Ty Segall and a caravan of buddies stopped by Club Congress in Tucson on their way to SXSW in Austin. Quite an eventful night, seeing as though Papadosio was playing at The Rialto Theater and TacocaT were jamming out  at a venue down the street as well. If you've seen Ty Segall in the past, however, you know that his shows are not something you wanna miss out on, despite whatever else is going on in town.

There's no doubt that Tucson has a pretty rad local scene. The scene, though generally garage rock oriented,  seems to always strive to incorporate that desert harshness to the music and live energy. Local psych rockers, The Myrrors, brings that psychedelic quality that is greatly lacking in Tucson and does so by fulfilling that desert quality and incorporates shoegazey elements and Native American influences.

DJ Red Viking of The Wasp Factory interviews Austrian hip hop group - CHiLL-iLL

Who are the members of CHiLL-iLL and how did the group form?

CHiLL-iLL is a one-man-army. I'm a solo artist since 1999. It all started with writing of lyrics at the age of twelve/thirteen, influenced by my older brother. The live-experience was also a very important part, long time before I dropped my first release. After a couple of years I focused more on DJing and sometime later also on beat production.

Rialto Theatre

Music legend Gary Numan hit the Rialto Theatre stage here in Tucson two weeks ago on tour to promote his newest edgy album release Splinter. Fans, both young and old, came out to see the 56 year old sill rock it out. The show was a surly, hard-rock production. The rialto was bombarded with falshing lights, fog machines, strobes and electricity! Mr. Numan throw out fan favorites such as "Cars," but also showcased a ton of newer songs.

Marquee Theatre Tempe, AZ

The evening of mind-altering sound started with the duo of Desert Dwellers. Their set transported us to a Martian desert dance party. Guided by a serenading siren, we boarded the soundship that took us deep into the alien landscape. With crescendoeing beats we were dropped off in the midst of a raging spectacle of extra-terrestrial extravagance. Crashing comets of cacophony and dancing dodging ray guns--the party seemed endless. Desert Dwellers set the stage perfectly for Shpongle. The night of weird noises and body-shaking had only just begun.
