Local alternative hang-outs/clubs. [09 Feb 2012|02:49am]

So I've moved to Chandler, AZ as of a year ago and I'm still clueless about the local alternative (and by that I'm referring to goth, emo, et cetera) scene here. What are the clubs that people in the alternative scene here frequent? What other local meet-up spots are there? I haven't seen many people who seem to be into the same type of things as me upon moving here so any information's really appreciated.

russian dark-rock band - para bellvm - new album "The City of Men" 2011 [01 Apr 2011|06:52am]

It so happened that we made a new album. We got an idea about it two years ago, right after release of "The Book of Kings", but due to different reasons we've created and completed it just now. "The City of Man" has in itself all the grief and joy, all the fears and worries of recent years. Everything that surrounded us for these three years is now under the cover.

lost music films 1965-87

Additional Info:
SONIC ORPHANS is a compilation reel of lost and found clips projected on 16mm; some silent, some that rock.
They are all rare and strange celluloid gems, many have been seen by almost no one and have never seen the light of youtube. Most of this footage is truly orphaned film--- abandoned, lost, found, and now presented raw without editing.

Friday January 7th

WHO: Jason Webley, Folk Musician, and indie sensation!
WHAT: A One Man Underground and Entertainer Extraordinaire!
WHERE: The Trunk Space, 1506 NW Grand Ave, 602-256-6006
WHEN: Friday January 7th, after First Friday!
WHY: This performer, this night, will renew your life for the year!

Additional Info:

"I don't care what kind of music you say you like, if you aren't thrilled to be alive after a Jason Webley show, you may have no heart to thrill." --JRC, Co-owner of The Trunk Space

He is touring in support of his new release: "Eleven Saints" about which Neil Gaiman (author of SANDMAN & Caroline) said "I cannot get these songs out of my head!"

Jason Webley has been called "A One Man Underground" and a maker of "Music that tears itself apart."
Jason Webley is, at his simplest, a accordion playing folk musician.
Leaving the description there however would do a great disservice to his awesome power as a showman.
Simply put, I don't think we've ever had an performer so capable of wowing an audience.

Mon Sept 20th: Italian Jazz-Experimental Acts! [19 Sep 2010|04:10pm]

Tomorrow Night!

This show is of interest to anyone who is a fan of jazz music, experimental & noise art, or even 'freak' acts like Zappa. Please consider coming, and if it looks interesting to you, please also pass it on to your friends and peers:

From Italy, TRIBRACO and NEO

I won't lie, this is very experimental jazz music, and won't be to everyone's taste.
But, it's also a chance to hear something rare and amazing the most fans of the genre won't have another chance at.

There are also 2 local bands, DESTOROYA and SPACE TOURISTS.

Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm.
The cost is $8 per person.

Thanks for your time, interest, and support.
