    Stars Pick Their Top 5! This Week: The Surfbroads
      During the early '60s, surf music and beach-party films owned much of pop culture; it was a sort of rite of passage for kids looking for a less wholesome escape from a puritanical existence.

    After spending time abroad and behind the scene, Gabriel Sullivan steps back into the sun
      In the recent past, Tucson singer-songwriter Gabriel Sullivan has become somewhat of a ghost. No, maybe not a ghost, but let's call him a part-time ex-pat working behind the scenes. Maybe ghost was better.

    Tucson-raised Robby Lochner always managed to earn a living with his guitar. Then his discipline inspired new life in a suicidal nostalgia act.
      The Whisky a Go Go is a shell of its former self. What was once, alongside the neighboring Rainbow and Roxy, the manic epicenter of the musical social scene on the Sunset Strip, is now a pay-to-play haven operating on past glories and the merch sales associated with that.

    Mute Swan and the Curse of Local Hype
      Right now, anyone's guess is as good as anyone else's, but based on our town's track record, the chances aren't high that Mute Swan won't fade off into the not-so-terrible-at-all fate of settling in to the status of a very popular local band that had a promising moment with the release of its second EP back in 2016.

    Behind the alluring narrative of The Myrrors’ desert psych mythology abroad
      "It's like people's first response was 'It's these guys out in the desert making weird music.' People keep trying to call us shamans, and we just laugh," says frontman Nik Rayne.

  • Fashionable Anthem: We Were Promised Jetpacks

    Scotland’s We Were Promised Jetpacks have a penchant for crafting your new favorite song
      "We Were Promised Jetpacks" is one of those names that can lure people out just to see what a band sounds like. Listing their ilk might make for a fun drinking game, especially if you rule out ska bands. Everyone knows God Speed You! Black Emperor, e.g., but you might win with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

      Explaining her intentions to often-confused park rangers, Falconberry's tour came together both as an appropriate tribute to the centennial year of the National Park Service and a way to make the performances memorable for both her and audiences.

    Karima Walker infuses folk traditions with surrealism on Hands in Our Names
      "There were about two years where I was really dissatisfied with what I was doing. I kept writing songs like I had always been writing," she says. "I rejected that for a little while and was down on it. I feel more okay with that part of my creative process now...I didn't want to deny my history in a way."

      In the 1970s, when my brethren and I were longhaired stoners, we attended parties in remote desert spots around and just outside of Tucson, usually including a generator for lights and music, and kegs for refreshment, called "boonies."
