It’s not going out on a limb to say this week of shows in the Valley might go down as one of the busiest/best. Sadly, work won’t allow me to attend just about all of them (but we did hit the San Diego Street Scene this past weekend, and that was a blast).
Check out the schedule of shows this week (already missed Beck/MGMT on Monday night):
My Morning Jacket at Marquee Theatre.
The New Year at Modified.
Hot Chip/Vampire Weekend at Rialto Theatre in Tucson.
Dear and the Headlights CD-release party at the Clubhouse.
Edgefest 2008 with Airborne Toxic Event, Atmosphere, the Kooks and more at Schnepf Farms.
Ra Ra Riot with Walter Meego and the Morning Benders at Modified.
You can check out a couple stories I wrote that were published last week at The Arizona Republic’s Web site. The first was on famous pizza chef Chris Bianco designing a T-shirt logo for local band Kinch. The other was a preview of Saturday’s Go Vote show with Calexico and Jim Adkins (more on that soon).
