Monday House Party

w/ DJ Sid the Kid (10pm-2am, FREE, 21+)

Retrolution, the longest running dance night in the history of Tucson featuring all your favorite hits of the 80’s, is finally being dragged, kicking in screaming, into the 90’s. We hope to ease the way with $0.80 wells – 9pm-10pm, $0.90 wells – 10pm-11pm, $2 wells (until 1am), $3 Beer and a Shot “Special” (PBR can/well shot), and a little Jazzy Jeff & Nirvana. Don’t Worry, DJ Sid the Kid will throw in the occasional New Order or Prince hit to help smooth the transition. LET’S PARTY LIKE IT’S 1999.

Built to Spill

w/ Lenguas Largas & Whispering Wires (Doors at 7pm, $25/$27, 21+)

Twenty years on from first signing to Warner Bros. Records, Built To Spill is set to return in 2015 with its eighth studio album, Untethered Moon. That’s now two complete decades that one of America’s leading “indie rock” bands has happily made its home on a major label, and in the process redefined that clumsy descriptor of independence by operating wholly and consistently under its own steam, taking the proper time to craft timeless songs and playing endless, epic shows to a growing grip of fans each year.

Tammy West’s music has been described as hopeful, melancholy Americana. The addition of some of Tucson’s most acclaimed musicians, Mitzi Cowell, Sabra Faulk and Micheal P., elevates her vulnerable and confessional style of music – giving it a rock and roll, bluesy, cowboy kind of vibe.

Bidi Bidi Banda (SELENA TRIBUTE BAND)

(Doors at 7pm, $10, 21+)

We are exceptionally stoked to welcome BIDI BIDI BANDA, Austin’s (and maybe the world’s?) first all-star Selena Tribute. Composed of members of some of Austin’s premier latin bands, Bidi Bidi Banda is the refried dream of Stephanie Bergara, a native Austinite who grew up listening to Tejano radio and singing in to a hair brush while wearing her mother’s red lipstick. The band’s interpretation of Selena’s greatest hits will leave you belting lyrics, doing the washing machine and reliving greatness of the Queen of Tejano Music.

humming house

Humming House

w/ Carlos Arzate & the Kind Souls (Doors at 8pm, FREE, 21+)

The spotlight on Nashville, with its musical values and timeless traditions, is currently bright. And no band embodies what’s right about 21st century Nashville more completely than the quintet known as Humming House. It’s the way they weave together threads of Music City’s folk, soul, and bluegrass legacies. It’s in the inspirational and revealing songwriting. It’s in their acoustic instrumentation, presenting mandolin, fiddle, acoustic guitar and bass in fresh roles. It’s in the pleasant tension between rousing energy and nuanced arrangements. And it’s in the voices, with two complimentary stylists up front and backed by the full band’s rapturous harmonies.
