Sometimes, my daily mining of the innernets unearths small pieces of gold that must be shared with the rest of the world. Here's a live clip from what looks like a public access TV show called the Twit Show (why can't we have nice shit like this anymore?) filming on location from the Tucson Western International Telethon recorded in the Fall of '84. While I was busy picking my nose and . . .
This city is huge and filled to the brim with great music and all it requires for you to find it is to have an open mind. I have been in bands and around this town since about 1997 and I will never say that those were the good ole days because right now punk music in the valley and in the world is still alive and kicking ass. Here in our city I have been so sad to see so many people that are afraid to let in a new and younger generation of "Punk". This will not sound like the music you grew up on; they will not look like the dudes in that band from you childhood, but the heart is the same. Getting stuck in a rut is something a lot of us do. We get used to one venue and one group of certain bands, and we stay in that little circle. This is not a bad thing, but can only lead you towards not being able to find what else . . .
Yesterday marked the 3rd anniversary of a fallen friend to AZPunk.com. Sidney Copeland was an incomparable part of Arizona local music and the entire AZPunk family. His passion for music and generosity towards everyone he met generated an entire community of people who loved him and made the local punk rock scene what it is today. He was a father and friend to all of us. He will be missed deeply, but never forgotten.
Since the site's been back online for almost three weeks now, I've been spending a lot of time scouring the innerwebs for new Arizona punk stuff. Whether they're bar shows, house shows, skate jams, or underground conventions, we want to showcase the hard work behind these local happenings on AZPunk.com. What I've found is that shit is happening all over the place, and since we went offline a year ago, the local punk scene has continued to thrive and come up with new ways to have a good time. Did you know that Yuma just had a punk fest with about 10 of their local bands? No? How about that Wickenburg has one of the most kick ass skate parks in the state? Bottom line is that if you're bored in AZ, you're lazy. Besides the countless showsGot an upcoming show? Post it on our calendar! that occur on a daily . . .
