Tempe Beach Park 2015

Location: 
Tempe Beach Park, Tempe, Az

 At Tempe Beach Park, Phoenix, Saturday night, ten punk bands came together for an incredible one-time concert. Walking into the festival, crowds of skaters gather near the North Stage, leaving the remaining metalcore fans to linger on the south side. Opener, Strung Out sought to encourage movement from a large group of hot, warmly dressed punks after standing in line for hours in spring’s foreshadowing heat. Surprisingly, they did well in perking up an already inebriated crowd with moshable, fast-paced rock, even gaining me as a new fan.

With their most recent release, Clearing the Path to Ascend, Yob has demonstrated that they still can bring in the heaviest doom sounds two decades into their career. What really sets apart Yob from other doom metal bands is the gravity of their musical approach.

Buenísimo concierto. Great lively concert on Easter Sunday. Jarabe de Palo played a wonderful set. For those of you who are not the most familiar with their music, it is a combination of alternative rock with a couple of jazz twists, a lick of reggae and finished off with the zest of flamenco. Boy did they bring it Sunday night.
