Steve Roach will perform at Galactic Center on Friday and Saturday nights.
Friday, Feb 9: Their ’60s-influenced sound fuses elements of the archetype of pop music—the three-minute song—with expressionism that is unafraid to expand and distort to evoke an emotional response. Born of the earthen desert, La Cerca and the accordion, upright bass and violin propelled dark folk/Americana of Ex-Cowboy will be at Owls Club… She stirs together country, Latino, folk and pop into enticing agave nectar. She was invited to perform at the White House for President and Mrs. Clinton. The daughter of Mexican immigrants, folk singer Tish Hinojosa’s bilingual style of songcraft abolishes border walls. At Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum. With Teodoro Ramirez… Grammy nominated composer Steve Roach, a leading explorer in the genres of drone, space and New Age music, returns to Tucson for two nights of “ultra psychoactive ambient-electronic adventures in the deep end of the immersion pool.” At the Galactic Center… Guttural screams bellow out in hellish agony. A relentless pounding swells, feels like doom. Guitars slash and burn. Yes, heshers, it’s Metal Fest XII at The Rialto Theater with A Fall To Break, Sorrows Ruin, Evasion, Like a Villain, Minutes to Midnight and Sigils of Summoning… As tasteful strains of jazz waft into the late-night air when Naim Amor holds court at Maynard’s…

Saturday, Feb 10: Have you heard? Miss Olivia & the Interlopers and Juju Fontaine will rock downtown for 2nd Saturdays. On the Scott Street Stage… Dive headlong into Tucson’s dry riverbed of multiculturalism. Relish Native American art, basket weaving, food, fashion and lowrider car show at The Sixth Annual Pascua Yaqui Festival of the Arts. With The B.O.S. Gang, The Demons, The Hip Hop Hour (curated by Phat Records), Conjunto Bravo (intertribal cumbia and ranchera) and FLG. At Pueblo Park… “Cactus country soul, rhythm, jazz and blues” will be served up hot by Little House of Funk at Monterey Court… It’s anyone’s guess what the aftermath of this bacchanal may look like? In the spirit of post Lent debauchery Texas T Trash and Bordertown Devils celebrate Mardi Gras at Sky Bar…

Sunday, Feb 11: Author/journalist Caitlin Moran puts it best. "Cunt is a strong word. It's like I have a nuclear bomb in my underpants. In a culture where nearly everything female is seen as squeam-inducing or weak… I love that 'cunt' stands as the supreme, unvanquishable word." C*nts Being C*nts Talking About C*nts is a night of stand-up comedy and poetry that promises to “leave you entertained and moist with delight.” With music by Sugar Stains. At The Flycatcher…
