L.A.'S Feels are hitting the road like so many bands are right now to festival hop through SXSW and more and their tour is taking them right to The Flycatcher, located at 340 E. Sixth St., on Thursday, March 12. The part pop, but mostly punk quartet is as good for dancing as it as flailing around like the strange bird you know you are.
Supported by local acts Acorn Bcorn and Daycones, you can expect to get your $6 worth at this show. Tickets can be found online in advance at www.theflycatchertucson.com, along with more information.
If you're looking for some fem-positive jams, Gal Pals is the Austin-based duo for you. With songs like "Here's to the Girls," the indie pop act is in it for the fun. Joined by LA's Susan, San Pedro el Cortez from Tijuana and Tucson's own art punk act Prom Body (in matching outfits, I hope), the night will be full of the weirdest sounds in the west.
On a more somber note, the show is also a good one to head to as it will be locals AZ77's last show. Bummer, but it's true so go to Solar Culture, located at 31 E. Toole, on Saturday, March 14 at 7 p.m. to see it all go down. Tickets are $5 at the door and the show is an all ages event.
PARTY LIKE IT'S ...
You miss dancing to ODB and Biggie and you also want to get a little grungey in your flannel and Kool-Aid dyed hair. That's cool. I get it. You're steeped in '90s nostalgia and the Monday, March 16 starting at 10 p.m. you can cut a rug with like-minded '90s-philes when DJ Sid the Kid plays all those jams and more for your auditory pleasure.
The free dance night, dubbed "Nineties House Party" is usually on Mondays, sure, and is of course home to the 90-cent drink, but this Monday's event will feature some '80s hits too, just to kick off St. Patrick's Day right. You can partake in all that booty shaking goodness at Club Congress, located at 311 E. Congress St.
NOT A MIRAGE
Get swept up in an auditory excursion by picking up a copy of the new Trans Van Santos (a.k.a. Mark Matos) release "Moon Mirage." On Wednesday, March 18, the part-time Tucsonan will be celebrating his new album available on vinyl. With sullen folk country songs with a twinge of psych, the music feels like taking a journey all on your own at night, which makes sense because it's about being in different places physically and mentally.
Like Timber Timbre, Hank Williams and Angelo Badlamenti mixed all into one, you won't want to miss Trans Van Santos perform at Club Congress. Joined by Saint Maybe and The Night Collectors, get to the show right at 8 p.m. to catch a full evening of solid local music. The 21 and over show is $5.
