w/ Quel Bordel & BandàpArt (Doors at 7:30pm, $7, 21+)

Music from around the world collides as we invite Tesoro, Quel Bordel and BandàpArt to the Club Congress stage. Tesoro’s beautifully mixed styles of puro flamenco, rumba, cumbia, Latin pop, rock, funk and blues meet Quel Bordel’s eclectic world punk and BandàpArt’s French folk/pop, creating a night of worldly exploration that will leave you itching to travel beyond our dusty little town.

Retro Game Show Night – The Mismatch Game

(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!

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.

Matt The Electrician

Matt the Electrician

(Doors at 7pm, Free, 21+)

Despite the name, Matt the Electrician is no longer an electrician, focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, a dozen records, and literally thousands of shows. It’s folk music for a modern age, rooted in lyrics that focus on the realities and challenges of the 21st century as opposed to, say, the old-school thrill of hopping trains. Catch this grounding show at Club Congress, there may or may not be some awesome surprise guests….!

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.

Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas

w/ Tancred (Doors at 7pm, $10/12, 16+)

Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas are a Detroit-based band serving up a brilliantly polyglot sonic stew – equal parts rockabilly and surf pop, cabaret jazz and funky reggae, Latin psych and Gypsy punk – all cooked up on the hot Motor City pavement and seasoned by that distinctly Detroit combination of blasted R&B, showband theatrics, and limitless rock ‘n’ soul energy. They are being joined at Club Congress by an equally fresh and exciting band, Tancred. We hope to see you at the show!

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.
