The Best Shows You Don’t Know: Apache Lake Music Festival, TUF Jazz Night At ASU, Shadowplay At Rips Ales And Cocktails

Oct. 16, 2013 — The Arizona music world has been shaken over the past two days as news spread of the passing of three Arizona-based musicians: Andrew Duncan Brown, and Amy and Derrick Ross who had been known as Whiskey Girl and Nowhere Man.

Amy Ross, 39, was known to be combating Lupus as well as in need of kidney dialysis. She died in the hospital awaiting surgery.  

Derrick Ross, 40, chose to take his own life following the passing of his wife, according to their next door neighbor, Doug Stanhope.

While the circumstances regarding 27-year-old Andrew Duncan Brown’s passing have not yet come to light.

The Arizona music community will together shed a tear for the loss of three such talented individuals. Events at the upcoming Apache Lake Music Festival will take place in remembrance of Andrew Duncan Brown, while memorial events for Whiskey Girl and Nowhere man have not been announced.

Friday, Oct.19/Oct. 20
As far as local music events go, Apache Lake Music Festival is just about as above ground as one can be. But since this is Phoenix and not even long-time residents notice the local music scene, ALMF definitely qualifies for the Underground Arts calendar.

Kicking off on Oct.18, the two day festival out near the Apache Lake Marina & Resort. will showcase the best of the Phoenix-based music scene all in the environment: a legitimate overnight music festival.

Of course everyone wants to see headliners Kongos, The Sugar Thieves, and Future Loves Past, but some other can’t miss performances include The Hourglass Cats, Sister Lip, Japhy’s Descent, and The Haymarket Squares amongst a stellar lineup of other great acts.

What really sets ALMF apart from other festivals is the opportunity to see, hang out with, and possibly camp with your favorite acts.

The show is all ages, and tickets are still available for $40. There is an onsite bar, but BYOB is also an option. Camping costs $5 per night per car and is first come first serve for spots.

Even if you can’t make it out there, check back to as we will be experimenting with a new live blog feature so our Music/Arts editor Jeff Moses can keep you up to date with photos, quotes, and videos.

Moses will be all around the festival from start to finish at both stages as well as inside the campgrounds mingling with the biggest acts Phoenix has to offer.

Friday, Oct.19
We found out that there is an organization known as The Underground Foundation in Tempe, therefore their event made our “Underground Arts” calendar. TUF Jazz Night will be taking place at 7:30 p.m. at a so far undisclosed location near ASU Tempe. The bands playing the event are Something Went Awry, The Brothers Cosmos, Groove Juice, and Bacchus. The show is all ages and BYOB. The show’s location has not been divulged yet to ensure that the event remains underground. But do not be mistaken this not just any old house party, the TUF crew wanted to ensure a certain vibe so the show has a dress code of No T-shirts, no flip flops, and to keep it “classy.” Like the event page says, “If you can get hip with the vibe, it’s going to be out of this world.”

Saturday, Oct. 20
Shadowplay, every third Thursday at Rips Ales and Cocktails, 3045 N. 16th Street, Phoenix. The monthly event is going to be a doozy. DJ Not-So-Noize FKR is going to be bringing the New Wave, Post Punk, 80’s underground and  Britpop to the little midtown dive, and when a good dance night gets going at Rips, a good night is had by all. Cover is $5 after 9 p.m. and the event is 21 and up.
