    I had read about this some time ago, glad to see they came through with what is sure to be an awesome venue. That Sylvan Esso + Flock of Dimes is a must.

    I was just reading about this today. I'm pretty excited. The more venues in central phx, the less I have to drive to Tempe, the better.

    OOOOoooo SUPER COOL! I'm always in favor of another place for shows. Especially from the folks who run Crescent and my fav place, ValleyBar. Anyone down for that Sylvan Esso &/or Thundercat show?

    WELCOME TO THE FORUMS! :D

    Very cool! That should proved to be a good show IMO.

    I was at stinkweeds a few days ago. I should have dropped a line and said hello. We could have met up for a drink or two.

    Right on, I'm up for it whenever. I took the kiddo to Portland and we went through some cool record shops there as well as stopping in Rancho Cucamonga at Dr. Strange Records and also Amoeba Hollywood. Long drive but great time.

    PM me and I can pass along my #

    Soooo... who is going to Thundercat on Thursday? I wasn't able to go to Sylvan Esso earlier this week but our favorite local crooner was in attendance, @Donivan Berube.

    Also, THE SPINS: PHX CHAPTER is coming next month!!!! GET HYPE!!!

    With heavy heart, I must inform everyone that I need to depart the AZ VMP club, as I just accepted a job offer in San Diego. Making matters worse, my first day at the new job is September 18th, so AZ Spins isn't going to be possible (I'M SORRY @green.bean!). I swear the Spins just isn't in the cards for me.

    Tragic, very tragic - only not at all, because I'm suuuuper stoked about this move. And I'll only be a little over 5 hours away, Phoenix will always be my home, friends and family still here, etc., so I'm sure eventually I'll get to meet you guys!

    Congrats! Sounds awesome. I'm afraid the spins is also not in my future either, due to being out of town that week. Hoping @green.bean comes through and this becomes a monthly fixture, so I'll get to try again in October.
