Dilly Dally at SXSW

Toronto rockers, Dilly Dally, have taken the music world by storm with the release of their debut album, Sore. Sultry screeches and grunge-soaked rhythms lure you in, while pop hooks and catchy beats invite you to stay, washing over you like an uncharacteristically warm day. Their performances are equally enticing, but with an added roughness that attempts to belie the polished recordings. However, both exude a confidence so rarely observed in young bands. Dilly Dally see a bright future ahead of them and they’re not going to stop until they reach it.

When I first arrived at McDowell music festival, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I’ve been to a few music festivals before in Chicago like Spring Awakening and Electric Forest in Michigan. So I had high hopes. Upon arriving I was quite surprised that the venue was pretty small for a typical music festival I was used to, but to be fair the lineup for McDowell was a lot smaller than previous festivals I attended. There were two stages, the main stage was significantly better than the second stage. The first stage was gleaming with lights and had an amazing sound system.

Interview with Makana (@MakanaMusic)

Downtown Boys at SXSW

The Downtown Boys are angry. Angry with the inherent systems of exclusion that continuously repress people of color, queer communities, women, the impoverished. Angry that those systems are mainstream. Angry that nothing is changing. But rather than letting that anger discourage and immobilize them, the Downtown Boys grab it by the horns and channel it into action.   

Andy "Marshy" Marsh with Thy Art is Murder (12/04/15)

KAMPers Andrew Trujillo and Alexis Walker sat down to talk to Andy "Marshy" Marsh from Thy Art Is Murder to talk about the IRE Tour in 2015, Blackcraft shirts, American politics, and the problems facing up and coming metal bands. If you haven't heard of these guys, listen to them. This group is amazing and they are such down to earth guys that you forget they're a big time metal band when you interact with them.

This was the second time that Soren Bryce has come to Tucson to perform. Last time, we did an interview and I got press for the show. This time I was on the guest list, and I met up with a couple of other KAMPers while I was there. The concert was at a place called Solar Culture, which was a very unique art exhibit/venue. I really liked the venue because it was small enough to guarantee a lot of people near the stage, swaying to the music, but large enough not to feel too congested.

Club Congress

      Both of the young, Californian surf-rock bands, The Frights and SWMRS, were full of energy and clearly ready to kick off their 2-month U.S. tour in Tucson. However, the Tuesday night crowd at Club Congress was not. It was a total bummer how half-hearted the crowd was, especially when it was obvious the bands wanted them to move around ‘n groove, going so far as to actually instruct the crowd to dance. There was a myriad of people wearing SWMRS t-shirts, but none of them seemed into their set at all.

Gem & Jam Festival, Tucson

To most of the world, Tucson is the home of the University of Arizona... and not much else. But if you're a Tucson local, you might know that this multifarious town is the home to many popular events, including the largest gem & mineral show in the United States.
