    Mike Doughty

    By his ninth solo album, The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns, you’d figure he would have slipped into a comfortable pattern, but Mike Doughty is not that kind of artist. The former frontman of Soul Coughing is obsessively, constantly driven to sound new. The elegant, charming album swerves between lonesome country influences, and trap beats. The album was recorded during a transitional phase in Doughty’s life, in which he left New York, his home base since the late ‘80s, for the “fascinating, mysterious town” of Memphis, Tennessee. The low cost of living has given Doughty freedom to make experimental music in bars around the city, while completing the album with Queens, NY hip-hop producer Good Goose over the Internet.

    The Lemon Twigs

    The Lemon Twigs are a Long Island indie rock band formed by the D'Addario brothers that channels the baroque rock sounds of the '60s. Fusing tightly constructed pop, sophisticated orchestration, and British invasion melodies into a ten-song masterpiece, the D'Addario brothers—Brian (19) and Michael (17)—are whipping fans and critics alike into an utter frenzy. NPR hailed them as "fabulously weird," Brooklyn Vegan raved that "they need to be seen to be believed," and The Line Of Best Fit dubbed their music "near perfect…the best lo-fi rock & roll anthem you'll hear this decade." The Guardian, meanwhile, crowned the album "a triumph of detailed richness and sumptuous melody."

    XIXA

    Brian Lopez and Gabriel Sullivan have been at the forefront of the Tucson scene for a number of years - as solo artists, sidemen, producers and members of Howe Gelb's Giant Sand.

    Four years ago, inspired by Peruvian Cumbia, Brian and Gabriel dedicated themselves to the exploration of the hard edge, guitar-driven trippy cumbia known as Chicha. After a few years of playing as Chicha Dust - and becoming one of Tucson's most popular band - the group renamed itself XIXA and started writing all new material, mixing their rocking past and their passion for psychedelic cumbia - creating a sort of desert rock with a Latin edge and a strong taste for hallucinogenic experimentation. Barbes Records released their debut album, Bloodlines, back in February and. They have just come back from their first European tour.

    With GOLDEN BOOTS (TROPICAL TRIO). This show is 21+ Tickets at STINKWEEDS.

    SafetySuit

    At the end of 2012, SafetySuit, the Nashville-based pop/rock band had just finished a full year of touring, experienced the thrill of a #1 record, endured a split with their label and found themselves rebuilding their entire team from the ground up. In February 2016 the band headed back on the road for a nationwide headline tour and played to the biggest crowds of their career. With that momentum, the band completed their third album, which they say is their best to date. Now the band is poised and ready to have the biggest moment of their career.

    w/ Armors

    Tickets available at STINKWEEDS and Crescent Ballroom!
