Unwritten Law

on Monday, 25 June 2012. Posted in Tucson Music Scene

At The Hut JUlY 21st

Southern California’s UNWRITTEN LAW has become synonymous with the sounds of summer by releasing some of the most celebrated rock records of recent memory, touring the world to play for sold out crowds, holding the #1 slot on the Billboard Modern Rock charts and becoming a staple of the summer’s biggest festival, Vans Warped Tour. Not only have they become rock idols but also they have overcome pitfalls that would end the careers of most bands in order to remain relevant as others from the scene fade away. Now UNWRITTEN LAW are set to return with SWAN, their sixth studio album due out March 29 on Breaksilence Recordings/Suburban Noize Records.

I had the great privilege to interview the Last Call Brawlers and get an early listen of their monumental new album, The Pressures of Living, The Darkness of the Dying. They gave me far more then their time and a bloody Mary at Bison Witches. They allowed me to fall in love with their music and in return be loved back. The Last Call Brawlers certainly played to a packed bar of friends and devoted fans Saturday May 5th at the Surly Wench. It was clear in the talented guest bands, The Mission Creeps and The Besmirchers, plus the cheering crowd, that their new album deserved a proper celebration. With the splashes of beer flying out of our swaying glasses like confetti, we all did our part to ensure The Pressures of Living had one Hell of a birthday.

Raise your glass to Old Mexico!

Viva el Día de la Batalla de Puebla

As the largest full moon of the year rose over Tucson, Fourth Avenue came to life to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Most don’t realize when they’re slurping coronas that they are toasting the triumph at Puebla where, in 1863, the far smaller Mexican army crushed a French invading force. Since the expulsion of the French from Mexico, no European country has tried to invade any country in the Americas. Mucho gracias, Mexico. Much like St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo is more celebrated in America than its home country. America has never had a problem embracing a good drinking holiday. We’ve always been a cocktail... er, melting pot. In solemn and drunken respect for Old Mexico, the tireless corespondents of bscenelive were all over the pub crawl and beyond.

The Last Call Brawlers- The Pressures of Living, The Darkness of Dying

Written by Jamie Verwys on Thursday, 03 May 2012. Posted in Tucson Music Scene

When an artist creates a record exemplifying their respective genre, you have a classic album. When that artist boldly steps over that genre to deliver a unique sound, you have an album that will stand the test of time. The Last Call Brawlers have crossed many lines in the sand with their diverse new album, The Pressures of Living, The Darkness of Dying. The forthcoming effort of a beloved Tucson band is a solid punk-rockabilly album. It's their ability to draw from a wide pool of influences that make it a success.

Punk Rock night at Vaudeville Cabaret, Thursday April 19, 2012 Featuring the NecroBerries, ZERO-D-FEX and Full Story at Midnight!

Written by Daniel "Mickey" Robinson on Thursday, 19 April 2012. Posted in Tucson Music Scene

Who says that the weekend can’t start a little bit early? Vaudeville Cabaret says it can; and they’re going to prove it with. With a line up this good, you can’t help but think its Friday night! To start off the night, The Necroberries will be taking that stage at around 9:00pm. Warming the crowd up with their lively mix of Ska and Punk Rock merged into one hefty sound, the Necroberries are sure to have the place rocking and rolling in no time.

The Electric Blankets

Written by Jamie Verwys on Tuesday, 10 April 2012. Posted in Tucson Music Scene

Typically, I use a certain amount of caution when it comes to devices that account for 5,000 fires a year. After entering the ever-packed Che's Lounge on Saturday night, overcome with a warm and fuzzy sensation, I felt happily, worry free. The Electric Blankets light up the stage with an inviting spark that ignites your boozey energy into a dance that could very well set the place on fire. The guys are just too damn nice to do that,  raising their beers to the crowd and extinguishing any hazards with a warm word and catchy hook.

"Funky Bonz"

The "Funky Bonz" are a Tucson concoction of blues, funk, and jazz. A refreshing take on a genre left on the back-burner years ago. Their electrifyin' funk bass and sax combo is almost guaranteed to leave your head bopping and your fingers swaying. 

 


BK, the bands lead singer says his biggest influence, "is a band, and I'm always saying this, and I don't know whether or not anyone else in the band agrees with me...but I want to strive to be the white Fishbone." Sure enough, an estimation not so far from the truth. These guys pick up on a vibe the Chili Peppers left off at in their days of funk, and to top it, they have a blues-trained guitarist (Doug "Hurricane" Floyd) to melt your face while you're rockin' your body. There's a great energy in their performance, and the chemistry is apparent.

 

Funky Bonz' next show is going to be in Tempe, but those guys are sure to come back to take your heart away again, sooner than later. And hopefully with new music. New bassist, "(Cancer Free) Mark Lee" is beloved among the members, and is noted for being extremely versatile between filling in and battling illness. The members hope to have him along for their next venture into material writing. 
When asked about recurring messages, or lyrical direction, BK says, "We're a bar band. We have no delusions...We dont take ourselves that seriously." Be sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled folks. The Funky Bonz are here and ribbed for your pleasure.

The Supervillains, Robots EP

Written by Jamie Verwys on Wednesday, 09 May 2012. Posted in Tucson Music Scene

I'm a sucker for a well done conceptual album. A certain level of musicianship is necessary to delve into a source material and create something personal on many different levels. The Supervillains have led us to Hell's gates with their ska/punk interpretation of “Dante’s Divine Comedy.” Their six song EP, Robots, is what the afterlife would sound like if you had a hell hound gnawing on thick guitar strings as you gripped your last drink for dear life. Well, that is if your dear life wasn't still back in some other level, swaying under heavy guitar and growls, with beams of a cello beckoning you into the light.

FULL STORY AT MIDNIGHT - Tucson's own walking undead rockers tell it like it is.

Written by Daniel "Mickey" Robinson on Friday, 04 May 2012. Posted in Tucson Music Scene

Horror rock veteran Elvis Aron Deadly and I sat down for a conversation the other night, at the Evergreen Cemetery during the last cycle of a full moon. Although Elvis didn’t turn into a rock and roll werewolf complete with a guitar made of human parts, he did go into depth about everything from the type of gear he uses, to how he keeps his hair up for days at time. The front man of the horror rock band-FULL STORY AT MIDNIGHT tells all and leaves nothing to the imagination inside this exclusive one on one interview with BSceneLive Magazine. Please keep in mind; this is not for the faint of heart! You’re going to have to read on to find out what he has to say- IF YOU DARE!!!
Presenting Elvis Aron Deadly, of FULL STORY AT MIDNIGHT!

Welcome to Camp Gambino!

Written by Sami Gardner, Jamie Verwys on Friday, 20 April 2012. Posted in Tucson Music Scene

Donald Glover makes being a geek cool again.

If you walked past the Rialto on April 10th, you would have heard Childish Gambino bringing the roof down on a sold out crowd. You wouldn’t have heard me, but I was there and I was screaming/crying like a tween at a OneDirection concert. Jamie Verwys, my partner in rhyming and criming, held me back from jumping the stage. My stalking love for Donald Glover goes beyond his music career to his acting in Community and his writing for 30 Rock. His wit shines through in his work as Childish Gambino. He’ll make you laugh, think, and dance your ass off all in one catchy song that you’ll mumble-sing your way through each time it comes on the radio. 


Saint Maybe, Tucson's Supergroup

Written by Jamie Verwys on Tuesday, 17 April 2012. Posted in Tucson Music Scene

Talent enjoys company. What better way to preserve this connection than music? Far more potent than the frayed friendship bracelets of our pasts, good music remains at our side for an eternity. Local band, Saint Maybe have extended their experienced hands out to us, inviting us to spend some quality time with their all-all star psychedelic rock. Once you hear, “Everything that Rises,” you will find yourself with a quality acquaintance.
