XOXO

Music events to check out this week

Feeling Groovy

Canadian singer, musician and songwriter Devin Townsend is arguably the living, breathing definition of a cult figure.

Know Your Product: Johnathan Rice

In the 14 years since releasing his debut studio album, Scottish-American songwriter Johnathan Rice has kept busy.

Know Your Product: Adam Townsend

From how upbeat Adam Townsend's music initially sounds, you might underestimate the emotional depths it can reach. Catch his show at Club Congress Friday, June 7.

Little Stories, Big Sounds

Fusing elements of soul, funk and pop, Tucson's recent favorite hard-to-classify band are putting the finishing touches on their debut album.

Know Your Product: Mystic Braves

Mystic Braves have moved away from summery, psychedelic garage rock into more fine-tuned psych pop, but they still leave room on their albums to occasionally blow out speakers and guitars in whirling kaleidoscopes.

Know Your Product: Black Mountain

Since forming over a decade ago, Canadian rockers Black Mountain have shifted genre multiple times, but always maintained a sense of adventure.

The Tucson Trilogy

Rhythm Methods: Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra

Nearly six decades later, the influence of Kuti can still be heard in the music of a number of different bands, including the Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra here in Arizona.

Know Your Product: The Wild Reeds

Uplifting as the morning sun, the music of The Wild Reeds fuses three-part harmonies, folk melodies and just a bit of that country twang.

Know Your Product: Cherry Glazerr

Fronted by Clementine Creevy, this L.A. indie rock band stands out from the rest by combining aggressive instrumentals, smooth vocals and an incredibly polished sound.

Code Breakers: XIXA

Over a blunge of Tecate, tequila and coffee—at once intoxicating and sobering much like The Code itself—XOXO met up with Brian Lopez and Gabe Sullivan

Know Your Product: Avey Tare

Easily outshining his previous solo efforts, Tare's newest album is a subtle combination of hypnotic folk, psychedelic soundscapes and pop hooks.

Two Irelands Unite: St. Patrick's Day

The two Irelands will merge in the concert: the band HighTime from Connemara in the Republic of Ireland will open the show.
