Oct. 22, 2014 — It is kind of hard to believe it has been a full year since the last time this event came around, but some how 365 days have managed to go by since the last Apache Lake Music Festival. So naturally everyone is all geared up to go camping by the water for the weekend.

This year’s lineup is very similar to last year’s, featuring returning acts like The Haymarket Squares, The Hourglass Cats, Banana Gun, Dry River Yacht Club, and Sara Robinson and the Midnight Special. But it is also bringing a few new additions like Playboy Manbaby, Captain Squeegee, and The Woodworks.

Music will be going from three stages day and night on Oct. 24 and Oct. 25 at the all ages event, and tickets are $40 for the weekend. Hotel rooms at Apache Lake Resort and Marina, 229.5 Mile Marker, Roosevelt Ariz., are already booked, but there will be plenty of camping available.

For those who can’t make it, Modern Times Magazine will be running a live blog all weekend long.

Friday, Oct. 24

Pinky Tuscadero’s White Knuckle Ass Fuck, Fat Grey Cat, Dirty Hairy, and Yoga Witch will be playing a show at The Rogue Bar, 423 Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale in memory of the late Mike Peters. The event kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and all of the proceeds from the $5 cover 21 and up show will go to Peter’s family. Though it is a somber event it is also a rare performance by PTWKAF and it’s pretty hard to keep it serious when the band on stage is as ridiculous as them. It’s going to be a rockin’ event for a completely worthy cause.

OK GO will be playing at the Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. Second St., Phoenix starting at 8:30 p.m. OK GO’s biggest hit came way back in the early 2000s with “Get Over It” but they continued to work throughout the decade creating very reputable and listenable music following the mega hit. They will have Phoenix’s own Jared Alan opening the evening at the 16 and up event. TIckets are $18 in advance or $20 at the door.

The Arizona Jazz Festival, which will be held at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa, 8000 S. Arizona Grand Parkway, Phoenix, will bring R&B, soul and contemporary jazz artists Oct. 24 to 26 to the desert. Organizers said last week that Heads of State scrapped their tour dates but vocal trio Boyz II Men, R&B crooner Jaheim, soul-jazz saxman Boney James and newly added soprano saxophonist Dee Lucas will be attending.

Saturday, Oct. 25

Glendale Gutters 4.0: A Crustwork Orange is an offbeat musical event taking place in downtown Phoenix at Civic Space Park, 424 N. Central Ave., also known as “the one with the floatin’ condom n’ shit.” It will be a short acoustic concert taking place directly before a planned Fuck The Police march at at the park. The lineup is not completely set yet, but as it stands, Gypsy G Mama, King Dumbass, and Buitre will perform together, followed by Songs Lacking Talent, and then Out Past Curfew. Attendees are encouraged to wear black and join the march. Music begins at 6 p.m.

Sunday, Oct. 26

The Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, will live broadcast London’s National Theatre’s Production of A Streetcar Named Desire at 2 p.m. This adaptation of the Tennessee Williams classic stars Gillian Anderson as Blanche DuBois, Ben Foster as Stanley and Vanessa Kirby as Stella. Tickets are $15 for museum members and $18 for non-members. For more information, visit

Monday, Oct. 27

The Phoenix metro has a long and storied punk scene full drug addicts, vagrants, miscreants, and monsters of all shapes and colors. Erratic Radio on 93.9 KWSS does their best to highlight a lot of that local punk scene while also showcasing the best stuff from around the country. Beginning at 9 p.m. they will be bringing in Timmy’s Orgasm from Michigan to play at the Time Out Lounge, 3129 S. Mill Ave., Tempe, along with locals Man Hands, Shovel, and DJ Dizzy. The show is 21 and up.

Tuesday, Oct. 28

Dadadoh is a rising star in Phoenix’s growing hip hop culture and at 7 p.m. he is going to unleash his new album, 30,000 FT AND RISING to the patrons of The Rogue Bar, 423 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, and the rest of humanity. Joining the Tempe-based alt rapper will be Orangubang, Curt Flow, and Zee Dub of The Stakes. The show is 21 and up and has a $5 cover.

Wednesday, Oct. 29

Wednesday’s are a rough night to find something good to do, but thankfully the Phoenix metro comes equipped with an awesome music and arts scene that makes it easy to find something do on any night of the week. Kicking off at 7:30 p.m., Guantanamo Baywatch from Portland, Ore., will be playing at Tempe’s Yucca Tap Room, 29 W. Southern Ave., along with Oakland Calif,’s Pookie & the Poodles, one of Phoenix’s top bands in the The Thin Bloods, as well as Shovel and Paper Foxes. This awesome event is 21 and up and free.
