The Best Shows You Don’t Know: Treasure Mammal At Trunk Space, Last Phoenix Poetry Slam Of The Season, J.D. Wilkes And The Dirt Daubers, FIrestage Long Crazy Winter, Cultiv8n Culture Open Mic, PPC Presents Secret Love

Modern Times Magazine

Jan. 16, 2014 — For anyone who has never seen Treasure Mammal take Thursday Jan. 16 as a cue to get down to the Trunk Space 1506 N.W. Grand Ave. Phoenix and see them along with Snake! Snake! Snakes!, Austin Texas based Daniel Doyle, and Bacchus and the Demon Sluts.

Treasure Mammal is an out of control dance music group that is totally intent on putting on the wildest and most fun show possible. Their sets always include a few suprises, tons of dancing, and riotous debauchery.

With Treasure Mammal and Bacchus on the line up the chances of something outlandish happening are pretty high considering both bands boast dynamic front men along with equally talented backing. But add in the packed confines of the venue, and the general disregard for social norms that fans of both seems have, and the entire show promises to entertaining, exhilarating, and fun from start to finish.

Snake! Snake! Snake! is another fun act, that is getting their name out in both the Phoenix underground scene playing shows like PHY FMLY Fest and getting out there with the more serious indie crowd by playing at the big shows like Dia De Los Crescent.

Add in a touring act who is unafraid to step into the home turf of some of Phoenix’s most erratic bands and there is nothing stoping this show from being the best show in Phoenix this week.

Doors open at 7:30 P.M. and the show begins at 8 P.M. tickets are $6 and the event is all ages.

Thursday, Jan. 16
The Phoenix poetry scene has been growing by leaps and bounds pretty much since Aaron Johnson decided to open Lawn Gnome Publishing 905 N. Fifth St.. Not to say Johnson has done all the work, but his store hosts the only nationally sanctioned poetry slam in Phoenix, and has generally been the hub of the Phoenix poetry scene for two years. In October the Individual World Poetry Slam will be coming to Phoenix thanks to Johnson’s efforts, but while that event is months away the Last Phoenix Poetry Slam of the Season is happening this week. The event is all ages, and has $5 cover but no one will be turned away. The slam begins at 8 P.M.

Thursday, Jan. 16
J.D. Wilkes of The Legendary Shack Shakers will be coming to Last Exit Live 717 S. Central Ave. Phoenix with his project The Dirt Daubers. To play along with The Haymarket Squares, and Mr. Mudd and Mr. Gold. Besides just having a great lineup the show will also be the Haymarket Squares last show in Phoenix before embarking on their Winter In California tour. Doors open at 7:30 show begins at 8:30 tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door. The show is 21 and up.

Friday, Jan. 17
For five years straight third Friday has been the night of the Firehouse Galleries 1015 N. First St. flagship event Firestage. With host Ernesto ‘Ernasty” Moncoda and an ever changing lineup of comedians, singers, poets, dancers, fire spinners, and every other sort of performer Firestage is always a worthwhile venture on a Friday night. The event begins at 8 P.M. has a $5 suggested donation, and is all ages. Walk up participation is possible, but contact Ernesto before the event to ensure participation

Monday, Jan. 20
For Martin Luther King Jr. Day the Cultiv8n Culture open mic that, has been running at the Fair Trade Cafe 1020 N. First Avenue Phoenix for nearly five months will be hosting a special Freedom Edition.  The weekly open mic that has no charge, is open to all ages, and kicks off at 7 P.M. will be welcoming a guest host in Wisdomsoul as well a special Detroit based feature Dagod Knowledgeborntruthallah, to go along with their always eclectic mix of performers.

Tuesday, Jan 21
Pages Per Content is a quality culture magazine and at 7 P.M. they will be releasing their eighteenth issue, at A Day Before Plastics Long Wongs 1639 E. Apache BLVD Tempe residency. Also for the show they will be welcoming Secret Lover out of Worcester, Mass as well as locals Lee P. and Korbe. There is no cover, the show is all ages, and promises to be a lot of fun.
