Sun Bones is incredible! Their live show is even more amazing then their album, and I can't stop listening to Love Letter. Amazing album from an amazing band!
Maiden? Stay tuned, AZ/DC...
Maiden? Stay tuned, AZ/DC.
I enjoy listening to "Hex Enducton Hours" but after reading this piece I would like to think that Mr. Pena might want to add a little more variety to his show, considering that he listens to all sorts of styles. I like the idea of hearing feedtime, Black Flag, and nomeansno followed up by the title track from Iron Maiden's "Powerslave" release. Please leave out anything with Justin Timberlake though. Bring it Julio!
I don't see Girl You Want, Freedom of Choice, Satisfaction, Peek-a-Boo or Turnaround mentioned. SpudBoy my ass.
A fantastic group from the 80"s Just what Tucson needs right now some fresh live talent. Please come and entertain us we need the excitment especially before these 100 degree days! So I will be at the Rialto come out and join us
The Healthy Arizonan
...I'm not sure why Tucson native and current Devo drummer Jeff Friedl rarely if ever gets mentioned in the local music media. He moved to California years ago and eventually worked/works with A Perfect Circle, Ashes Divide, The Beta Machine, Devo, Carina Round, Filter and Puscifer.
This is comical:"Musically, the Mission Creeps are one of the most perfectly named bands around, with thumping and thudding drums, thick and edgy bass lines and guitar leads that scream, wail and shudder. Guitarist-singer James Arrr and bassist Miss Frankie Stein prove again that they simply own their groovy, dark realm."
... In other words they are not your most favorite band. No positivity here. Very tactful way to say they suck ass. Do you owe them money? Come on just come out & say it. Grow some balls. What a wuss for a music critic.
Primus is one of the most original and talented hard rock bands that exist. Within their sound one can find a great mixture of funk, absurdity and a quirky sense of humour that musically & lyrically remind me a lot of the late & great musical genius Frank Zappa. It's a shame that Mr. Seigel doesn't much care for them; but I guess when a person can settle for the dreck an "artist" like Daniel Johnston performs, the music from Primus must come across as very complicated.
The 'CSI show with Chris O'Donnell' is actually 'NCIS Los Angeles' and has nothing to do with CSI other than sharing some letters.
I like the "Wayback Machine" reference, but as a bit of an aficionado of Peabody's Improbable History from the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, I'd like to point out the correct spelling is "WABAC", though it was pronounced as spelled in the article. I believe it was a play on UNIVAC and other hi-tech names from back in the day.
Sherman, set the WABAC machine to Rio de Janeiro, 1968.
Can't wait for this show!
Thanks for the post! would love to see them live, can't wait for their new album! check out their new song "I will steal you back", so good! http://smarturl.it/StealYouBack
Its an odd juxtaposition of images
The animation reminds me a lot of Metalocalypse. I wonder if the same people who created that are involved, and I'll keep wondering because I'm too lazy to investigate.
Actually, I should revise these thoughts, I've done some re-reading and I don't have this worked out to my satisfaction yet. My previous post was a bit too critical of this follow up article, I was triggered by seeing Levine's quote again and putting that on this author, this piece is less explosive than my first impression. My intuition is telling me there is an issue here, but I haven't successfully identified the root yet. Hmm...
Good post, David. I agree with you in principle: "fuck the writer" is a bad attitude and never constructive. I don't mean to condone that, but I try to address hater feelings because I believe in some cased (not all), it's the kind of thing people revert to when they have intense feelings they want to explain but can't put into words. So in frustration some just vent in a way that overshadows any possible value in their thoughts, and I try to be sympathetic sometimes when that happens. The tour is HUGE news for sure and I would expect the mag to cover it in a post, all I meant is: can an article be news if it's 1/3 reporting an announcement, 2/3 personal vendetta? There are about 20 people involved in the comment discussion he references. 20 who have any idea what the hell was discussed. The vast majority of prospective readers have no context whatsoever. So how does this work for a public audience? It doesnt. Personally, it's galling to see this extremely questionable characterization of the original comments re-published here because I know almost no one will seek out the comments to read and analyze for self. Accountability. The writer can cherry pick details, whatever he wants, knowing his statements are unlikely to be challenged. This new article/announcement becomes the received wisdom from that discussion? No one to challenge that, to speak up and prevent this from being reported/considered journalistic fact? Not on my watch. I just couldnt let this pass because basically, the article he wrote amounts to someone declaring "victory!" at a random moment in a war where all the soldiers were done fighting, then scampering off to.hide as fast as possible before anyone can react in any way, all the way feeling like a winner who got the last laugh. I'm being slightly dramatic here, but you can see what I'm trying to say. And the discussion of Josh' s original article went cold a long time ago, we said what we said and all moved on. The participants are long over it. Reopening those antagonisms--way too personal to be incorporated in something considered "news," in my opinion. I'm ecstatic to know they are touring! Best news in a while for me! But whatever this particular article may be about, it isn't really about the news-its about something else, but I can't finger what, precisely.
FWIW, tickets are also buy-one-get-one-free with a KFMA Day ticket stub.
Thanks, David! It's a bit odd that it say $6 advance on Rialto's event info page for the show, although it could just be me thinking it odd.
Hey Ldonyo -- I just called over to the Rialto Box Office, and apparently tickets are only being sold at the door tomorrow night, nothing in advance.
