The Noise did a great review of the festival – click here to check it out.

STEVE CHILTON – Sundressed / Awakebutstillinbed – February 18 at Valley Bar
“Sundressed are one of the hardest working bands in Phoenix right now. Been putting them on shows for years and it is great to see the hard work starting to really pay off. This show is one of the first dates on their tour with Awakebutstillinbed. If you missed their set at 8123 Fest this is the next chance to see them in AZ.” (TIX)

JEFF TAYLOR – Alex Cameron & Roy Molloy – February 5 at The Rebel Lounge
“I’m just recently getting familiar with Alex Cameron’s music, but it seems like this show will be hilarious.” (TIX)

DEVAN HASH – Holy Fawn at The Rebel Lounge – Saturday, February 9th
“Come support local music with Holy Fawn, Twin Ponies, Celebration Guns and Palm Springs Eternal. These are quickly becoming some of my favorite local bands (shhh, don’t tell the others) and it’s sure to be a party! See you there!!” (TIX)

SHANNON HARDEN – Holy Fawn at The Rebel Lounge – Saturday, February 9th
“Devan stole my staff pick! I am also totally stoked for this show. With a lineup stacked with locals you’d never expect to be locals (because they’re so good—no offense, other local bands) on a prime weekend night, I can’t think of a reason anyone would be anywhere BUT this show on Saturday.” (TIX)
