The Best Shows You Don’t Know: Califone/Destruction Unit/Wooden Indian Presents, Free Association Poetry Series Featuring Joy Young, Halocene CD Release Party, Best Of Birthday Suit Burlesque, Firestage Persephone’s Fest


Staff Report
Modern Times Magazine

March 19, 2014 — Wooden Indian is so cool in the eyes of the downtown Phoenix scene that when someone spray painted their name on to a mural promoting Viva Phoenix Fest mostly everyone was fine with it. Their strange, jammy sound encompases a wide variety of influences and it all comes out as a confusingly, blissful-sonic experience.

On March 21 at 8 p.m. the curtain goes up on the Indian’s latest project, an all night festival featuring Califone, Destruction Unit, Cherie Cherie, Los Puchos, and North Brother Island at The Icehouse, 429 W. Jackson Street. Tickets are selling for $10 and a sellout is expected.  

The cover is a small price to pay for the level of talent coming in for the show, and when mixed with Wooden Indian’s penchant for making their shows one of a kind experiences and there is just nothing bad about this one.

Wednesday, March 19

Joy Young will be the featured performer at Glendale Community College, 6000 W. Olive Ave., Glendale, Free Association Poetry Series.

There will also be an open mic portion of the show. The event is free and all ages. It begins at 7 p.m. and is hosted by Shawnte Orion.
