Local artist Mattea will be performing at the Black Renaissance: Juneteenth Festival After Party. Mattea shared with us what to expect from her performance, thoughts on Black Renaissance and details on her art.

What do you do?


I’m a singer-songwriter, musician and I paint on occasion.

How did you start playing trumpet? How long have you been playing?

I started getting lessons from my Dad when I was 7. Me and Vince (my trumpet) have been on and off and on since then.

How would you describe your poetry?

Oafish, huffy and bashful.

How would you describe your music?

Maybe like sloppy soul?

How did you get involved with Black Renaissance?

Seanloui came to one of my gigs and was gracious enough to connect me to it.

What does Black Renaissance mean to you?

An intentional space to celebrate black community, curated by the black community. It’s warm and wholesome and we need more of it, honestly.

What can we expect from your next performance at the final Black Renaissance event?

You can expect reverb. I, as always, expect people not to clap outta time, or even at all.

What do you want to give the audience with your performance? How do you want them to feel when they leave?

Optimally, we were able to be present to each other in a real kinda way. Optimally, we leave with a less colonized (or colonizer) state of mind. Optimally, you vibe with some groove and felt safe enough to be emotionally available.

What other projects are you currently working on?

Tryna' make more songs and art, that’s pretty much it.

Where can people stay updated on you?

The best way to follow what’s going on is follow my Instagram page (@shhmattea).

You can see Mattea doing what she does best at the Black Renaissance: Juneteenth Festival After Party. Saturday, June 15 at 9:30 p.m. at Wooden Tooth Records. 426 E 7th St. A $5 donation will be accepted at the door and given back to the artists.

All Bets Are On: Arizona Softball, the NBA Finals and the NBA Draft

Posted By on Fri, Jun 14, 2019 at 2:16 PM

Co-hosts Christopher Boan and Tyler Vondrak are back in the Tucson Weekly's audio studio after a week off, covering the NBA Finals, the NBA Draft and the Women's College World Series.

Both gents discuss the WCWS, which UCLA won over Oklahoma, touching on Arizona's brief run in the event.

The duo break down the Toronto Raptors' thrilling six-game victory in the finals over the Golden State Warriors, and what the injuries to Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant mean to the team's future.

The talk then turns to who Vondrak, as the resident Phoenix Suns fan, thinks the team should pick with the sixth pick in the NBA's draft on June 20.

Tune in each Friday for a new episode of the Weekly's only sports podcast.

If you feel like it’s been a while since you really had something to celebrate, it might help to remember that a full moon happens every month!

Why not celebrate it by ringing in the new moon (and waving goodbye to the sun) with an evening of ziplining? Outlaw Zipline is offering unlimited ziplining from 6 to 9 p.m. for $40.

Located at Old Tucson, they bill themselves as “the only shooting zipline anywhere,” because you get to shoot laser guns while you zipline. A childhood dream come true!

Monday, June 17, Outlaw Zipline, 201 Kinney Road. Reservations are required, and space is limited. (520) 668-9891.

Laughing Stock: There's a name for this ....

Posted By on Fri, Jun 14, 2019 at 9:40 AM

“I can’t believe we are still protesting this.”

Let’s just name the beast: Segregation. Whether you are seeing comedy once a year or every night, you will rarely see black people on Tucson comedy stages, let alone in comedy audiences.

Of course, we say reflexively, blacks are only 4.5 percent of Arizona’s population. (Thank you, World Population Review.) And we all know, from at least a century of research, minority populations participate most where they see people like themselves.

We shrug: Chicken, meet egg.

Aziza Drumgoole, AKA Aziza Jokes - AZIZA DRUMGOOLE FACEBOOK
  • Aziza Drumgoole Facebook
  • Aziza Drumgoole, AKA Aziza Jokes
All two of Tucson’s black male professionals, Monte Benjamin and Josiah Osego, are first call. On the distaff side, Camy Anderson and Stephanie Lyonga were snapped up for shows within weeks of turning up for an open mic. Anderson is a regular on Rebecca Tingley’s “Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby” project; Lyonga just wrapped up several months running her open mic.

“We are doing the best we can,” we tell ourselves. “Where are they?”

Meanwhile, Matt Kearney continues to produce a monthly show featuring a whole lineup of comedians of color, and he’s been doing it for most of 13 years. Over that time, he’s assembled a sizable mailing list that all but fills the 100-seat Grill at the Viscount Suite Hotel (4855 E. Broadway), with a majority black and Latino audience. His regular host is Rob Rodriguez, a former Phoenix rising star now touring out of L.A.

Kearney says he started his series, The LOL Comedy Jam, when a Tucson club explicitly told him he wasn’t welcome. A large man who looks like he could do some damage, Kearney is a laugher, not a fighter, but he is committed to justice and equality. He works for Living United for Change in Arizona, LUCHA, which helps working families organize around policies that affect them unfairly.

  • Mike Bonner, The LOL Comedy Jam Father's Day Weekend
The LOL Comedy Jam Father’s Day Weekend show at 8 p.m., Saturday, June 15, features Detroit’s Mike Bonner as headliner. Bonner has appeared on Comic View, Bad Boys of Comedy, Comedy Central and 1st Amendment. And he’s a YouTube hit. His video “Sex with a female body builder” has a quarter million views.

Also performing is Phoenix comedian Aziza Jokes, aka Aziazah Drumgoole, a survivor of parenting by two pastors. Comedians Fred Witte and Jeff Williams round out the bill, with music by DJ Dmenace. Tickets are $20 at the door, or $15 in advance at the Viscount Suite Hotel front desk or online through ticketleap.com.

Arizona Urban at The O

In its bid to transform the former Gus and Andy’s Steakhouse into Tucson’s next comedy night club, the O made The Third Annual Red & Black Comedy tour one of its first bookings. The night is subtitled Dress to Impress, a mandate sure to turn out lots of glistening skin and all the spangles in the closet.

According to The O, it will be a night of urban comedy with rap by Marana performing artist and rapper Philos King Denim. It’s hosted by Phoenix comic Karl Youngman, a frequent guest at Stand Up Live, Stir Crazy and other popular Phoenix comedy clubs. Aziza Drumgoole, AKA Aziza Jokes, also from Phoenix, will have a busy night, appearing at both The O and the Viscount shows.

Others Phoenicians featured include Mac Maine Tha Comedian, Phillip Jewell, Teddy Beard, Charlie Mac, Chris Mosley, Durrell Johnson and Lamar Mitchell Jr., AKA J.ust R.idiculous. Tickets are $10, only at the door. There is no cover or minimum. Check out our ticket giveaway on Instagram @tucsonweekly for a chance to win a free pair!

Laughing in the Dark

Jason Webb, Brew Ha Ha at Borderlands Brewery - ROOFTOPPRO.COM
  • rooftoppro.com
  • Jason Webb, Brew Ha Ha at Borderlands Brewery
Jason Webb looks like a movie archetype: The guy in a creaky grey wooden boat who, for a price, might guide you through the moss-covered, weeping tree branches of the Great Dismal Swamp in search of your missing lover’s body.

Call him a Southern Gothic comedian. Webb grew up the son of a preacher in the grim ambiance of Southern lore, the stuff of nightmares. Yet he can twist a dark image until it sweats sugar. The trick is in his energy mix. It’s made him a successful comedian, actor, director, podcaster, producer, storyteller and writer.

Webb co-created and hosts Follow That, a popular feature at LA’s Comedy Store. But he claims Nerdmelt Showroom as his home club. LA Weekly has named it the town’s best place to watch live comedy, but it’s location, tucked into the back room of a comic book store, is a bell jar for comedians like Webb who explore uncharted comedy waters.

Webb performs at 8 p.m. Monday, June 17, in the Brew Ha Ha series at Borderlands Brewery. Admission is $5 at the door, or in advance via SquareUp.com

Chubasco: A Monsoon Exhibition. One of the things that makes summers in Tucson not only bearable, but actually kind of wonderful, of course, are the roaring, raging, remarkable thunder and lightning storms we know as monsoons. In honor of this, the Raices Taller Gallery is having an exhibit all about the monsoon, or chubasco. What’s more universal than water, and what’s more symbolic than the way the sun peeks through the clouds after a storm? Gallery hours are 1 to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and by appointment.

Seventh Annual Dash for Dad 5K.

The Secret World of Sharks.
What do you and sharks have in common besides feeding on the blood of your enemies? Well, for one thing, sharks like music—some of them even have favorite bands. In most ways, though, sharks are just a lot cooler than us. They have three extra senses we don’t have. They’re born with full sets of teeth. They straight up just don’t have any bones. Join award-winning underwater photographer Samantha Schwann, who has photographed and dived with 21 species of shark. Without a cage. She’ll provide shark info and entertainment with her stories, photographs and dive footage. Heck yeah! 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 15. REI, 160 W. Wetmore Road. Free. Details here.

Father’s Day Screenings at The Loft Cinema. There are two polar-opposite movies showing at The Loft, so how you view your dad (or better yet, how he views you) will decide what movie you see. To Kill A Mockingbird. This movie, almost as iconic as the book it’s based on, features one of history’s greatest dads, Atticus Finch, played by Gregory Peck in an Oscar-winning performance. Finch stands for truth, and embodies hope. 2 to 4:20 p.m. Eraserhead. Perfectly capturing the nausea and dizziness of parenthood (as well as modern living), David Lynch’s surreal film debut just makes sense in black and white. 7:30 to 9:15 p.m. Sunday, June 16. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. $8. Details here.
