Adele, we love you, but if we have to hear any one of your top hits on the radio, in the grocery store or blaring from someone’s iPod at the gym on one more time, the rain won’t be the only thing mysteriously catching on fire. With that said, wouldn’t it be nice to hear some tunes free of tear-inducing-post-break-up angst? Well, that’s going to be hard to come by in the music biz, but here is something just recent enough to be considered “new” from the band Cloud Nothings. Attack on Memory (which you should really listen to in its entirety) is the latest effort from the indie foursome and you can see them in the flesh at Crescent Ballroom February 27th. Here’s the (rather disturbing) video for “No Future/No Past”. No arson necessary.
Forming in 1978, punk rock legens Social Distortion will playing Tempe’s Marquee Theatre tonight at 6:30 p.m. As we reported earlier this week, the Blake Eyed Peas’ own Will.i.am will be performing at the Phoenix Open’s Birds Nest tonight as well. Or if you feel like having a calm Friday night, head over to ASU’s Gammage Theatre in Tempe to check out Menahem Pressler, German-American pianist who will be playing with the ASU Chamber Orchestra at 7:00 p.m.
Release your inner Irish this Saturday with Celtic Nights: Journey of Hope, playing at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts at 8:00 p.m. Local singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews will be performing at the Crescent Ballroom, for more info click here. Don’t forget to check out the closing band of the Phoenix Open, 80s cover band Flashback Heart Attack, playing Saturday night. Take a load off this Super Bowl Sunday and head over to the Sail Inn for their weekly Reggae Party at 8:00 p.m.
We’re in a musical mood – not Oklahoma! or Sound of Music musical, just good music in general – so we’re rounding up some of the live acts taking the stage around the Valley this chilly weekend. Besides what we’ve got listed, be sure to also check out local venues like the Yucca Tap Room and The Rhythm Room to see their gigs.
FYI, we are also waiting for a kind soul to donate a few Roger Waters tickets to us – just sayin’. What to hear this weekend after the jump:
Vacationers and staycationers searching for an urban-style escape like us recently, can find themselves at the newly opened Westin Phoenix Downtown hotel. With dramatic floor to ceiling window views from each signature Westin Heavenly Bed, waking up urban in one of the 242 rooms is a breath of fresh white-tea scented air.
