The People Under the Stairs graced Tucson this past Saturday, May 10th, with a terrific hip hop performance. If you ever wanted to hear what legit hip hop sounds like, People Under the Stairs, or PUTS for short, is a great place to start. The group played at The Flycatcher (formerly known as Plush), and gave the audience what they were looking for, a healthy dosage of some real hip hop. The last time PUTS played a show in Tucson, it was November last year at Night of the Living Festival at Old Tucson Studios.

The Flycatcher, or the venue formerly known as Plush, hosted a unique show in Tucson last Tuesday. While there was a more mellow, sold-out show at Congress the same night, Tucson's more heady audience got to enjoy a noisy and insanely psychedelic show instead. Many Austin Psych Fest bands have been coming through and playing more intimate shows out here this month, and Kikagaku Moyo was a great treat for those who weren't able to make it out to the festival and see what it Tokoyo psychedelic music is all about.

When I arrived, Perhaps had already started playing. Their set seemed to be comprised of one very long song, or perhaps many, played seamlessly without breaks. They played a really complex sort of prog rock, with tons of key, tempo, and time changes. It seemed that as soon as you figured out at what pace to bob your head, the music had already shifted to a different pace. What made this fact all the more interesting was the fact that much of their performance seemed improvised which simply makes the mosaic nature of the performance all the more impressive.

Why do you love hip hop so much and what does hip hop mean to you?

Le Sous Marin:  it's the music I've listened to since I was a kid, my cousin made ​​me listen to my first rap song, I liked it immediately! I remember De La Soul, Heavy D ... then in the years that followed, Bone Thugs, Nas and 2pac. To me, hip hop is foremost the music of protest, the message, the rage and also, musically, I liked drums and rhythm right away.

Club Congress

191 Toole's dim, intimate warehouse is known for hosting some pretty obscure indie outfits for Tucson's music lovers, but on this Friday it was brought to life by the alt-pop talents of Dan Croll and Panama Wedding. It was both bands' first ever stops in Tucson and the second-to-last night of their national tour, and the small crowd welcomed them with lots of applause and dancing feet.

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.
