Noise Annoys

Welcome to the first edition of Noise Annoys, where you'll find the best, worst and hopefully most interesting and noteworthy happenings and characters in Tucson.

B-Sides: DJQ

If you didn’t catch local poet and beat maker Enrique García Naranjo’s piece in the L.A. Times in May, you’ll want to check out “What Is Mexcellent?” right now.

B-Sides: Los Master Plus

There's absolutely no way you will possibly be seen standing still at Rialto Theatre this Friday.

B-Sides: Litter Brain

The band, which features members of Arroyo Deathmatch, carries that sense of humor throughout the album with tunes like "You Can Get Mimosas Now," "Toilet Phone" and "Loan Groan."

B-Sides: TTNG

You could go the obvious route when releasing a summer album and try to play up to people wanting to party, chill at the beach or whatever else people do during precious time off when the sun is out in full force.

B-Sides: Jarabe Mexicano

Jarabe Mexicano, a five-piece group from San Diego and Tijuana, offers up just what their name promises, metaphorically that is.

B-Sides: Happy Diving

Screeching, fuzzy, distorted and moody as hell, Oakland's Happy Diving offers a whole lot of attitude on their newest LP Electric Soul Unity.

B-Sides: ON AN ON

ON AN ON fans will want to head to Club Congress (311 E. Congress St.) on Tuesday.

B-Sides: Yoni & Geti

If you haven't been following Chicago alternative hip-hop artist Serengeti through his many collaborations and side projects, it's time to pay attention.

B-Sides: Good Is Good

Back again for another night of live local music in the Tucson Museum of Contemporary Art's Great Hall, you'll want to stop in for the Good is Good showcase at the museum.

B-Sides: False North

Taking inspiration from now-nostalgic bands like The Strokes and the Arctic Monkeys, Flagstaff's False North offer up tunes that feel familiar on their debut release.

B-Sides: Methra

It's been just about two years since Tucson's seen new music from the sludgey hands of doom duo Methra.

B-Sides: The Psychedelic Furs

Legendary English rock band the Psychedelic Furs are playing the Rialto Theatre.

B-Sides: Patsy's Rats

Although Patsy's Rats might be a Portland-based act, it's undeniable that the band has some real Tucson ties.

B-Sides: DJ Bijou

Blending familiar rhymes from hip-hop heavyweights like Ice Cube and NWA as well as newer rappers like Gucci Mane, Bijou's trance style offers something you probably already know and love, but morphed into another completely different thing that demands you get up and move.
