Ave., Tempe. Joining the Shiprock N.M. based ska punks will be locals Manoz Zuziaz, Contradiktion, Black Thoughts, and Downplay. The show is 21 and up and free. Doors open at 9 p.m.

Monday, Dec. 29

Jerusafunk and The Wavelengths share some members, so it makes good sense that they are going to go on tour together. They will be pre empting their tour with a kickoff show featuring Pro Teens — another band that they both share members with. These are three of the hottest bands in Phoenix right now, and it isn’t just reputation. These kids really know how to make fun music. The show is taking place at The Rhythm Room, 1019 E. Indian School Rd., Phoenix, and it’s all ages. Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door.
