Fri 15 Jul


w/ Skating Polly & Megaran (Doors at 8pm, $15/$17, 21+)

We’re supremely stoked to welcome back one of our favorite bands: DEERHOOF. From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, they’ve become one of indie music’s most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.

Retro Game Show Night – Sassword!

(Doors at 6pm, show at 7pm; event ends at 9:30pm)

Retro Game Show Night is hosted by Tempest DuJour, the “Delicate Flower of the Desert.” She is Tucson’s (and possibly Arizona’s) largest drag queen and has a blazing wit that’s just as big as she is. At RGSN, we play vintage television game shows with special “celebrity” guests and real contestants from the audience. These are definitely not your grandma’s game shows! This month, we are playing Sassword!

Yoni & Geti

w/ Headlock and Ryan Chavira (Doors at 7pm, $12/$15, 16+)

When we last left David Cohn (Serengeti) and Yoni Wolf, it was 2011—the year of the Rabbit, the year of Occupy Wall Street, and their first collaborative album, Serengeti’s Family & Friends. Somewhere amidst Charlie Sheen’s meltdown and Oprah’s last episode, the duo dropped one of the most simultaneously bleak and hilarious song cycles ever conceived, replete with tales of bigamy, reinventions of self, addiction, and disgraced UFC fighters. Woe leavened by whimsy.

(DOORS at 7:00pm, $10/$12, 16+)

With a fresh collection of songs written, ON AN ON ventured to California to record at the famous Sunset Sound in Los Angeles with legendary producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, Spoon, The Shins, My Morning Jacket). The influence of sun-drenched Californian landscape can be clearly heard in the new record, pushing the vibrancy and the energy of their debut to ever-greater heights. Come hear their polished new take on experimental-pop in a live setting!

Casey Golden

w/ Moonwalks & Crystal Radio (Doors at 8pm, Free, 21+)

Join us as we celebrate the release of Casey Golden’s new S/T record, which offers a space to reflect, ponder, question, as you swim through a murky ocean just off of a Brazilian shoreline, where all the past lives go to tango and drink Tecate. Before soaking up Casey’s sounds, enjoy performances by local haunted sweethearts Crystal Radio and Detroit’s Moonwalks. See you all there!


Sun 24 Jul

Sons of Texas

w/ The Living Breathing (Doors at 7pm, Free, 21+)

Sons Of Texas was spawned in McAllen, Texas, a valley town without the music legacy of Austin or Arlington. The scene vibes “music for music’s sake” with metalcore bands, blues-rock bands, and straight up rock n’ roll bands swapping members and sharing bills. Sons Of Texas solidified in 2013 around a lineup of local all stars. The group is Mark Morales, vocals, Mike Villarreal, drums, Nick Villarreal, bass, Jon Olivarez, rhythm guitar, and Jes De Hoyos, lead guitar. On July 24th, they are joined by local progressive rock band The Living Breathing. See you there!


Tue 26 Jul


(Doors at 7pm, $13/15, 16+)

Stateside Presents TTNG (formerly known as This Town Needs Guns), a math rock band from Oxford, UK. Come out and catch this incredible band!

Wed 27 Jul


w/ Hikikomori (Doors at 8pm, $5, 16+)

Listening to East Bay’s Happy Diving it’s hard to believe that they’ve only been together since 2013. A year ago, friends Matt Berry, Samuelito Cruz, Mikey Rivera, and Matt Yankovitz decided to form a band after previous projects fell apart. Since then they’ve been busy making music that fans of Tony Molina, Connecticut’s Ovlov and early Weezer can appreciate.

Featuring four of AZ’s finest surf bands Grave Danger, Shrimp Chaperone, Big Galoot and Arizona’s only all girl surf band, The Surfbroads, we will be twanging the night away. But what would a surf party be without ice cold beer and fish tacos? Have no fear, we will have the beer, and the Cup Cafe will be rolling out a Fish taco stand featuring their…

Wed 10 Aug

Muuy Biien

w/ Tele Novella (DOORS AT 8PM, FREE, 21+)

Formed in 2011, Muuy Biien was conceived as a loud, fed-up response to what some would say was a stagnant and uninteresting music scene in the band’s hometown of Athens, GA. Initially the ambient project of lead singer Joshua Evans, Muuy Biien quickly expanded into a full-fledged band. Evans’s hardcore ambitions were fully realized with the addition of guitarists Xander Witt and Robbie Rapp and drummer Jacob Lake.


Fri 12 Aug

Foxx Bodies and Lando Chill

w/ Lisa Prank and Logan & Lucille (Doors at 8pm, FREE, 21+)

We have an extra special treat for you this Friday. Two of Tucson’s most buzzed about acts, Foxx Bodies and Lando Chill are joining together for a FREE dual release concert. They will receive support from Lisa Prank (Seattle) and Logan & Lucille. Show up early or risk missing the party of the summer!


Fri 19 Aug

Touché Amoré

w/ Ceremony & Gouge Away (Doors at 6pm, $15/$17, 16+)

LA hardcore powerhouses Touché Amoré are joined by hardcore/post-punk pals Ceremony and hardcore punkers Gouge Away to bring what promises to be a night of absolute insanity! Come out to Club Congress to partake in the madness. See you there!

Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears

w/ Blank Range (Doors at 7pm, $15/$17, 21+)

Joe Lewis hails from Austin, TX – the collision center where Southern soul meets mid-western blues and vagabond punk. Unable to keep away from the infectious music scene Austin is infamous for, Joe Lewis soaked it all in and soon found himself purchasing his first guitar while working in a pawnshop. The rest is history.

Trevor Hall

(Doors at 7pm, $18/$20, 16+)

Trevor Hall’s music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – echo with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly and refreshingly universal message. While on the road, Trevor sees the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience.

The Melvins

(DOORS at 7:30pm, $20, 21+)

Club Congress is stoked to welcome back the legendary band just a year after they kicked off the start of their “Hold It In” tour right here in Tucson! If you happened to miss that show, consider yourself lucky, because you have yet another chance to see King Buzzo & Co. in action!

Sat 1 Oct


w/ Jalph, Sid the Kid, Andrew Shuta, & Bob Really (10pm, $3, 21+)

Four Color Zack is a technically dazzling “DJ’s DJ” and top party rocker at the same damn time, deftly cutting between arena shows, Vegas megaclubs and underground parties with style and ease. Between his winning sets at the Red Bull Thre3style World Championships and his unrelenting touring schedule, the Seattle record slinger showed the entire globe what it means to be the best behind the decks, but real heads have known for years that every single FCZ set is a master class in creativity.
