Dario’s Picks

Leo Kottke
@ The Musical Instrument Museum – February 9th / 10th

I grew up listening to Leo Kottke and have yet to see him perform live. I’m not super into virtuoso guitarists, but I make exceptions for the folk pickers like Fahey or Kottke. Should be a perfect show for the MIM.

 

Andy Shauf @ Crescent Ballroom – February 18th

Andy Shauf’s 2016 album the Party, has been a regular listen since its release. Along with it’s easy breezy 70s light rock vibe, the album explores the less heroic and awkward side of our relationships with those around us. Where most songwriters write about love and heartbreak, Shauf writes about those who struggle to even grasp those concepts, be it from their own awkward nature or just from being the outsider in any situation. It’s a refreshing perspective and I’ve waiting a long time to hear these songs come to life in person.

Brittany Howard
@ Van Buren – March 21st

If you’re a fan of Alabama Shakes, I’m sure you’re pumped up for this one. Personally, Howard really caught my attention on the new solo outing Jaime. It has all the energy of the Shakes but with some really daring choices that make the songs really come to life.

TY SEGALL
@ Crescent Ballroom -October 13th

Ty Segall is one of the most energetic and engaging performers I’ve seen. His stage presence has all the theatrics and unhinged creepiness of a young Ozzy Osbourne. The tunes have those infectious, classic hooks that you can play over and over and never get tired of. I get the feeling that being in this band has got to be so incredibly satisfying.

Andy Shauf
@ Crescent Ballroom – February 18th

Andy Shauf is seemingly a musical genius. He writes and arranges all the instruments on his records, and he also usually records and produces them as well. Maybe it’s more maniacal than genius! Either way, I’m anxious to see who gets to be in his live band and to hear his wonderous, folky pop performed live.

Lower Dens
@ Valley Bar – February 24th

Been a huge fan of Jana Hunter’s for as long as I can remember. This new album finds the band heading in a new direction and Valley Bar is the perfect space to see it live.

James Supercave @ Valley Bar – March 1st

These guys write some of the catchiest pop hooks ever! I haven’t heard anything they’ve been working on since “Better Strange” but I’m sure they are a blast live.

Iris’s Picks

Kat Edmonson
@ SMOCA – February 15th

I was introduced to Kat from a few very well chosen covers… The Cure and the Cardigans… Check check and check… curious as to her own work, but if her choice of covers is all I have to go by… sounds like it will be a good show. The first song I heard that was her own was Lucky which has a Hotel Cafe vibe… her latest has hear doing her originals that sound like old standards… which is very much her aesthetic.

Andy Shauf
@ Crescent Ballroom – February 18th

When I saw this, I nearly jumped out of my seat and immediately forwarded the upcoming record and Phoenix show to my friend that loves Andy’s work even more than I do! We even put on a pop up event with the cover of his last record as the aesthetic for what we wanted it to be as a guide. This is probably the upcoming show I am most excited about.

Joseph
@ Crescent Ballroom  – February 29th

Though they have a country-rock-pop vibe they did catch my ear on my yearly SXSW Research despite being a bit more mainstream in feel… Their tune “White Flag” has a sound similar to The Lumineers “Ho Hey” and a vocal output that is akin to Florence + The Machine in power.

Mannequin Pussy opening for Best Coast
@ Rebel Lounge – March 31st

I saw this sometimes soft but more often loud band open for Japanese Breakfast a few years back and despite their decibels heading off the charts with vocals that go from soft and dreamy to as far as snarls and screams, they still captivated me by their range and power.

Tops
@ Valley Bar – April 5th

This band must’ve been a Spotify Discover weekly discovery

Ratboys
@ Rebel Lounge – April 7th

“Elvis In The Freezer” was my introduction to Ratboys from SXSW music researching… I got to see them perform that song when they opened for Vundabar at Rebel Lounge. Hearing more of their songs live I kept having a thought that they reminded me of another band… and then I realized the band I

Polica
@ Crescent Ballroom – April 24th 

The first and last time I saw Polica was at the Crescent Ballroom… Phoenix has always loved her and I’m sure we’ll give her a warm welcome.

Real Estate
@ Crescent Ballroom – May 10th 

Sun tinged indie rock… that’s what Real Estate outputs… if that’s your vibe… head over to Crescent Ballroom!
