's newest record impressed me back in April
, so I've been disappointed not to see more dates from them scheduled. Turns out there was a good reason for that, and that reason is now over. The band's guitarist Jason Kay says one member (we won't pry about which one) spent the summer in Tent City.
One of our members kinda sorta forget to get the mandatory Breathalyzer installed after his first DWI then got pulled over for another. The cop was unamused. Homeboy was sentenced to 120 days in the tents beginning in May. Satan himself couldn't have planned a worse time to be under the tents in the brutal AZ summer. He has been spending his summer naming the various rodents that were his bunkmates, and cleaning out the junk food selection in vending machines.
If you see these guys out at First Friday --they'll be at Fifth and McKinley on a bill that runs from 7 to 10 p.m. -- be sure to give them a nice ovation. At least one of them has been through hell this summer.
