“There’s nothing to do in Tucson.” Although that might be true, those who love music can always attend a concert. I try to go to as many concerts as I can, whenever I’m able to. For the smaller bands that come to Tucson, sometimes the turnout can be underwhelming. I have even seen some bands get discouraged by the small crowds. The turnout can be partly blamed to the fact that people don’t know about the concerts or just aren’t familiar with the bands/artists. Music taste is something that can be super personal for people. I know I spend countless hours and effort creating playlists for different moods and occasions. Concerts often get cancelled due to scheduling or conflict so concerts mentioned may or may not be accurate/up to date.

“Pumped Up Kicks” will forever be THAT song. That’s all. The Indie rock trio will be performing at the Rialto Theatre, and tickets were around $40.00.


Fall Out Boy is an iconic early 2000’s emo pop band that quite frankly, shaped some of our young lives.  Some of their most best selling songs are “Centuries” and “Sugar, We’re Goin Down.” The band will be accompanied by MGK who is known for being an artist who can “rap at the speed of a bullet,” hence “Machine Gun Kelly.” He rose to fame in 2011 and has since had hits such as “Bad Things ft.
