Sun Conscious 'La Casa Ilusion' release w/ TOSO, Man Hands, RNA

Phoenix group Sun Conscious is releasing their debut full length record, La Casa Ilusion!

Named after the apartment complex that served as their practice space where they hammered out most of these tunes, the record evokes a sense of space, of heat, of passion, and of journeying

Recorded mainly at Josh Medina's studio, with overdubs done at The Listening Room, the record was produced and mixed by Paul Fergonise. Mastered by Dan Coutant at Sun Room Audio.

listen to the lead single, 'The Mark', here:

https://sunconscious.bandcamp.com/album/the-mark

In addition to Sun Conscious, the following amazing acts will be rocking with us:

TOSO - psychedelic neo grunge with hints of doo wop and twang and an incredible, unmatched flair for theatricality

https://toso.bandcamp.com/

Man Hands - really sharp, dancey, tight post punk with awesome tones and powerful vocals

https://manhands2.bandcamp.com/

RNA - the loudest band you'll see all year, they have historically been known to hand out ear plugs before their sets. Songs that destroy all concepts of time and traditional structure, you'll find yourself thinking, "what the fuck, 2 people are doing ALL of this?! Holy shit!"

Warm Thoughts w/ Troubled Minds & Language Barrier

Psyko Steve presents...

Warm Thoughts
with special guests
Troubled Minds
Language Barrier

Wednesday August 8th at The Trunk Space
Doors at 730pm / show at 8pm
All ages!

Advance tickets available now: http://bit.ly/warmthoughtsphx

‘Warm Thoughts’ is the continuation of Elliot Babin (Touche Amore)’s bedroom recording project, which previously took form under the consciously self-sabotaging moniker ‘Dad Punchers’. In 2016, Babin set out to create his most focused and dynamic release to date, without compromising the unwavering and occasionally heartbreaking honesty of his previous work. The result is “I Went Swimming Alone”: a new LP which revolves around themes of isolation, nostalgia, and romanticizing the future as a way to cope.

https://fattycakes.bandcamp.com

Squid Ink

https://squidinkband.bandcamp.com

https://sturdyladies.bandcamp.com

Hi My Name is Ryan
Hi My Name Is Ryan is the solo project for AZ based artist / entertainer Ryan Avery. Ryan has the potential to bring people to tears. He’s a “goofball” sometimes, a lot of the time, sure, but it can also be the moments in which he is sharing the most fragile pieces of himself, more dark and less obvious stories and thoughts, the instances that prompt a friend to wonder if they should ask “is he really doing ok?” where I truly see a connection happening that is rare and vital in art.

A Night of Good Songs? w/ Logan Greene and Asa Martin (+Localz)

A night of stars and balloons and Gatorade for all. Come hither, as Logan Greene unlocks the true meaning of life and love, in a way only a Tusconian can do. But then, be humbled by the majesty of Asa Martin, whom will drop you to your knees.

Local talent, trying to gleam as much starlight as possible from the performance will be the softest of Ronny-s, the harshest Sarah of Amstutz and a young Diego Galvan of Bad Times, whose friend's have described as "yeah. alright."

Show is probably $7, starts around 7:30 PM.
