FUCK YEAH HOUSE SHOWS! Destroy Phoenix, Arizona

As a participant in shows from an early age, I have always favored the house show, regardless of the fact that over the years, Arizona has at times lacked venues for the more underground taste in music, but things have actually gotten pretty awesome in the Valley of the Sun as of recent.

Exclusive CVLT Nation Streaming: :
Sun Splitter’s “Time Cathedral” + Review

This album is another testament to the fact that they must have good drugs in Chicago, as their effects continue to echo in the music billowing out of the Windy City. The tradition of this chemical wedding is being carried on from the days Charlie Parker, but switched from doctor prescribed morphine to heroin.

Anarchists vs. ISIS: The Revolution in Syria Nobody’s Talking About

The Middle East today is the last place anyone in the mainstream western media would think to look for progressive political thought, and even less to see those thoughts translated into action. The idea of part of the region being not just free, but well on its way to utopian, isn’t one that you’re going to find in the mainstream media.

I arrived at the venue to a line-up halfway down the block, a few minutes after 8pm. I’m told doors were to open at 7.
