Feb. 18, 2015 — decker. will be playing their last show in the Valley of the Sun until summer time on Saturday, Feb. 21. The psychedelic folk outfit will be hitting the road for a steady touring schedule all throughout the east and west coast for the late winter and spring. But before they go they will be releasing their new record Patsy at downtown Phoenix’s Last Exit Live, 717 S. Central Ave.

The record is the culmination of six years of hard work and constant touring for frontman Brandon Decker and his ever changing crew of collaborators, and as he puts it they are “putting it all on the line with this one.” They have put in more money and effort than any previous record, and they are looking to get it all back with a wide release and heavy touring schedule.

Joining the half singer, half preacher will be a thoroughly fitting lineup of co-conspirators including Through & Through Gospel Review, The Haymarket Squares, and FIeld Tripp. THe show is 21 and up begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are $10.

Wednesday, Feb. 18

Basically if there is a show happening in metro Phoenix underneath a physical structure that is not a conventional roof it has a solid possibility of being the featured event in the Underground Arts Calendar. So, the upcoming Under The Bridge Folk Festival under the light rail overpass at Margaret T. Hance Park was a pretty obvious pick for this week’s feature.

My Pizza My World, a folk-punk outfit out of Texas featuring members of Days N Daze, will be headlining this most recent version of the UTBFF. Joining them will be locals Mr. Mudd and Mr. Gold, D.G. Scherrer The Voice Who Lost Its Man, Out Past Curfew, Hug Of War, Perfect Laughter, and of course the utterly useless and horrendously terrible Travis James & the Acrimonious Assembly of Arsonists. The show is all ages because it’s in a public park, and it’s free, although a donation for the touring act is strongly encouraged. The unplugged, unamplified, unregulated good times start at 6 p.m. on Wednesday Feb. 18. The music may bring up the energy at the UTBFF shows, but what makes it a party is the people so bring your friends and have a great time!

Lawn Gnome Publishing, 905 N. Fifth St., Phoenix, has been hosting their Phoenix Educational Programing Rally, or PEP: Rally for the past few months, and it’s a huge success. The PEP:Rally is mixing educational topics with entertaining performers to make for one of the most uniquely fun and insightful events that the Phoenix arts scene has to offer. Beginning at 8 p.m., PEP: Rally will be tackling one of their most serious topics yet when they take on Jail. So join the likes of Aaron Johnson, Ashley Naftule, Andy Warpigs, Matt Micheletti, Jessie Balli, Hattie Jean Hayes and more to discuss the big house inside the used bookstore in a little repurposed house. The event is all ages, and admission is $5.

Snake! Snake! Snakes! have been tirelessly working on their upcoming album for about the past two years and without their recordings to gently rock me to sleep all I have is the beautiful memories of their live shows to accompany me when I go to bed at night. They will be rocking a no doubt packed house at the Yucca Tap Room, 29 W. Southern Ave., Tempe, beginning at 9 p.m. with a lineup that includes Father’s Day, Pro Teens, and Paper Foxes. The show is free, and 21 and up.

Friday, Feb. 20

The self proclaimed “fakest rapper of all-time,” Hotrock Supajoint, is going to be showing just how fake he is and hosting a comedy/music show at Scottsdale Comedy Club, 6820 E.

The show is 21 and up and has no drink minimum.

Alwun House, 1204 E. Roosevelt St., is one of the legendary art spaces in downtown Phoenix’s arts district and when they do an event they really do it right. Beginning at 8 p.m. they will be hosting their annual Erotic Poetry & Music Festivus featuring more than 20 of Phoenix’s most exotic performers. The hosts will be Ernesto Moncada, Kevin Patterson, Cleopache, and Wisdom Soul and the event is 18 and up. Admission for the annual event will be $15.

The Stakes are a socially-conscious, full-band, hip-hop, ensemble that mixes jazz, funk, and soul together with their energy to create one of the freshest sounds in the Phoenix metro. They are going to be releasing their piece of recorded music entitled The Stakes Vol. 1, beginning at 8:30 p.m. at Last Exit Live, 717 S. Central Ave., Phoenix. Joining The Stakes will be DJ Extract, Dadadoh, Femme Fatale, among others. As well as host I-Dee. The show is 21 and up and tickets are $5.

Not all electronic music is club-banging EDM and the Provisions DJ collective does their best to highlight those other forms of electronic audial stimulation. Their monthly party at Sochu House, 2801 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, will be starting off at 9 p.m. with DJ’s Goonie, Melo, and Issa on the 1’s and 2’s, Mic Cause on the microphone, and live artist Angel Diaz will be creating for the viewing pleasure. The evening is 21 and up and free.

Monday, Feb. 23

Lawn Gnome Publishing is still working on perfecting their event schedule and to try and bolster their Monday night they are bringing back one of their most popular former events the Pink Slip Open Mic. You have been given the Pink Slip. It is your job to produce. Don't make us warn you again, Phoenix,” says the event page. To help bring the once glorious event back to its former glory coffee shop cowboy Andy Warpigs will be hosting its first go round in over a year. The show is all ages, has a $1 cover and starts at 8 p.m. But arrive early because the first 15 performers get priority!
