Jan. 14, 2015 — McDowell Mountain Music Festival is one of my favorite events and that they are making a concerted effort to engage more with the Phoenix local scene tickles me in ways I haven’t been tickled in quite some time. It’s just so great to see one of the biggest music festivals in the Phoenix metro not just use locals to sell a few hundred more tickets.

MMMF Beer Bash will be McDowell’s third satellite event featuring local talent. They’ve already done events at The Yard and Copper Blues with The Haymarket Squares, The Senators, The Hourglass Cats, and Black Bottom Lighters. Now for the most recent event 2015 local stage act Snake! Snake! Snakes! will team up with 2014 local stage act Field Tripp for a night of rock ‘n roll at The Rogue Bar, 423 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale.

The event is going down Jan. 17 at 7:30 p.m., it’s 21 and up, and like all of their previous warm up events, it is free.

Wednesday, Jan. 14

As of 5 p.m. Wednesday evening, Sunnyslope is becoming the new capitol of musc. The Onus Records Launch Party & Press Conference is happening at The Rhythm Room 1019 E. Indian School Rd. Phoenix and the whole shabang is free. Onus is going to be hosting a press conference at 7:30 sharp for No Volcano’s contract signing, and until then, the entertainment will be provided by Serene Dominic and the Gemseekers, Man From Bland, The Bittersweet Way, and Breakup Society. The show is 21 and up.

Thursday, Jan. 15

Free shows are the best shows and when it’s one of the best bands in town playing for free that makes it even more of a bonus. The Limit Club is a super exciting four piece psychobilly band and they will be joined by Moonlight Howlers and Buried in Red for Arizona Rockers Brawl at Blooze Bar, 12014 N. 32 Ave., Phoenix. The show is 21 and up and gets started at  8 p.m. The Limit Club is definitely one of the best bands in Phoenix and one with the potential to block up huge. So catch the free ones while you can.

Friday, Jan. 16

The Mesa Urban Garden, 212 E. First Ave., Mesa, will be hosting magical sounding event called Horticultured to celebrate their third year of existence. “Join us for an enchanted evening of visual art and live music. Group show featuring installations, collaborations, lights, colors, sounds, hidden treasures, moving shapes, things that fly and people who catch them as they land, all in a magical garden setting,” said the event page. It will be a group art show featuring work by Dumper Foo, Tato Caraveo, James B. Hunt, Michael 23, Margarete Beeson, Shona Crawford, Rhondi Reardon and many others. As well as a concert featuring Andy Warpigs, The Haymarket Squares, and KNS. The event is all ages, and free.

School is back in session so it’s time for The Underground Foundation to kick back into gear with house shows. TUFNAU Presents is Northern Arizona University’s chapter of TUF and they are bringing some of the most entertaining acts Phoenix has to offer up north for a welcome back show. Wolvves, Injury Reserve, and Glasspopcorn will be making the two hour drive to the snowy mountain town of Flagstaff to join Casner Cabin Draw for a wildly good time full of extremely talented bands. The show starts at 8 p.m., it’s all ages, and it’s house show, so find a friend and find them.

Saturday, Jan. 17

The Paper Knife has been all over Tempe with art shows and concerts, and now they are expanding into downtown Phoenix. They will be hosting their first show at Monorchid, 214 E. Roosevelt St., Phoenix, beginning at 6 p.m. It’s going to be a multimedia group art show featuring work by Zach Bootz, Matthew Marshall, Arianna Essian, Britney Hillsbery, and many other artists, and the opening will be played by “jazz savant” Sean Keslo. The show will be hanging until Feb. 1 the opening is all ages and free.

All Good Things Must End To Begin Again will be the closing reception for Deon Doughty’s AZ Rock Star Gold Series run at the Tempe History Museum, 809 E. Southern Ave., Tempe. Musicians like Kevin Lloyd of Banana Gun, Kevin Redlich and Becca McGown of Sweetgrass, and Japhy’s Descent will be providing the entertainment. At the same time, museum patrons get their last chance to check out Doughty’s golden portraits of some of Phoenix’s favorite musical figures. The event is all ages and free, the show begins at 6 p.m.

Rubber Brother Records is hosting a house show in Tempe and it will feature locals Treasure MammaL and Bacchus and the Demon Sluts as well as a touring act from called Baby Nelson and the Philistines coming from Mexico. There may not be a Tempe anymore once this show is over. The depraved madness that is going to go in within the walls of that home can never be undone. This will probably be one of the wildest shows in the history of the Phoenix metro. It’s all ages, has a $5 cover and starts at 7 p.m.
