Sept. 10, 2014 — The Limit Club are one of the most exciting bands in the Phoenix area right now. They are a super talented four-piece that plays fast paced rockabilly tunes and they dress the rockabilly part as well.

Frontman Nick Feratu is absolutely electric bringing one of the best voices in town to the table along with his signature 1950s look and his guitar skills. While drummer Juan Carlos and his stand up style of drum play where he lines up right up front on stage next to his bandmates really brings an energy that most other bands don’t bring. Add in Monte Oblivion on saxophone, guitar and vocals, and NickDave Meza on the bass and The Limit Club is bringing some otherworldly energy to the stage.

They are going to be releasing their first ever vinyl on Sept. 13 at Mesa’s Club Red, 1308 W. University Dr. The show begins at 8 p.m. and will see Manual Sex Drive opening for the Limit Club. Tickets for the show are $10 and the event is 21 and up.

Wednesday, Sept. 10

Abraskadabra will be coming into Phoenix from Brazil to play a show at 51 West, 51 W. Southern Ave., Tempe. For local support the organizers went with “a star studded cast of punx and miscreants from all over the Valley,” according to the event’s Facebook page. The local acts include Contradiktion, The Rebel Set, Torn At The Seam, and Jack The Cat. The show is all ages and has a $7 cover. Door’s open at 7 p.m.

Tempe’s Yucca Tap Room, 29 W. Southern Ave., is definitely one of the best bars in town to catch and rock and roll show. The drinks are cheap, the food is good, and there is almost always no cover. Beginning at 9 p.m. there is a really great rock show kicking off with local Rubber Brother Records bands Wolvves, B.O.T.S, and Pro Teens all supporting their touring labelmate Couches from San Francisco for their cassette release. The show is free and 21 and up. This definitely qualifies as an absolute CAN’T MISS for any fan of great rock music.

Thursday, Sept. 11

Something Villainous was so much more than the best-named band in town. They were a unique nerdcore hip-hop experience featuring two of the hottest musicians in town and one of the best promoters on the planet. Unfortunately, one of their members was not an Arizona resident and like many students in the area, spent the summer at home. But with the new semester starting, he is back and the only group I know of with a hip-hop song about Darth Vader is ready to rock once more. The venue has yet to announced, but the show will be all ages, and have a price tag of $2. Festivities begin at 8 p.m. so find a friend and find the show!

Friday, Sept. 12

The Firehouse Gallery, 1015 N. First St., will be opening their newest show, “Creatures” beginning at 6 p.m. The show is meant for each artist to showcase their favorite made up beings whether mythological or made up on the spot by them. Some of the featured artists include James B. Hunt aka NXOEED, Troy Farah, Janey Buttz, Hydroxia Gryfon, Ray Anderson and many many more. The opening is all ages and free.

Saturday, Sept. 13

Shhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! This one is a secret, but not that secret though. Kinda Not Really Secret Phoenix House Show featuring decker., Field Tripp, and Run On Sentence will be taking place at Dan Tripp’s house in midtown Phoenix. It should be a really fun folk show with a touch of rock and roll, and they are looking for $10 donations. The show is all ages and will kick-off at 8 p.m., but the door opens whenever Tripps decides to let you in.

Tuesday, Sept. 16

Clipping will be touring through the Grand Canyon state and they will be playing at downtown Phoenix's crown jewel of underground venues, The Trunk Space, 1506 N,W, Grand Ave. This is a rare occasion that Stateside Presents is promoting an event at Trunk Space and they are pulling out all the stops with one of the most eclectic, and eccentric supporting lineups possible. The opening acts will be the odd eclectic assortment of YUS, dad punk thrash band Fathers Day, and the undisputed kings of weird Treasure MammaL. Tickets for this bad boy are running $10 and the show is all ages.
