The Best Shows You Don’t Know: C.A.S.S Benefit At {9} Gallery, One More Time At Crescent Ballroom, Drunk And Horny Orchestra At Trunk Space, A Very Reggae Christmas


By Staff Report
Modern Times Magazine

Dec. 11, 2013 — With Thanksgiving in the rearview and Christmas right around the corner now is the time to pony up and start giving, and the benefit show for the Central Arizona Shelter Services is a good place to start.

The show is part of the “I Have A Name Project,” art show which is using art and photography to put name to the thousands of homeless faces here in the Valley of The Sun.

Also to go along with the art showing will be acoustic performances by Phoenix’s original protest band The Haymarket Squares who will be playing along with harmonica player “Dilly,” as well as a Squares backed performance by D.G. Sherrer.

The show is Dec. 14 and doors open at 8 p.m. it is all ages and tickets are $11.34 including fees in advance. The show is taking place at {9} Gallery 1219 Grand Ave. in Phoenix.

Friday, Dec. 13
When a tribute band is so good that they get to tour nationally and internationally, get signed to Live Nation, and get the approval of those they cover it is definitely time to take notice. One More Time a tribute band to the funkiest robots on Earth, Daft Punk, will be bringing their out of this world revue to downtown Phoenix’s Crescent Ballroom 308 N. Second Ave. on Dec. 13. Last time One More Time played the Crescent, the ballroom pranked their followers by posting pics of OMT to their Facebook and claimed it was the real McCoy, and the pics looked so good it could have been. This time around everyone is expecting more of the same. One More Time will have O/W/L/S out of Tucson and local KRIS THE FIST opening for them. The show kick off at 8:30 p.m., tickets are $15 and the event is 21 and older.

Saturday, Dec. 14
The Trunk Space, 1506 NW Grand Ave Phoenix, is one of those funky weird music venues/cafe’s/art spaces that makes the eclectic and eccentric Phoenix music scene what it is. The venue welcomes all sorts of strange and out of the ordinary shows like their summertime tribute to Andy Kaufman, or their Nov. 2 secret Andrew Jackson Jihad show featuring Supa Joint. They’ve even welcomed artists who are now big time national touring acts like Matt and Kim. But for this show they will be welcoming the always strange Drunk and Horny to take the stage along with the backing of their Drunk and Horny Orchestra. As if Ryan Avery and Andrew Jemsek were not weird enough they went out and got an even weirder backing band to join their ranks including Austin Rickert of Naked Pizza and Jemsek’s brother Tristan of Dogbreath among others. The show is all ages begins at 7:30 p.m. and has a $5 cover. Opening the night will be a two-hour presentation called “Christmas Torture,” by The Lost Media Archive out of Provo, Utah.

Saturday, Dec. 14
A Very Reggae Christmas will be happening at Old Town Scottsdale’s Rockbar, 4245 N. Craftsmans Court, kicking off at 8 p.m. The show will have performances by Silverling, The Hourglass Cats, Pride Through Strife, and Oops and Mike EZ. Silverlining was conceived in the year 2013 following the breakup of Glendale-based desert reggae outfit Valley Love. The band features members of Valley Love, The Hourglass Cats, and other musicians that blend together to make for a funky reggae groove. THC and Pride Through Strife are both stalwart desert reggae acts doing their best breakthrough into the mainstream, and Oops and Mike EZ are both former members of Valley Love experimenting with a hip hop project. But if jamming out to some of the Valley’s hottest reggae bands is not enough, the purveyors of the show will also be offering a pre game party bus option that will be leaving from Chandler's Sandbar at 7:30 p.m. The event is 21 and older and tickets for the just the show are $10 at the door $7 in advance and $20 for the entire party bus experience.

Chapter 18: “This Could be the Last Time”

The galaxy-class astral catwomen paint by numbers way out in the Fornax Void, and grease some filthy-dirty alien werewolves in the process.

Beyond The Hill

An exceedingly intelligent homeless amnesiac finds a dear friend on the streets who is not really from the neighborhood, but beyond the hill.
