The Brooklyn based sisterly project of Teeny Lieberson, setting out under her own name (more or less) after logging time with Here We Go Magic. Lieberson’s TEEN formed last spring and features her sisters Katherine and Lizzie as well as Jane Herships. We are excited to be hosting the lovely psych rockin’ ladies of TEEN for the first time here in Tucson.
Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti has begun. A new pink dawn is caressing the earth’s body as you read this professionally written bio. Legions of imitators of that well revered Haunted Graffiti sound will now have to go on back to their respective drawing boards. Ariel has written the book, and now he’s lighting it on fire and with that fire he has cooked up a new record. It tastes perfect. It’s as if the band had been dining in the fanciest of restaurants and they got food poisoning and wrote the songs that will eventually be on this new album that you will soon be listening to whenever you get it.
Three years ago, Baths dropped his startlingly beautiful debut, Cerulean. Released on Anticon, the record blurred the line between post-modern pop and the LA beat scene with devastating emotional clarity. Its tone was as celestial as its album title, taken from a shade of blue typically used to describe the sky. Fast forward three years and Baths has lived up to the hype and we could never be more pleased to have him back here at Hotel Congress.
Radar Brothers just finished up their 8th album, “Eight” with Merge Records. It may very well be Radar Brothers’ darkest, hardest rocking, most psychedelic, and yet most intensely personal album to date. Come see this super group rock the Club for this 21+ show.

Twenty three years after their T-Bone Burnett produced debut Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams led them to win a Rolling Stone reader’s poll as “Best New American Band,” The BoDeans are still rocking and harmonizing gracefully, touring the U.S. and stopping in Tucson on this July Saturday night, we cannot wait!
Between two musicians, Pinback lays out beautiful melodies that are deceptively complex, layering sounds and
instruments upon one another and trading contrasting vocal parts with ease
Fidlar returns to Club Congress with the Orwells for what promises to be a very exciting evening. After touring the country with garage rock phenoms, WAVVES, and playing some large events such as KFMA Day in Tucson, we are more than happy to host punk rockers once again. Let’s welcome them back to Tucson for the third time this year and show them why they should keep coming to our dusty little punk rock town!
