Evolving away from self-indulgent metallic riffing—finding inspiration in hip hop and R&B grooves—interweaving guitar lines towards a more focused melodic sound, Polyphia bring the Look But Don’t Touch Tour to 191 Toole. Details here.

With Safford, AZ’s The Cole Trains, who celebrate the release of the Lucky Stars. An album full of Americana, country and a lil’ bit of rock ‘n’ roll. Details here.
