Panama Wedding's Peter Kirk, interviewed by Tatum Schranz

This past Friday at 191 Toole I caught up with Peter Kirk, frontman of budding indie outfit Panama Wedding. The band opened for Dan Croll (full concert review here!) and hung out at the merch table after their set, which is where I was able to find out more about Panama Wedding’s start, what’s in store for the future, and some pretty interesting connections they have in the business.

1st ANNUAL WILD WILD WEST FEST

ART, MUSIC, SUSTAINABILITY

 

Two weeks ago Tucson’s 8 Minutes to Burn (reggae/funk/world fusion/jam band) hosted the first annual Wild Wild West Fest, the newest live music, arts and sustainability festival in the Southwest. The three-day fest kicked off Friday April 25th, and though the turn out this year was small, the spirit was high.

The electrofunk duo, Chromeo, performed April 19th at The Marquee in Tempe, Arizona. Tokimonsta, the American electronic music producer and DJ, opened up the show for Chromeo Saturday night. Her performance was captivating, but did not resemble her typical sound. I attribute this to the fact that she was opening for a more mainstream artist. My personal favorite track of Tokimonsta is Darkest (Dim), but unfortunately she did not play it on Saturday. Her set mostly revolved around her newest album titled Half Shadows, which I recommend you check out.

The Gogol Bordello with special guests Act Rights concert, was an amazing show to say the least. The show started with the opening band, Act Rights, who did a great job of warming up the crowd. Sometimes bands sound really good on their recordings, but not as good live, this was not the case with Act Rights. The group did not lose any of their style in their performance. Act Rights' ability to play live with such skill, truly enchanced the experience of their songs. The main act, Gogol Bordello, far exceeded my expectations, which were already very high.
