The Death and the Eulogy of My Chemical Romance

For 12 years 'My Chemical Romance' was a fixture in the pop-punk music scene. 

The Jersey City product was wildly successful by almost any measure. They amassed over 11 million followers on Facebook which is indicative of their widespread popularity. Both their second and third albums, 'Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge,' and 'The Black Parade' earned the Platinum designation in the United States for selling over 1 million records. 


What's up, Tucson?!

Something really exciting is happening on February 21. 12th Planet will be at the Rialto for his Smog City North American Tour! And, he just so happens to be touring with some really, really awesome openers. 

8th Annual Gem and Jam Festival

There's no doubt that February is one of the best times to be in Tucson. The spring weather is starting to creep up and fill the days with that warm desert sun, the city is filled with world travelers coming in for the Gem and Mineral show, and now we have what is going to be one of the best festivals in the country for electronic music - the 8th annual Gem and Jam. Some people may be weary of a music festival in a college town, but Gem and Jam is far from your average binge drinkin-Coachella-esque kinda festival.
