Nov. 5, 2014 — The sweltering heat has thankfully ended, yet for most places outside of the Phoenix metro, this is still summer. But to feel a bit more of the fall nip, it is prime time to take a trip out of the city: To head somewhere a little more seasonal and agrarian.

and with harvest season happening it is a great time to

On Nov. 8, more than a dozen of Phoenix’s most fun bands and performers will be taking a trip to Chile Acres Farm, 3247 S. 343rd Ave., Tonopah, Ariz., for Farm Fest 2014. This show is a DIY festival, on a DIY organic farm, so the real star of the show will be the environment where it is taking place, but the entertainment is definitely nothing to scoff at.

Jerusafunk is the one most unique bands around and although “unique” is uniquely cliche in these unique modern times, the word still fits better than most others. They are an eight piece Klezmer Jazz, Gypsy Funk band that plays and looks like a cross between Dry River Yacht Club, and George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic. They will be headlining the farm-based shindig and playing along with groups like The Hill In Mind, Pro Teens, The Wavelengths, Dylan James Pratt, and Rashaquah.

Wolvves will also be on the Farm Fest lineup, and they are one of the best bands playing in the Phoenix metro. The four piece garage punks have been working a total new sound that is in stark contrast to their first tape Live Forever. Their evolving sound is more like the  style they broke out on tracks like “Static” from their second tape Go Demon or Go Home. Frontman Aydin Immortal is still one of the most exciting frontmen in town, and any event they appear is a can’t miss

Phoenix’s only ‘Circus Poet’ Joy Young will also be performing, including suspenders and a bow tie. Farm Fest Fans can also expect balloon animals, hilarious commentary, juggling, and probably more than a few solid points on LGBTQ struggles. There will also be art provided by S.C. Straight, The Paper Knife, The Olive Leaf Tea Company, and Derek Kaufman.

Presale tickets for this all ages event are going for $13 and tickets at the door will cost $15.

Wednesday, Nov. 5

If all of the Halloween fun and laughs got you in need of some not so bad harmonies and quality musicianship, the good news is The Bros. Landreth will be making an appearance at The Rhythm Room, 1019 E. Indian School Rd., Phoenix. They will hit the stage at 8 p.m. and tickets are $8 to $10. For more information, visit

The Lost Leaf, 914 N. Fifth St., Phoenix, is a great place to see a local band get down. But they also attract some pretty great touring acts to play their little art gallery / beer and wine bar. Starting at 9 p.m. Spacewaster from Seattle will be stopping through the leaf, and playing along with Zodiac Bash, Bad Neighbors, and Andy Warpigs. It’ an eclectic bunch for an eclectic bar, and as with every show at The Leaf, it is 21 and up and free.

Thursday, Nov. 6

Though downtown Phoenix’s The Rhythm Room, 1019 E. Indian School Rd., Phoenix, is generally known for being a blues bar, they are going to be hosting Pro Teens, The Wavelengths, and Red Tank! beginning at 7 p.m. Definitely don’t forget the dancing shoes for this rock ‘n’ roll show because all three of these bands bring the infectious grooves to all of their shows. Red Tank! brings more of a punk vibe, while The Wavelengths do a really cool surf lounge sort of thing, and the Pro Tees bring that garage rock / dream pop mix. There is just nothing bad about this as a way to spend a Thursday evening. The show is all ages and tickets are $5, there’s just no downside.

Punk Comedy Night At The Rogue Bar, 423 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, is Phoenix-based coffee shop cowboy Andy Warpigs’ brainchild. The evening will feature musical acts, comedy acts, musical comedy acts, and comedic musical acts. Its really covering those funny bases. Besides Warpigs, Allison Scuilla, Ichi Sound, Hot Rock Supa Joint, Mikey Bones, Eli Kluger, John Griggs, David Kays, and more will be performing at the 21 and up event. The show kicks off at 9 p.m. and is free Eli Kluger is one of the funniest stand ups in town and the rest of the acts are definitely top notch.

First Friday, Nov. 7

Fred Tiekin spent 20 years working in the music industry before transitioning into advertising and graphic design. After working in a top advertising firm, and running his own, Tiekin now paints full time between his studios in Venice, Calif. and Phoenix. The Shakin Things Up art show will feature Tiekin’s work, and will open at Treeo, 906 N. Sixth St., at 6 p.m. The show is free and all ages, and will only be open by appointment following the opening

Bragg’s Factory Diner is a very well liked restaurant in the Grand Avenue Arts District. They make some of the finest vegan cuisine in town, as well as support the arts in every way they are able to. Recently the diner has come on hard financial times and Erratic Radio has taken notice and put together a Benefit Concert with all proceeds going to the diner. The show is taking place at the Time Out Lounge, 3129 S. Mill Ave., Tempe. Entry to the 21 and up event costs $2 and the lineup features Big Vinny and the Cattle Thieves, The Labor Party, Scorpion Vs. Tarantula, Germ House from New Mexico, and a special guest that has yet to be announced. It should be a gas.

Saturday, Nov. 8

The Phoenix Annual Parade of The Arts is an all inclusive celebration of the fabulous arts scene that exists within the Phoenix metro. The centerpiece of the festival is the parade itself, but there will be associated events all over the Grand Avenue Arts District. The festival features free activities for people all ages. The event is also free and represents just about the closest way to experience everything the Phoenix art scene has to offer in one day.
