Jan. 29, 2014 — TKLB’s F Bom Friday night residency has been going for the entire month of February, and for his fifth and final installment of the residence Kalen Lander has pulled together a spectacular show by inviting Playboy Manbaby, The Insects, and the Woodworks.

Less-than-serious rapper TKLB has been inviting some of Phoenix’s hottest bands to play his Friday residency including Sister Lip, Fairy Bones, Future Loves Past, The Sugar Thieves, and Japhy’s Descent, among others. But this Friday’s show really takes the cake, hell it takes the bakery.

Playboy Manbaby and The Insects are two of the most engaging musical acts in Phoenix. Though their genres are very different, the energy which the lead singers Robbie Feffer (Playboy Manbaby) and Brad B. (The Insects) bring to the stage is very similar.

Woodworks is also on the lineup, and they’ve been appearing quite a bit around the Phoenix metro as of late. Add it all together and it makes for an exciting and eclectic night of local music at Long Wongs Tempe, 1639 E. Apache Blvd.

With four acts all with their own fanbase and a free for all ages show, there should be a pretty impressive turnout on Jan. 31 at 9 p.m. For more information about the event visit

Thursday Jan. 30

The Stakes are a funky, full-band hip hop group based in Tempe. Their front man Zalamar Zeedub Davis is one of the most passionate hip hop artists in the Phoenix metro, and the live band act is truly a sight to behold. At 9 p.m. doors open for their Official Live E.P. recording at Last Exit Live 717 S. Central Ave., in Phoenix. There is a $5 cover for the event and all attendees must be 21 or older. Also playing the event will be Funkism and Hollow Point Vigils. For more information visit

The Haymarket Squares are back from their 10-day California tour and playing a welcome home show at The Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. Second Ave., in Phoenix along with The Limit Club, The Pubes, and Liam and The Ladies. Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show. Tickets are going for $6 in advance or $8 at the door, and the event is 21 and up. The four acts on the bill represent a wide variety of sounds from within the Phoenix local music scene and catching this one event really shows the range of sounds that Phoenix’s scene ecompasses.

Friday, Jan. 31

Tempe Art A Gogh Gogh at The Sail Inn, 26 S. Farmer Ave., really has it all when it comes to Valley-based music and arts.

Some of the highlights will be the music of the 14-piece Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, the live art of Dumper Foo, and the work of Tato Caraveo.
