The Best Shows You Don’t Know: Check Out Some Brutal Moshes With Ire Adrift At The Sandlot, Or Something Less Harsh With A Phoenix Poetry Slam, Or A Little Folk With The Crux Playing At The Lost Leaf

By Staff Report
Modern Times Magazine

Sept. 12, 2013 — If you are looking for the most brutal mosh you can find this week definitely check out Ire Adrift at The Sandlot on Sept. 12 at 8 p.m.

As the facebook event page puts it “Ire Adrift is coming all the way from from the rain swelled North West to bring us the brutal crust doom!” And doom is exactly what the Washington based metal band is going to be serving up all night.

The tracks on their album “S/T” easily portray all of the North West based Crust Punks bands self described stylings including “crust, punk, doom, and metal.”

Ire Adrift will be playing with fellow doom crust punks, Prescott based Windmill of Corpses, and Sacaton based ska ska crust punks Requiem.

Requiem has been really developing their sound of the past year and are showing a real command of their instruments.

If doom metal or crust punk is your thing this show is a must! The show is all ages and cover is a nice donation for the touring acts.

Thursday, Sept. 12
Lawn Gnome Publishing, 905 N. Fifth St. will be hosting their weekly Poetry Slam competition which is also Phoenix’s only nationally recognized poetry slam. Team Lawn Gnome recently brought home seventh in the nation at the national team poetry slam. So there is no better time than now to head over to Phoenix’s front lawn and participate in the ever growing slam culture Phoenix has been building. The event starts at 8 p.m., it’s all ages and there is no cover, though donations are always appreciated.

Friday, Sept. 13
San Diego based country/folk/twang six piece The Crux is going to be coming through Phoenix on tour at 9 p.m. at The Lost Leaf 914 N. Roosevelt St. and they’re bringing their DIY sound with them. This band has got an interesting dynamic of instruments coming into shows with acoustic guitar, stand up bass, violin, mandolin, trombone, saxophone and a whole slew of other instruments. One of the best parts of their set is their drummer, who uses a variety of odds and ends to account for the drum rhythms of their music. Accompanying The Crux on the lineup will be local legend DJentrification. The show is 21 and up, with no cover, and one of the best beer selections in the city.

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.
