Say Anything » Alive with the Glory of Love in Tempe [Marquee Theatre]

Say Anything » made another trip to Tempe this weekend to wrap up this summer’s tour with The Front Bottoms. Fresh off last month’s release of their Hebrews album, the set list was chocked full of said LP’s punk rock pop hymns with a nice sprinkle of rad throwbacks from the past 15 years.

311 » came back to the desert and performed poolside at the Talking Stick resort in Scottsdale this past Sunday. It’s been nearly 2 years since Nick Hex and the funky quintet rocked the valley but this show’s magic perhaps made the wait worthwhile.
