Apache Lake Music Festival Announces 2014 Dates

Future Loves Past performs at Apache Lake Music Festival 2012.
Since it's the worst part of the summer right now, spending more than a few hours at an outdoor music festival, let alone an entire day, isn't something we'd recommend.

However, when late October rolls around (and Arizona feels less like Satan's grundle) whiling away an entire weekend in the great outdoors while watching bands perform is something we'd wholeheartedly endorse. And you can do just that at this year's Apache Lake Music Festival, which was announced earlier today.

Rob Zombie's Twisted Haunted House Coming to Scottsdale

Rob Zombie brings the terror to Scottsdale this Halloween season

Last year when heavy metal musician and horror icon Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare debuted in LA, I was pretty close to heading out there over Halloween to check out what The New York Times called "the best example yet of the upsizing of haunted houses in the last decade."

Imagine: the theatrics and entertainment of Zombie's live show -- a hodgepodge of vintage horror film clips, haunting makeup and costumes, stimulating pyro and lighting. Combine that with a classic freak show, musical entertainment, themed food and beverages, vendors, games, roaming characters, and three different fully interactive attractions based on three of Zombie's own horror films, and you have Great American Nightmare.

Jimi Hendrix Tribute Featuring Billy Cox, Buddy Guy, Zakk Wylde Coming to Mesa

Jimi Hendrix's legacy lives on strong.

Normally, we don't care much for cover bands or tribute acts. Not that there's anything inherently wrong with a group of musicians choosing to forgo creating original music in lieu of capitalizing on the artistic works of others; it's just that nine times out of 10, there's nothing worth writing about besides the mad lib "(Cover band) plays the music of (famous rock stars) and does so (Poorly/Adequately/Well)."

We'll break that rule, though, for Experience Hendrix.

Musicians of Phoenix, start limbering up your wrists and get practicing. Not at bettering your strumming or drumming abilities, but rather your skills at tossing strikes and spares. That's because the Phoenix Independents Bowl is back after a three-year absence.

Local concert promoter "Psyko" Steve Chilton announced earlier this week that the charity bowling tournament -- which has featured a number of Valley musicians and bands participating along with folks from local independently owned bars, venues, and businesses -- will return in June.
