Jan. 21, 2015 — Though Lawn Gnome Publishing, 905 N. Fifth St., is no longer is the host of The Phoenix Poetry Slam, the quaint used bookstore still maintains a focus on the spoken word. Friday Jan. 23, [Nudek] Presents will be bringing poet, blogger, and YouTuber Steve Roggenbuck to Phoenix’s favorite bookstore for a one night engagement.

Joining Roggenbuck will be local poets Jos Charles, Beth May, Elijah Pearson, Khayree Billingslea. As well as local musicians Injury Reserve and Longbird. The spoken word will definitely be well represented at this event by a diverse offering of word smiths. The event begins at 7 p.m. sharp, is all ages, and has a $10 cover.

Thursday, Jan. 22

Erratic Radio is one of the best radio shows in town, and hands down the best punk radio show. To give back to their valued listeners Erratic Radio Presents likes to throw a quality show every once in awhile. For this particular offering they are bringing in two musical legends  Eddy Detroit, and Elmo Kirkwood of The Meat Puppets. Doors open at 8 p.m. for this all ages, free show at Time Out Lounge, 3129 S. Mill Ave., Tempe.

Friday, Jan. 23

Chopper John’s, 2547 E. Indian School Rd., is one of the last really great dive bars in the Phoenix metro — they’ve got the right look, the right prices, the right crowd — and they bring in the right shows. Crosby Tyler - The One Man Tub-Thumpin’ Band shall be making a stop there for a show beginning at 9 p.m. and joining him will be Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers. The show is free, 21 and up and should be a hell of a lot of fun.

ANY show with Serene Dominic and the Gemseekers on it is more than worth $5 at the door. But one at a completely underused venue like Rips Bar, 3045 N. 16 St., Phoenix, it’s  almost a gift. Rips is always known for its amazing dance nights, but the slanty-roofed building is generally just a cool place to be.  Joining Serene will the Saints of Van Buren and Los Bandits. The show is 21 and up and starts at  9 p.m.

Saturday, Jan. 24

Eli Kluger is a really interesting guy. He is one of the funniest stand up comedians in town, a YouTube celebrity, and an ebay entrepreneur. He is also a local film maker. Lawn Gnome Publishing 905 N. 5 St. is going to be hosting a screening of Klugers documentary Phoenix Rising beginning at 8 p.m. The film is Kluger paying tribute to the vibrant Phoenix music scene, and paying particularly close attention to Phoenix favorites Treasure MammaL and Andrew Jackson Jihad. The screening is all ages and admission is $5 in advance or $7 at the door.

O.G. members of Suicidal Tendencies, Louiche Mayorga and RJ Herrera didn’t get all the punk out of them when they left Suicidal Tendencies back in the day, so they came back together and hit the road as Luicidal. They are going to be coming through Tempe to play at the Yucca Tap Room, 29 W. Southern Ave., Tempe. Joining the Venice beach O.G.’s will be Flying Donkey Punch and The Tribulators from Tucson, and locals Heavy Breather and Axe Wound. The show is $3 for people under the age of 21 and free for people who are drinking age. The show starts at 8 p.m.

Sunday, Jan. 25

The residents of 501 N. 14 St. have turned their home into an ever-changing piece of art by applying their own upgrades. Such as their beautiful graffiti on their southern wall, and their metal heArtship sculptures. Starting at 11 a.m., they will be inviting all interested parties to come over for tea and their heARTship Permaculture Workshop. The event is free, all ages, and all are encouraged to attend.

There is going to be a Free Show at The Lost Leaf, 914 N. Fifth St., Phoenix, which is always free, but they don’t always have locals Mouse Powell, Playboy Manbaby, DJ Ruebot, and Rubedo from Denver. This is like the equivalent of Vanilla Ice and Nickelback playing the Marquee: it’s a can’t miss. Music starts at 8 p.m. and the show is 21 and up.
