The Best Shows You Don’t Know: King Lear, Dax Riggs At The Western, Lost In Society At Lost Leaf, NERDZERKER Rage Quit Album Release, Bad Neighbors At Crescent


Staff Report
Modern Times Magazine

May 28, 2014 — Putting on a production of Shakespeare's King Lear is not exactly an artistic revelation, in fact more than six playhouses put it on in just the U.S. alone this year. However none of them did it quite like The Firehouse Gallery 1015 N. First St. will be doing it.

Under the direction of Lauren Karp, of First Friday Night Live fame, FFNL’s production team linked up with performers from Space 55 as well as other performance spaces to put a new twist on an old favorite.

The show will be working with an abbreviated script, and adding a few lines of their own. But what really makes it different is the time frame in which they are working. Karp and her crew will be putting the entire show together “from script to stage,” according to the press release, in one month. Every actor, every designer, every musician involved has had one month to prepare for their role.

There will be two showings of the play one at 9 p.m. on May 30 and again at 9 p.m. on May 31. The show is  all ages and tickets are $15.

Wednesday, May 28

It’s going to be a folky country sort of night at The Western 6830 E. 5th Ave., Scottsdale, when Dax Riggs, decker., and Daryl G. Scherrer roll through beginning at 7:30 p.m. The show is 21 and up and tickets are $15 but that’s a small price to pay to see two of Arizona’s best songwriters in Scherrer and decker. front man Brandon Decker, and Dax Riggs blows it all up as he is an admitted influence on both performers. This is one that will be great.

Lost In Society just shared the mainstage at Punk Rock Bowling with NOFX, The Descendants and many others, and now they are coming to Phoenix to share The Lost Leaf 914 N. Fifth Street with some of the Valleys best punks. Nomada, Bad Neighbors, and Black Thoughts will also be playing at the Leaf that evening, so it should be a good one. The show is 21 and up and begins at 8 p.m. What really makes this show amazing is that it is totally free, so don’t miss it.

Thursday, May 29

Originally from Georgia and currently based in New York City, Ron Pope is on his “Calling off the Dogs” tour and will make an appearance at the Hard Rock Cafe, 3 S. Second Street, Phoenix. He’s a big-time independent artist: he has sold over 1.5 million singles with many featured on NBC’s The Voice, CW’s Vampire Diaries and and multiple seasons of FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance, which sent two of his albums into the top 100 on iTunes simultaneously.

Friday, May 30

NERDZERKER is going to be releasing their debut album Rage Quit beginning at 8 p.m. at Scottsdale’s Rogue Bar 423 N. Scottsdale Rd. The show will no doubt be amazing with folk punker Andy Warpigs, weed rapper Hot Rock Supa Joint,  and alt rapper Orangabang all openning. But what really throws it over the edge is the closer Ichi Sound, no one closes down the night like this glow fi two piece. With NERDZERKER’s already fun tunes being matched up with this lineup, no way this party doesn’t go off. Cover is $5 and the show is 21 and up.

Sunday, June 1

It appears as though Crescent Ballroom 308 N. Second St.  has heard the grumblings from the locals and is allowing more locals than ever before to headline their beautiful venue. Next ones up Phoenix’s brand new Bad Neighbors. They have only been playing for about six months but they are already on just about every local music persons radar. Joining them will be Anthony Fama and the Redemption, Genre, and Matt Klausen. It’ll be both the Bad Neighbors and The Redemptions first show at Crescent, as well as Genre’s first outing with a drummer. The show is $5 and 21 and up.
