*This show is hosted at Bonus Round, which is located at 24 W Camelback Rd, Ste DE, Phoenix, Arizona 85013. Bonus Round is an arcade bar so unfortunately, this show is 21+. The Trunk Space will rarely host 21+ shows, but on occasion it is the only option.
Jeph Jerman and Steve Jansen: A continuation of a first-time collaboration between the longtime Arizonans during Texas’ No Idea Festival in February 2016, the barely amplified duo employs sound makers ranging from patch cables to desert-sand-in-cup poured onto notebook paper.
Jimmy Peggie: Architectural microsounds of electroacoustic, ambient, and drone plunges listeners into the soft abyss.
Fade Into You: Clark, Tyler, Seletos, and Q make shit up. It could be racket, ratchet, beautiful, plum-colored, disintegrated, smooth noise, even-tempered ghetto-tech. It could be.
Michael Gelinas: Free improv guitar with a surplus of narrative arcs and story-like structures.
FiftyOne West is located at 51 W Southern Ave, Tempe, Arizona 85282.
Seth Kasselman will provide local support in the form of experimental clarinet-based tunes.
Cibo Pizzeria is located at 603 N 5th Ave, Phoenix, Arizona 85003.
Sugar Skull Explosion are also playing, and this is the release show for their second album, Zombie Party!
More on Dog Party! Catchy melodies, tight harmonies, fuzz pedals and big drums; what more could you possibly want in a rock and roll band? Formed in 2007 by sisters Gwennie and Lucy Giles, the duo draws influence from the classic sounds of the Ramones as well as contemporaries Ty Segall to synthesize their own unique style. Careful listeners will also notice a nod to bands like Cub and Tiger Trap, the former of Sacramento, CA lineage as well. Both play a multitude of instruments, but their live show consists of Lucy on drums and Gwendolyn on guitar with both sisters sharing lead vocal duties.
More on Sneeze Attack! A girl group vibe filtered through fuzz, Sneeze Attack's Maxwell LP recalls 90s South City singles, Sacramento's legendary Tiger Trap, and contemporary twee-rockers Bent Shapes. They formed in 2012 when Dino met Hans. The two started writing songs and roped in their friend Patrick for some shows and a single, Aurora. After gigging around with Dino's pet bunny and other furry friends, they hit the studio with Chris Woodhouse behind the board, Christine Shelly on drums, and Charles Albright on lead guitar.
This basement show at Phoenix Center for the Arts (1202 N. 3rd Street) features not one, but two touring bands from New Zealand on their "Escape From Los Angeles" tour.
Roidz is a group of punk rockers who will help you get out all of your pent-up emotions about how much Phoenix summers suck. They recently released their album of S-E-L-F-E-S-T-E-E-M on LA Label Danger Collective Records.
Touring with Roidz is another act from New Zealand, Perfect Hair Frvr.
This show also features local rock stars Whatever and Solomon Bobinac.

The Trunk Space is packing its bags and heading down to host a special "pop-up "show at Tiny Town Gallery in Tucson! 174 East Toole Ave.
Daniel Amedee & Gold Light: Living proof that a musician can be from New Orleans, but not necessarily be of New Orleans, a distinction that courses through his quirky, eccentric songwriting style, informed by a haunting bluesy vocalese that scratches the soul somewhere between Tom Waits and Captain Beefheart, and certainly belies Daniel’s 29 years.
On tour with Jake Stanton Music from Kansas City, MO. He has spent time in different projects around KC over the years, including Junkyard Genius, Steven & Mara, My Six Gun Heart, Seedlove, as well as other smaller collaborations and supporting roles. These days, Jake spends his time on the road, hoping to reach people with his music across the country and beyond.
With Tucson locals...
Dusty Santa Maria
Lawn Gnome Publishing, 905 N. 5th Street, in conjunction with The Trunk Space, cordially invite you to a night of slow death. Three of Phoenix's most road-tested acts will prepare you for The Slow Poisoner, surrealistic rock n roll by way of San Francisco.
From The Slow Poisoner website: "With an electric guitar and bass drum he plays catchy, offbeat songs whose lyrical subjects include swamp witches, sinister flowers, strange hungers and giant worms that drive hot rods. Like a late night horror movie host or a creepy camp counselor, The Slow Poisoner invites the audience into a weird world of his own design. He displays paintings to accompany the music and puts on a wild show that has been known to include dancing spiders, severed fingers and a giant head that devours him onstage. He describes his sound as a cross between Johnny Cash and Alice Cooper - rootsy but weird, like a hoedown on mars."
A pop-up show at The Lost Leaf! 914 North 5th Street, Phoenix. Note that this venue is 21+.
Lonesome Leash: One-man-band with accordion/drum/trumpet playing grandiose, foot-stomping troubadour-folk. Member of Dark Dark Dark and Hurray for the Riff Raff. From New Orleans via Los Angeles.
The Trunk Space presents: A "pop-up" show with our longtime friends at the Coronado! 2201 North 7th Street. A night of vegan/veg food, drinks, and chill Latin music on the patio under the summer stars.
Elena & Los Fulanos: Bilingual folk-rock, on a solo tour from DC.
Corn Smut: Wiseguy-folksters, featuring members of Yourchestra.
**Donations strongly encouraged for the touring artist.
The Trunk Space and Stinkweeds are proud to present the first Trunk Space "pop-up" show, and the third show at The Newton, 300 West Camelback Rd in uptown Phoenix.
Chris Schlarb's Psychic Temple
(Asthmatic Kitty Records/Joyful Noise Recordings)

Slow Moses: Desert-afro-psych.
The FINAL 1506 Trunk Space show: Jason Anderson / IHYWYP / The Dietrichs / Fathers Day / F/G/G/T/FAILUR
Kitten Forever: A Minneapolis-based drums and bass trio. Corrie Harrigan, Laura Larson, and Liz Elton have been playing music together for over 10 years. The trio trades off duties on each instrument, giving equal time on drums, bass, and vocals to everyone. This democratic approach to performing and songwriting gives the band a unified front, deconstructing traditional stage hierarchy, as well as a diverse set of perspectives, with unique sounds and styles for each performer. Their fuzzed out, caustic party punk is inspired by equal parts friendship and feminism, using a stripped down aesthetic to showcase big emotions. A band of bratty banshee best friends, Kitten Forever believes in each other, pets, magic, and you.
