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.

ROCKY VOTOLATO: MAKERS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TOUR

w/ Chris Staples (Doors at 7pm, $15-$17, 16+)

Seattle musician Rocky Votolato is a soft-spoken, very kind, very hard-working father of two, born in rural Texas and raised in the Pacific Northwest indie scene (where he fronted the acclaimed rock band Waxwing). His gravelly, sandpaper smooth voice and introspective lyrics mark him as that most rare of punk-rocker-turned-acoustic-troubadours: Votolato writes graceful, understated, human, unpretentious songs, demonstrating that simplicity is still a viable option for accomplished songwriters. Votolato is coming to Club Congress on September 29th, and he’s bringing with him Chris Staples, an indie musician from Florida. Hope to see you there!
