Reporting on Tucson's New Music Scene, then and now. Basically anything that is in some way about music and Tucson (and Arizona, in general)

Legenary punk dive "Tumbleweeds" is now a thrift store! This was the heyday of the punk scene (for me): The Pills, The Serfers, Memory Product, White Pages (first gigs), Giant Sandworms (first gigs), Suspects and Pedestrians (reunions back then!!), and then came the Phoenix bands: Meat Puppets, The Nervous, J.F.A....and then the California bands: the Plugz, the Weirdos, Channel 3, Black Flag, finally culminating L.A.'s "X"...three weeks after X, Tumbleweeds closed down...only to reopen later as "The Backstage".
