One of the Valley’s most successful rock acts of the century, so far, the Maine, will host a festival at Margaret T. Hance Park in downtown Phoenix in a month whose local highlights range from that multi-act blowout to a benefit for Club Placebo, a new performance space that doubles as a local punk museum. 

There’s also a new label launching at Last Exit Live with the release of a four-song local-music compilation, Danielle Durack throwing the album she released last January, a birthday party now that live music is back in the clubs and a tribute to a legendary jazz musician who spent his formative years in Phoenix.

‘Hookworm One’ release show

Paper Foxes

Hookworm Records celebrates its first release, a limited-edition 12-inch EP with one song apiece from the Woodworks, Paper Foxes, Shovel and the Psychedelephants with Bob Hoag handling the production. All four bands will be on hand to launch a label started by a local music blogger, Ryan B. Clark of Keep the Greasy Side Down, who says this is the first in a series on local-music compilations. “I see this as a set of records that encapsulates an entire era of Arizona indie music,” Clark explains. “So that way down the line, if there are 10 records, you’ll have 60 artists all preserved on vinyl at the absolute top of their production game.”
