'Grounded in the past'? True, if the past means the 40 yr old dust on overpriced by 3 times instruments, abysmal customer service and a generally rundown -going out of business sale- atmosphere. They are voted 'best of' because they are somehow surviving? They sure as hell aren't a real music store and haven't been for the 20 years I have lived here.
Want the real deal? Try Rainbow or Instrumental. Both modern customer oriented business'
Why does the Loft seem to be hemorrhaging staff? How many new hires have they had in the last year or two and how many have stuck. Seems like some sort of mismanagement is going on.
Loft also features beer/wine/pizza options and added a new on-site theater last year--huzzah!
I have known Lucinda Holliday for almost 25 years congratulations you deserve it my beautiful friend.
OMG...I am so honored!!! I had no idea this was even happening.
XOXO Lucinda Holliday
I am a big fan of a terrific group out of Austin, TX------Hot Club of Cowtown. I THINK they have played Tucson in the past.
It's primarily a three piece "hot jazz and western swing" band: guitar, fiddle, bass-----all three unbelievably good.
I just saw their tour dates, and when I asked, via FB comment, if they would ever come to Tucson, they immediately replied they would love a gig there in January.
I figured you would be the best source to ask to spread this news and/or find them a venue.
Can you work on this? Or can you advise me what to do next? (I live primarily in New England where we discovered them at a festival. We come to Tucson for the winter.)
This is an amazing group!
This is a little ridiculous!
I believe that The Romero House Potters has the best classes for those who wish to work in clay. Wheel work, handbuilding and sculpture are taught there year round. The. Facility is wonderful and the ambiance is friendly. Lots of free time to continue after the class. Great place!
Its a nice post!!

Thanks for this information as i really appreciate and enjoy going to art galleries. I like the one in San Francisco so i decided to write about it here Art Gallery Opening – An Art Diary Description of Eventful Experiences
If you collected everything in the TMA and put it in a pile it wouldn't equal the Rothko in the UAMA (and there are probably a half a dozen works there that you could substitute for the Rothko).
And as it says,
"Directors Kristen Nelson and T.C. Tolbert are incredibly inclusive, supporting writers of all ages and backgrounds—and they're some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet!"
Met them. Love them.
They and their compatriots have created something of a magical, yet simple setting on Fourth Ave in this funky building. It's just about the writing, the writers and the readers, and the provision of a space to enjoy being any and all of those. Go and find out...

Thanks TW! nb Curator Tours are FREE for members! And free with regular admission for non-members, usually $8, but sometimes $5 and sometimes free depending on our installation schedule.
I want to include the Tucson Museum of Art in favourite museums list http://www.topworldimages.com/images_of_Mu…
There are hundreds of other Tucson murals online. A good place to start finding mural information is at http://TucsonMurals.org .
Great waste of money is what it is especially "Flying Books". Oh and what the hell does David Black's Sonora have to do with Sonora in the first place?! Chicano mural art and statues have much more meaning and craftsmanship than the crap these gringos produced. Take it down and stop wasting taxpayer money you idiots!
The Drawing Studio (TDS) is the best place to learn what you really need to pursue your own personal art interests. Fred Sanchez
