    Music Heals Benefit Concert for Betsy Scarinzi with Sara Robinson Band, Ghetto Cowgirl, Pistoleros, Hollyhocks, Dead Hot Workshop and Greyhound Soul

    Last Exit Live hosts a special event tonight, the Music Heals Benefit Concert for Betsy Scarinzi. In her recent diagnoses of Stage IV lung and brain cancer, Betsy is doing really well and is on a daily target therapy which has given her time to embrace every moment! She is finding her strength in family, friends and most importantly through music!!! This show features a GREAT line-up including her band The Hollyhocks. This five-piece from Santa Fe, New Mexico just released a new album by the name of FireFly.

    The Sara Robinson Band is from Tempe and plays the blues and rock and roll. She possesses a soulful vocal delivery, setting the stage for a captivating performance anytime she performs. The band's latest disc was just released January 2019 and is entitled Only Home.

    Guitarist Thomas Laufenberg played in The Pistoleros and Curtis Grippe was the drummer for Dead Hot Workshop, both great desert rock bands in Tempe from that classic era in the late eighties/early nineties. Ghetto Cowgirl delivers that same type of great rock and roll.

    For those of you who were around during the late eighties/early nineties "desert rock" scene in Tempe you are sure to remember the Zubia Brothers. The two were in a couple of great bands from that era, including Live Nudes and The Chimeras. The Chimeras included Doug Hopkins, original guitarist and primary songwriter for the Gin Blossoms. When the line-up for The Chimeras changed the Zubia brothers moved on and changed the band's name to The Pistoleros. What never changed was the band's knack for taking that old jangle rock sound and adding a fresh twist to create their own style of rock and roll. The band has now been around for over 20 years and in celebration of their 25th anniversary in 2017 the band released a brand new studio album entitled Silver.

    Dead Hot Workshop was one of the original Tempe "desert rock bands" from the early nineties. Along with The Gin Blossoms, The Feedbags and Live Nudes, Dead Hot led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Brent Babb played a ton of shows at legendary clubs around Tempe such as the Sun Club, Long Wong's, Chuy's and Hollywood Alley. If you are lucky enough to have a copy of their self-titled first cassette, released at a CD release show at Hollywood Alley hang on to it. The tape has killer renditions of Dead Hot classics such as "A", "Lead Thoughts" and "Choad". A short time later their first CD was released, White House which featured the band's anthem "Last Train Ride". This band has gone through a number of line-up changes over the years, including Steve Larson on guitar who of course is now playing with Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. Dead Hot Workshop has released four CDs in its 20+ year career and continues to play great shows around the Valley.

    Greyhound Soul is a three-piece from Tuscon that has had a revolving cast of members over the years. The band has released six albums and features the Tom Wait-like vocals of leader Joe Pena. 21+ show

    Boy Harsher, Boan and Body of Light

    Boy Harsher is a dark electronic duo that produces gritty dance beats infused with ethereal vocals, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Augustus Muller develops the underbelly of sound with minimal beats and grinding synths, where Jae Matthews whispers, screams and chants on top. Together, the music created is somewhere between industrial, drone and confessional storytelling. Muller and Matthews both have a strong background in film and their cinematic approach translates effectively in both their recordings and live performance. Boy Harsher started in early 2013 under the name Teen Dreamz. The project was based on short stories written and read by Matthews then live scored by Muller. As the project matured the instrumentals became more dance influenced and Matthews’ delivery became more dynamic and spontaneous. In January of 2014 Teen Dreamz took on the moniker Boy Harsher. Their latest CD Careful was released February 2019. From the ashes of now defunct Texas darkwave trio Medio Mutante, Mariana Saldaña (//TENSE//) and José Cota (SSLEEPERHOLD), are back as the duo BOAN. The pair resurrected their hardware-based dance pop with an updated sensibility that is both dark and modern. Expressed in equal parts English and Spanish, vocalist Saldaña delivers cold yet catchy hooks over Cota’s infectious synth lines and aggressive analog beats. Body of Light are a relatively new creative force in the modern synth scene, only now becoming understood. From the archaic drones of their first releases, to a more realized psych soundtrack of their Sonoran Desert home, the duo has now come to finish their fifth release Volontà di Amore. 21+ show

The group has been noted for its interpretations of blues material and for its efforts to promote interest in this type of music and its original artists. It was launched by two blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite. After appearances at the Monterey and Woodstock festivals at the end of the 1960s, the band acquired worldwide fame with a lineup consisting of Hite (vocals), Wilson (guitar, harmonica and vocals), Henry Vestine and later Harvey Mandel (lead guitar), Larry Taylor (bass) and Adolfo de la Parra (drums). The music and attitude of Canned Heat attracted a large following and established the band as one of the popular acts of the hippie era. They have released 17 studio albums since 1967.

    Opening the show is Valley legend Hans Olson. This veteran performing musician has over 50 years in the music business. He began his career as a lead singer in a rock and roll band in Southern California in 1967. By 1970, Hans had developed into a very unique and powerful solo act.

    Grandson: No Apologies Tour [SOLD OUT]

    Searching for his voice and for meaning in today's divisive, chaotic world, Grandson's songwriting confronts the most pressing issues of his generation, such as financial inequality, governmental and environmental accountability and social justice, giving these topics a soundtrack with a genuine sense of urgency and frustration, while simultaneously touching on adolescence, relationships, and the insecurities and difficulties of growing up through your 20s. When asked about today's music scene, he says "I genuinely believe the world needs honest rock and roll, now more than ever."

    Calvin Johnson: with Golden Boots and Josué Kinter

    Calvin Johnson established K Records in 1982 and founded Dub Narcotic Studio in 1993. He has performed with groups such as Beat Happening, The Go Team, Halo Benders, Dub Narcotic Sounds System, and The Hive Dwellers. He tours as a solo artist, and also performs as Selector Dub Narcotic.

    He is touring in support of his new album “A Wonderful Beast.” Calvin entered the Audio Eagle Studio in Nashville, TN using the premise “Rock’n’roll Will Never Die” as a starting point. Working closely with Producer Patrick Carney and Chief Engineer Marc Whitmore, the team tested the resiliency of such time honored materials as the electric guitar, modular synthesizer and trap drum kit, combining them in various ratios with musical elements like chords A, C and D minor. The results are the Frankenstein’s monster of an album, “A Wonderful Beast.”

    Golden BooTs are Tucson, Arizona’s tropical cowboys, continue to create their unique and diverse music distilled from the dusty depths and strip malls of the American southwest. Part rock, part country, part absurdity, and all weird, the toe-tapping ramshackle hydra that is Golden BooTs transforms again into their latest incarnation, the “Tropical Trio”. Founding members Dimitri Manos and Ryen Eggleston have teamed up with long-time collaborator and potential group hallucination, tidypaws, to form one the most unique arrangements of the group in their wildly varying 15 year history. Armed only with an electric guitar, omnichord, saxophone and their wits, the Boots have released a new album "H.A.L.T." and hit the road to bring the weirdness to the world.

    Josué Kinter is a local singer-songwriter who's dark and dreamy sound is equal parts Bauhaus, Neil Young, and Townes Van Zandt. Josué went solo recently and established his backing band, the Dreamy Draw Boys after moving on from previous projects: deathrock band Hex Wave and surf-punk band Rum Drinker. This is going to be their first formal show playing a full 20 minute set of all new material.

    JP Harris and Jim Bachmann

    Born in Montgomery, Alabama in 1983, JP Harris doesn't fancy himself so much a musician as he does a carpenter who writes country songs. After finishing the eighth grade, he boarded a Greyhound in the middle of an early summer night, and scarcely looked back. He traveled the country, often alone, hitchhiking and hopping freight trains while making his living as a farm laborer, shepherd, woodsman, and carpenter, among many other titles. Still an in-demand carpenter to this day, Harris has been writing and performing country music for nearly a decade now, releasing his debut album, I'll Keep Calling, in 2012. His forthcoming album is entitled Sometimes Dogs Bark at Nothing. With a mellow, easy voice and unrefined, yet wise songwriting that hints of a life of honest living, Jim Bachmann has been entertaining the Phoenix scene and gaining momentum over the past few years. Bachmann's music blends roots, blues and classic country into a unique sound that stays true to tradition. 21+ show

    To usher in the upcoming Twenty-Twenties, famed time-twisting musical collective Postmodern Jukebox will circumnavigate the globe in 2019 on their Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour. The tour is meant to prepare the world for a new decade -- one that Postmodern Jukebox creator Scott Bradlee hopes will see a return to the style and craftsmanship that typified the music of past generations.
    < “Last time around the 'Twenties gave us Jazz, America's one true art form. Who knows what is possible in the 2020s?" says Bradlee. "One thing that is for sure is that there are a lot of folks that are tired of the clickbait headlines, mindless reality TV, and smartphone addiction that has only served to divide people in the last decade. We're using our small corner of the pop culture space to tell people to forget their troubles, and come join us for a night of celebrating true musical talent and timeless style - live and in real life."

    Los Straitjackets and Igor and the Red Elvises

    Los Straitjackets is an American instrumental rock band that formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1988. Originally comprising guitarists Danny Amis (formerly of the Raybeats), Eddie Angel and drummer L. J. "Jimmy" Lester under the name The Straitjackets, the band split up soon after forming, but reunited as Los Straitjackets in 1994 with the addition of bassist E. Scott Esbeck. Esbeck left the band in 1998 and was replaced by Pete Curry. The current lineup also features Greg Townson on guitar and Chris "Sugarballs" Sprague on drums. The band has released fourteen studio albums, four collaboration albums and three live albums with their latest release being 2017's What's So Funny About Peace Love And Los Straitjackets.

    Igor and the Red Elvises return to its Valley home base at the Rhythm Room this evening! Igor and the Red Elvises began creating music back in 1995 after Igor Yuzov had moved to the United States coming from his home in Russia. The band has gone through many line-ups over the years, but two things remain constant; Yuzov's sense of humor and the band's knack for making music that incorporates styles such as rock and roll, rockabilly and surf with a strong Russian influence. 21+ show

    Blac Rabbit

    Born and raised in the mecca of hip hop, Brooklyn, New York, identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor had more exposure in their house to pop, funk and soul music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. While attending a democratic-free high school they taught themselves how to play guitar and write songs based on The Beatles. They later formed Blac Rabbit, bringing in former metal and church drummer Patrick Jones, followed by resident shredder Josh Lugo on bass (and sometimes guitar), and most recently adding multi-instrumentalist Justin Jagbir on keyboard to play their original psychedelic rock tunes. Blac Rabbit’s fan base has increased significantly while they have been touring globally and recording their debut full length album titled Interstella, set for release in spring 2019. The first single from the album, "Seize the Day" was released on November 19th, 2018 while the band was on their first European tour. 21+ show
