Against Me!, Phife Dawg, The Heist at The Mint, and Sadisco * [Tank] Over the Weekend
Against Me! and The Cult at the Marquee Theatre
Maria Vassett Against Me!
Last night's lineup was strange, to say the least.
Noise rockers The Icarus Line drew comparisons to Iggy Pop while Against Me! played its first Phoenix show after singer and guitarist Tom Gabel announced the decision to start living her life as a woman, going by the name Laura Jane Grace. Headliners The Cult toured in support of Choice of Weapon, which fit right in with the band's illustrious catalog. Read more.
Phife Dawg at Club Red
Benjamin Leatherman Phife Dawg
If there was one point that was made clear in last year's documentary Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, its that the members of the influential hip-hop group won't be staging a reunion anytime soon.
Although Q-Tip is on (relatively) cordial terms with Phife Dawg these days, despite all the drama depicted in Michael Rapaport's award-winning doc, he's been plenty busy these days acting in movies, performing at festivals alongside Kanye and Busta Rhymes, and prepping his latest solo album The Last Zulu.

The Heist at The Mint
Ryan Wolf Fashions by Dillard's at The Mint's one-year celebration, The Heist.
The Mint marked its one-year anniversary with The Heist on Friday night. The money monikered milestone celebrated all things Scottsdale, the best and the worst. The lovely ladies of Scottsdale 16 hosted the celebration of fashion, fun and finance.
Sadisco* [Tank] at Chasers
The freaks of local DJ collective and party crew Sadisco* invaded Scottsdale rock bar Chasers on Friday, June 22, and unleashed a wild evening of industrial music and post-apocalyptic mayhem. Inspired by such flicks as Tank Girl and Mad Max, they dressed in insane and inane outfits while staging a party at ground zero and dancing all night to such industrial acts as iVardensphere, Hex|Rx, W.A.S.T.E., and Electronic Substance Abuse.
