Death Cab For Cutie played the Pot of God music festival in Chandler over the weekend. I got a chance to talk to their bassist, Nick Harmer, about the lineup changes affecting the band and how they like to kill time while they’re on the road.

I recently got a chance to talk to Neil Fridd, aka Terror Pigeon himself, about the band’s Surround Sound Lay Down performances (where they play for an audience that’s lying down on the ground). They’ll be doing their thing at the Trunk Space tonight, so if you’re in town you should really check it out. I know I’ll be. 🙂

My latest piece for PHX SUX is an interview with Daiana Feuer, the brains behind L.A.’s wondrously weird Bloody Death Skull (who will be performing TONIGHT at the Trunk Space).

I attended Viva PHX last Saturday, as part of a roving team of New Times reporters. It was a music festival that encompassed over a dozen different venues and featured a ton of fantastic bands (so many excellent ones that it was impossible to see them- still kicking myself for missing Fucked Up and YACHT). Here’s our group write-up on the event.
