Location: 
Crescent Ballroom, Phoenix, AZ

I had the pleasure of seeing Knox Hamilton and Coasts perform at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix on Monday, May 16th. I had heard about Coasts through KAMP Radio, so I was very excited to see them live. But first, Knox Hamilton was up to perform songs from their EP, “How’s Your Mind” and some new tunes that have yet to be released. The band name comes from the lead singer’s thrift shop adventure.

I had the pleasure of attending and photographing the May 4th Sunn O))) concert in Tucson at The Rialto. This was my first time photographing an event (or anything really), so please pardon blur and poorly lit photos, this was a very dim concert to be my first.

Wet Electric 2016

Acts: 
Dada Life
Acts: 
3LAU
Acts: 
Bro Safari
Concert Date: 
Sat, 04/30/2016
Location: 
Big Surf Waterpark, Tempe

Although big electronic shows are nowhere near exclusive to Arizona, Wet Electric's annual takeover of Big Surf Waterpark is a move that undoubtedly sets our state's EDM scene apart from the rest. As the largest waterpark music festival in the country, Wet Electric has the perfect pitch--one-of-a-kind experience, early enough to be a summer kickoff event, in a state hot enough to warrant waterparks in April, stacked lineups, 18+ for more inclusiveness, and centralized location near the ASU main campus for safe access.

M83’s presence in Arizona has been scarce at best, as I know I haven’t had the privilege of watching them perform live since I fell in love with the band five or six years ago.

Mild High Club Interview

Sporting a self-made propeller hat and hanging outside of a grungy silver Honda Odyssey (affectionately dubbed the “Silver Bullet”), Chicago-born Alex Brettin’s goofy slacker getup could not have stood out more against the University of Arizona’s pristine campus.

Location: 
The Rialto Theatre

It has been three years to the day since the Nameless Ghouls of Ghost have graced our humble city with their presence, and what a long three years it has been. While they've been to Phoenix several times in the last few years, Tucson has had a very severe lack of the Swedish group's unique brand of occult rock, hence the completely sold out show. With lines stretching down the block, a legion of devout fans waited in agony to get a glimpse of their dark Pope and his five devilish acolytes.

My SXSW was a whirlwind, as I was consumed by the masses of people who had converged on downtown Austin for the festival. Among the dozens of artists I had the chance to see, I’ve selected my top four performances, one from each day of the festival.

SXSW 2016 Highlights - Tuesday & Wednesday

SXSW 2016
Concert Date:

Location: 
Austin, TX

This March, I got the opportunity to travel with some of my KAMP colleagues to Austin, Texas for the SXSW Music festival. The whole experience was an absolute blast, and while my age (i.e., under 21) prevented me from seeing a lot of what the festival had to offer, I still saw plenty of great live acts. Below are some of my highlights from the first two days of SXSW Music, and keep an eye out for Alternative Music Director Jakub Safar's writeup on the rest of the week.
