Staff Report
Modern Times Magazine

June 4, 2014 — Lawn Gnome Publishing 905 N. Fifth St. will be hosting their first ever Under 21 Two-Day Music Festival on June 6 and June 7. The show will feature bands that all have members who are still below the drinking age, but that definitely does not mean they don’t know how to rock.

The first night, dubbed Rock N Roll High School will begin at 6:30 p.m. and feature performances by ADHD, Shrink, Uno Sideburn, and Captain Samurai. Captain Samurai is one of the best young bands on the Phoenix scene right now, and it’s due in large part to their front man Amador Diaz. They are definitely an act worth going out of your way for.

The second night, dubbed Smells Like Teen Spirit, will begin at 7 p.m. and will have Lunar Hood, Dinosaur Love, and Saba-Oats performing. Lunar Hood is a one man show responsible for some of the weirdest music coming out Phoenix right now.

Both days are all ages and free.

Wednesday, June 4

Art Night Out will be taking place beginning at 6 p.m. and running until 9 p.m. at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central Ave. The event is essentially a cocktail party that comes with free access to the museum, there will also be discounted tickets available for the Hollywood Costume Exhibit. There will be a cash bar, hors d'oeuvres as well as a DJ.

Friday, June 6

56 Street Records will be hosting a Music Video Show at The Lost Leaf, 914 N. Fifth St., Phoenix, beginning at 7:30 p.m. on First Friday. The show will feature music and videos by Nerdzerker, Bacchus and the Demon Sluts, Sunorus, Mother Of Sorrows, Supa Joint, and many other artists in the labels stable. The show will also be the world premier of Andy Warpigs new video which was directed by Troy Farah. The show is 21 and up and free.

The House Lounge, 607 W. Osborn, Phoenix, has been growing its reputation as a great place to see hip-hop shows, and they are only going to do more for themselves with this next show. Beginning at 9 p.m. Wake Self and DJ Young Native will be touring in from New Mexico with local support from M.C. Optimal, as well as Shining Soul with DJ Reflekshin. The show is 21 and up  and has a $3 cover.

They will be airing the film as well as offering special prices on white Russians. Japhy’s Descent, Coo Be Coo, Delta Nove, Sinister 7, Sister Lip, Banshee Bones, and Paige The Village Idiot will all be performing. The show is 21 and up and has a $5 cover.
