BORIS

w/ Mustard Gas & Roses (7pm, $16/$18, All Ages)

DES ARK

She’s howled and jerked in sweaty houses and rock clubs, backed by a drummer, another drummer, yet another drummer and a second guitarist, and a small symphony. She’s brought big crowds to a whisper with nothing but her voice and a banjo or a tiny guitar that kept slipping out of...

NORTH Tour Kickoff

w/ Territory, Anakim, & Chamber (9PM, FREE, 21+)

The Southwest is a vast desert; pitch black at night and void of most life. It is this environment that birthed NORTH.

The busiest band in Tucson is hitting the road yet again, come send them off in style!
