From 2ndsaturdaysdowntown website for October 8:
At the Fox: The Tucson Symphony will make their encore appearance at the Fox Tucson Theatre and kick off the downtown-wide Who Shot Rock and Roll events and exhibits.
On the Scott Avenue Stage: In line with the celebrations of Tucson Rocks – featuring local exhibits of rock and roll photography at Tucson Museum of Art and Etherton Gallery, along with Zocalo’s pop-up gallery of local photographers, the outdoor stage hosts bands spanning the rock and roll gamut!
6pm-7:15pm: Combo Westside – “five member Tucson-based ensemble that blends more traditional latin genres such as bossa nova and bolero with contemporary music styles such as rhythm and blues, soul and funk”.
7:30pm-8:45pm: Cheepness “Sonoran Dirty Rock” – the kind of rock that recalls a time when cranking guitar extravaganzas were the highest order of the day and rock fans were damn glad of it.
9pm-10:15pm: The Mission Creeps “Surf-damaged-Rock-n-Roll” – a throwback to the dangerous edge of The Stooges and the serrated humour of The Cramps.
At the Rialto Arts & Antiquities Patio (SE corner of 5th Ave. & Congress St.): Kevin and Tanishia Hamilton present SW Soul Celebration. Starts at 6pm.
This year Tucson’s Pride on Parade will be held in conjunction with 2nd Saturdays Downtown.
