After wrapping up a series of big festival dates this summer, Alt country popsmiths Pinegove will be visiting the Ole Pueblo this fall during a North American tour with charming lo-fi acts Florist and Lomelda. Their debut album, Cardinal—with its yearning vocals and uplifting choruses—was a surprise hit upon its release last year in stark contrast to the glitzy pop and heavy rock pervading the indie landscape. Recommended to fans of Wilco, Built to Spill, and those latter-day Fleetwood Mac records!

Join us for another lovely Saturday evening on the Hotel Congress plaza for our Fall Concert Series! This weekend, we are delighted to welcome local legend Peter Dalton Ronstadt y Los Tucsonenses to our stage! This event is free and family friendly.
Todd Rittmann made his name with US Maple, a band that was criminally underrated when they first broke onto the scene with their landmark 1995 album, “Long Hair in Three Stages,” who’s angular guitar riffs went on to undeniably influence EVERYTHING that happened in indie rock in the decades that followed. Rittmann’s new band Dead Rider has shown that his inventive guitar work, seconded only by the taut musicianship of The Jesus Lizard’s Duane Denison, can still get us into a groove. Their new album, “Crew Licks,” is out soon on the incomparable Drag City Records.
Ynot Karaoke is hands down Tucson’s largest karaoke company providing the largest song selection and best quality karaoke equipment. You can join them here at the Hotel Congress every Sunday from 10pm-2am for FREE. Cap off your weekend the right way, singing with your friends!
Washington DC’s Caustic Casanova is hard rock, but with an arty, literary twist: part sludgy stoner metal, part Talking Heads. See them alongside local headbangers Dayak and Carbon Canyon!
Holy Wave are psych rock at its finest. At once oozing with color and fading into the darkness, Holy Wave’s droning swells are infectious. We are so excited to welcome them back to our Club Congress stage, with support from Al Lover.
