SRC - Up All Night

SRC had their own distinct sound and unique vision- heavy psychedelic rock mixed with hard rock overtones with Quackenbush's lead guitar style really contributing to their overall sonics. Quackenbush's technique was incredible, especially the way he used feedback and incorporated it into searing solos that are so expressive and can range from melodic to chaotic in a matter of seconds in the same song. This made the band stand out, although the other band members shouldn't be underestimated since it's when they all got together that the songs took form. Their music is the kind you get lost in, you forget yourself and your surroundings just melt away. Their sound reflected influences like Cream, The Pretty Things, The Who and The Yardbirds and other British bands. They mixed that influence with the sound of peers from the local music scene (the Stooges,MC5 and the Amboy Dukes) to come up with something very unique and creative. http://www.furious.com/perfect/src.html

Burning Palms - Nightstalker

Although they are relatively new to Tucson’s growing music scene, Burning Palms are fast becoming the next local export soon be on everyone’s radar. With aesthetic roots in American gothic literature, post punk, and 60’s garage (the band cites influences ranging from Nick Cave to Bauhaus to Patti Smith and even more contemporary punk stalwarts in the late Jay Reatard), Burning Palms tiptoe the threshold of punchy psych-rock and seductive whimsy. Burning Palms’ leading force Simone Stopford (Vox, Guitars) began the band as a solo bedroom project in Sydney, Australia. Her studies led her to the Arizona desert in hopes of becoming a yoga instructor, and upon discovering the area’s vibrant music scene, she decided to stick around and assemble a gang of like minded souls. Stopford found a kindred spirit in Julia Deconcini (Vox/ Percussion) and from there added the other essential pieces to the Burning Palms puzzle.
