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.
Lucy Dacus is done thinking small. Two years after her 2016 debut, No Burden, won her unanimous acclaim as one of rock’s most promising new voices, Dacus returns on March 2 with Historian, a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent. It finds her unafraid to take on the big questions — the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It’s a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos.

Pearl Charles’ newest release, Sleepless Dreamer, finds her soulful, often sultry voice gliding through songs tinged with cosmic Americana, a little disco, some classic rock & roll, and a whole lot of that smooth AM gold. Passion, psychedelics and heartbreak inform the highs and lows she rides through the album. Catch her performing songs from the album at Club Congress with support from Psychotic Reaction, a psychedelic punk band heavily rooted in blues, 60’s garage rock and psychedelia, 77 punk, surf rock, proto-punk/metal.
For a band that was randomly conceived at a drag show in 2014, Brooklyn’s Acid Dad take their craft pretty seriously. Don’t miss their dynamic psych-punk stylings alongside LA DIY mainstays No Parents and local slacker-rock revivalist, Jeff Lownsbury.
Optimist Club is Tucson’s longest running alternative club night! DJs Bob Really & Sid the Kid deliver the heavy hitters and house party favorites in the club, while a rotating cast of DJs soundtrack your smoke break with fresh hits on le plaza. Come for the $3 wells and party pics, stay for the music, dancing, and good vibes!
Music was invented/discovered. About 60000 years passed and these Nigerian geniuses Fela and Tony came to LA and fell in love with Black American Music, so they fused it with High Life and Yoruba rhythms to create Afrobeat. The better part of 50 years later, a bunch of Phoenicians began playing Afrobeat. A little after that, you started listening. Then you started dancing. What happens next? Come on down and let local favorites El Tambó and Santa Pachita help you decide.
Foxx Bodies, Tucson’s favorite locally-grown-now-LA-based punk rock outfit, is ending their spring tour in Tucson! It’s a been a while since we’ve seen them, but we’re sure they’ll blow the roof off the club as per usual! Joining them are Lucille Petty (of Logan and Lucille) and Rabbit Snare.
Join our resident DJs Bob Really and Sid the Kid for what has become one of Tucson’s funnest Saturday nights. $4 Stoli flavors & Maker’s Mark, & all your favorite hits from yesterday and today on two stages. Bring your dancing shoes.
Mary Ocher, from Berlin, has been persistently creating passionate, uncompromising work, raw, thought-provoking, socially and creatively pushing against the current, dealing with subjects of authority, identity and conflict. Her work is as enchanting as it is polarizing, ranging from traditional folk to raw 60s garage, ambient with ethereal vocals and abstract synths, to experimental pop with African and South American rhythms. Catch her at Club Congress with support from our local favorite synth-stress, Snackbirdy!
Join us at Hotel Congress for an awesome open mic experience! From music to stand up to spoken word, if you have something to say or sing- we wanna hear it! Perform on the same stage that many of the greats have played on! Bring your friends down and hang out with other awesome local artists.
High Up mixes elements of indie, punk and soul, drawing from a wide variety of influences- from Janis Joplin, Sam Cooke, and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins to Dead Kennedys and The Birthday Party. Whispertown blend Americana with folk and tinges of country to create a subtle and endearing sound. The two bands are touring together in support of their respective new albums.
LA-via-Tucson wierdo-rap trio Injury Reserve are having a homecoming. They make vibrant, jazzy hip-hop that seems to incorporate every genre of music you could dig up on the internet, from punk to grime to EDM. Join them and a host of Tucson-affiliates for the turn up.
