Well, this is fitting. The Blood Arm, from Los Angeles (aren’t they all?), is opening the Art Brut/Hold Steady soiree at Marquee Theatre in Tempe tonight (info at Stateside Presents), which we will be attending.
So you could say, yes, they are going to Arizona. Nice song. It also got me thinking of Arizona-related songs – mostly songs that reference my fine state or its cities in the titles.
A short list:
Wilco, Hotel Arizona.
Public Enemy, By the Time I Get to Arizona.
Pedro the Lion, Arizona.
Kings of Leon, Arizona.
Alejandro Escovedo, Arizona.
Jimmy Eat World, Goodbye Sky Harbor (Sky Harbor is Phoenix airport).
Jimmy Eat World, Anderson Mesa.
Calexico, Bisbee Blue.
Richard Buckner, Surprise AZ.
