Staff Report
Modern Times Magazine

June 11, 2014 — With Father’s day coming up this weekend Fathers Day on Fathers Day seems like the no brainer of the century for this weeks featured event. The absolutely absurd band will be at Tempe all ages venue 51 West, 51 West Southern Ave.

Fathers Day is a band of dads lead by the incomparable Douglas Patton, who sing songs about the trials and tribulations of a being a white middle class dad in contemporary America. Their songs like “My sons a gay,” and “I hate my kids,” are anthems that touch the souls of Fathers everyday.

Fathers Day will be joined on Fathers Day by Snake# Snake* Snakes?, Soam, No Dice, Soft Shoulder, and All Anal. With band names like that there is just no way this is not going to be great one going down on June 15 beginning at 8 p.m. with a $5 cover.

Friday, June 13

Downtown’s premier music venue, The Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. Second Ave., will be hosting another version of their Cover The Crescent this time featuring the music of Radiohead, Portishead, and Wilco. There is Danger will be performing Wilco’s Yankee Foxtrot Hotel album in its entirety, Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra will be performing Portishead’s album Dummy in its entirety, and members of The Minibosses, Sweetbleeders, ROAR, and Treasure Mammal will be performing Radiohead's OK Computer. The show is 21 and up, begins at 8 p.m. and has a $5 cover.

Saturday, June 14

Dicky Fest 2014 will be going down at the Boner Residence beginning at 4:30 p.m. There will be drunk people, craziness, and some of the best punk bands in Phoenix all to celebrate the life of Dicky Fjeld. The show is on a sliding donation scale, and no one will be turned away at the door for lack of funds. But please keep in mind all proceeds will go to help Mama Boner with some financial woes. The Band lineup includes, Ruca, Andy Warpigs, Quantum Colossos, Girl Bones, Mooseknuckle Sandwich, Button Struggler, The DeClaimed, Ray Reeves and the master of the Economy, The Pragmatics, French Girls, Phoenix Hooker Cops, and more. This is going to be a wild underground party you don’t want to miss. Keep up with the Facebook page for details.

Roosevelt St. will be hosting the Mystic Circus Presents: Ain’t Dead Yet beginning at 9 p.m. The show will feature performances by Gimp Da Pimp, Amanda Mitchell, Crystal Cruz, among many others and will be hosted by Lilly LaVamp. Tickets are $15 for the 21 and up event.

Sunday, June 15

Sunday is Fathers Day, but not everyone likes their dad. So if you don’t want to spend all day watching your sperm donor sit in front of the TV, chug beer, and wax poetic about how you wouldn’t exist without him go down to Margaret T. Hance Park and check out the Under The Bridge Folk Festival going on beneath the light rail over pass on Central Ave. The Leaky Faces will be coming in from New Mexico, along with Pasedena Crab Sandwich from Wyoming, Black Mountain Moonshine from Tolleson, Ariz., and locals Contradiktion, Authority Denied, and Songs Lacking Talent. The show is all ages and donations are strongly encouraged for the touring acts. Show kicks off at 6 p.m.

Saturday, June 21

Do you obey the beard? Do you want to? Well, your next chance might be Saturday, June 21 at Pub Rock, 8005 E. Roosevelt Street, Scottsdale, as Psychostick, Dog Fashion Disco, and The Bunny Bear. If you haven’t heard of Psychostick they are a unique comedy and musical act that has more fun than a kid with a hose. The band was actually started in Phoenix in 2000 and now calls other places home.  They call themselves humorcore and its hard to disagree. For more information, visit or
