BSceneLive was born out of a potent
combination of inspiration and
frustration. With enthusiasm fueled
by drinking, partying and music ap-
preciation, we looked at the cur-
rent media and found it lacking.
the story of the tucson music Scene
was not reported, under-reported,
or rightly reported but lost in the
deluge of politically obsessed tit-
illation. Where was the encouraging
voice, so easy to find in the
street culture, but vacant in the
media?  We took a hard look in the
mirror, clear our throats, stood up
straight and decided that BScene-
Live would be that voice.
We want people to read BSceneLive
and see what they are missing. Be-
yond the well known events, BScene-
Live brings you what you probably
would miss, all with an eye toward
the culture and the Scene. how many
people really know just what is
happening in tucson tonight? We
will spell it out, take pictures —
heck, we will even promote our own
shows — whatever it takes to clar-
ify the concept, that tucson does
have a music Scene.

ver heard the story of the Little
Red Hen? Well, this is not that
story. This is the story of a little
Kitty Cat who had a grand vision and
found that there did, indeed, exist others
willing to help him achieve it. The brain-
child of local artist Jared ‘kitty cat’ McKin-
ley became reality, Saturday, January
2nd, 2009 at Rialto Theater, when his
newly formed group Po whaus Produc-
tions, put on a terminally hip and fashion-
able Rock n Roll dance party and Variety
show called Clusterf**k.
“I had this idea around ten years ago
and didn’t find the support, I needed to
make it happen”, said McKinley in a brief
telephone interview. He added that if it
were not for many people’s volunteered support, it never would have happened.
McKinley was especially thankful for the support and artistic license given him
by Rialto’s event booker, Curtis McCrary. “...I said, hey, can we have scoot-
ers, drive through the space and he was like, yeah sure; that’s kinda
weird, but okay.” laughed McKinley.
While, Powhaus Productions came together with the help
of many, non paid artists & friends, the anchors are ‘Kitty
Cat,’ Nadine Roselle and Clif Taylor. Desert Diamond
Dallas, also a major force in the core group was re-
cruited for her larger than life, talented and outgoing
persona; she is also responsible for conceiving the
name, Powhaus.

vided by DJ Dan Shapiro; the
focus of Clusterf**k, and all future
events will be on playing music
that is not commonly heard. The
evening was expertly directed by
Jonathon Saupe, who made sure
everyone was in the right place.
Lead Photographer, Omer Kresso,
got special mention from McKin-
ley for his continued support in
documenting everything. McKin-
ley also gives kudos and shout
outs to: Traci Miller (executive
Clif Taylor is known for his documentary, ‘Fuzz’;
an in-depth look at the industry of noise making
in which he explores ‘a unique subculture of
psychedelic noise freaks and vintage distortion
connoisseurs’. [ http://www.fuzzthemovie.com]
Also known as Chick Cashman Clif was the
frontman for the Countrypolitans, a band said
to successfully meld surf with smoky jazz, and
blues with hints of glam. Taylor as Cashman, has
been observed as a Warhol Superstar, as com-
fortable in a wig and cosmetics as he was in his
more hetero garb, at Powhaus’ Clusterfuck.
Chick and the Countrypolitans kept a strong
fan base in Tucson for nearly three years as they
set up weekly residence at Club Congress, until
2000 when the banddisbanded and Cashman
went back to being known as Clifton Taylor.
“He’s a just a really great rabble rouser” said
McKinley of Taylor, who served as host and
writer along with McKinley and Desert Dia-
mond Dallas. Roselle, who purchased
the tapes for filming, will also be re-
sponsible for editing the entire thing
and also served as producer and
business director. Andrew
Brown of KOLD served as ex-
ecutive camera opera-
tor and directed
all other cam-
era opera-
tors. Rock n
roll music

who, along with giving media giving
media coverage, attended the event
and in an impromptu moment, ran up
to McKinley and interrupted his spiel by
grabbing the scarf he had about his
neck, wrestling it off him and scamper-
ing off in a quite a show of fanatical
adulation.
Powhaus is hosting
another fabu-
lous dance
party, “Glitter
Ball” on Friday,
January 29,
2010. De-
scribed as
glitter, glam
and trash; Glit-
ter Ball is a 70’s
Glam Show, which
will featuring clas-
sics such as TRex,
Gary Glitter,
Sparks, Roxy Music and an assortment of
the excesses of the 70’s-gender expansion,
space invasion and the all the best in music
are among the jewels promised for the
night. DJ Dan Shapiro will again be spin-
ning the tunes and live music will be pro-
vided by: Silver Fox, Ultramaroon, and
Cadillac Steakhouse. Doors open at the
Rialto Theater at 9:00 and the live show be-
gins around 11:00pm. For a mere $3, you
are guaranteed a fabulous evening of
dancing, schmoozing, and general may-
hem. Hand silk screened T-shirts will also be
available from the eclectic and ultra hip
artists that pulled this event together
Powhaus will also be working in conjunc-
tion with the Tucson Museum of Art in host-
ing an Andy Warhol Factory themed party
on February 26th. The exhibit: Andy
Warhol Portfolios: Life & Legends will fea-
ture prints such as Birmingham Race Riot
and the full portfolio of Campbell’s
Soup II along with other Warhol
works from the Bank of America
Collection. As an after party
to TMA’s Warhol ex-
hibit’ McKinley

derground cover band show with projec-
tionists from 7pm-10:30 at The Rialto, admis-
sion for this part of the night is $10. Powhaus
will begin their extravaganza at 10:30, any-
one arriving at this time will again, need
only pay the paltry sum of $3; an amazing
price, well worth, the half a pack of ciga-
rettes or cocktail you might have to do
without for the pleasure of seeing yourself
on TV.
Powhaus parties will usually be at the Rialto,
but they may do other smaller events, such
as a 70’s Yacht Rock party themed house
party for, close friend, Kenny Stewarts, says
McKinley. Most of the promotion, network-
ing and advertising for Clusterf**k and
future events is done on Facebook. For
information on further ‘Superstar’ events,

MaLONEy’S
605 NORTH 4TH AVENUE (520) 628-1661
This is where the college students hang
out. Maloney’s offers good food,
drinks, entertainment and dancing.  A
mix of patrons at Maloney’s, features a
preferred frat/sorority house hang out
crowd.  Beer pong weekly and a mix
of music and movies playing on various
televisions throughout.  Apparently a
theme of esthetics with no point to
anything but still coming out looking
very nice.  The actual bar as well as
closing music is pretty obviously

DOWNTOWN TUCSON
BAR GUIDE
BISONWITcHESBar& dELI
326 NORTH 4TH AVENUE (520) 740-1541 
Bison Witches is a nice little place.
There is a good selection of tap beers
and a food menu featuring OMG po-
tions of everything on the list.  Also a
one stop shop, with an ATM right side
the door.  A patio out back gives a bit
of fresh air not very many bars on 4th
Avenue have.
cHE’SLOUNgE
350 NORTH 4TH AVENUE (520) 623-2088
A video jukebox and almost exces-
sively cheap and strong drinks make
this place a favorite, while the overall
tininess especially with a band play-
ing makes it a bit annoying.  It is also
very strange indeed to see a crowd
featuring customers wearing designer
and fashionable everything and talk-
ing about Taylor Swift at a place
called nemed after one who had a
severe dislike of capitalism.
IT’SBOUTTIME
616 NORTH 4TH AVENUE (520) 882-3053
Voted Tucson’s #1 gay dance club 8
years in a row by the Tucson Weekly.
Featuring Tucson’s premiere drag
show hosted by Janee’ Starr. Home of
The Bunny Boys and Miss Gay Tucson
America 2010 Diva.(Courtesy 4th av-
BarrEVIEW
food and good beer selection makes
this place a nice all around bar.
THEHUT
305 N. 4TH AVENUE (520) 623-3200
Tropical beach theme focusing on
tropical drink specials, very cheap Four
Peaks Brewery specials and live reg-
gae several times a week as well as
many special events.  The Hut is a
place to keep an eye on for their spe-
cial events, as they tend to bring in
some very good acts and events on a
regular basis.
THESHaNTy
401 E. 9TH STREET (520) 623-2664
Massive beer selection as well as full
bar.  More the relaxing place to enjoy
a great beer than party house.  The
Shanty features a back patio with a
beautiful garden smoking area hard
to find in the middle of the
desert.
BarrEVIEW
cLUBcONgrESS
311 E. CONGRESS ST. (520) 622-8848
The home of the arrest of the Dillinger
Gang in the old days.  This place fea-
tures several bars with several
themes, including a tap room and
dance/concert hall that features top
acts.  Perfect place to drink yourself
into oblivion, as you can get a simple
room complete with earplugs if you
happen to overdo it a little or a lot.
THErIaLTO
318 E CONGRESS ST (520) 740-1000 
Officially one of the best concert halls
in the world according to several rat-
ing standards.  Very reasonable drink
prices for being inside a concert hall
The Rialto is very worth going to see
any of the many world class acts per-
forming weekly.
dISTrIcTTaVErN
260 EAST CONGRESS ST. (520) 792-0081
Up the way from Hotel Congress is the
District Tavern.  A very entertaining
place with one of the most well
rounded jukeboxes you will find any-
where.  District has many interesting
magazine clippings plastering their
bar with large old performance art
posters decorating the walls for
plenty to look at.  One of the few bars
in town featuring beer from SKA Brew-
ing.

THEBUffET
538 EAST 9TH STREET (520) 623-6811
Order a tall mixed drink just before
happy minute at this great and proud
dive bar and get another free.  This
suicidal business plan will make a
quick, cheap and easy end to your
night.  Similar to what a Los Angeles
electronics salesman, Crazy Guidian
would say, they “pour them deep
and sell them cheap!”
SkyBar
536 NORTH 4TH AVE. (520) 622-4300
This newly opened bar by next door
neighbors owner Tony of Brooklyn’s
Pizza, this place is possibly the most
trendy and elegant bar in town.  Sev-
eral telescope images dawn the
walls decorated with a very modern
décor and a specialty drink mix that
cannot be beat.  A Skybar margarita
made with pure Agave and several
other specialty ingredients will
change the way you see a mar-
garita.
SUrLyWENcH
424 NORTH 4TH AVENUE (520) 882-0009
Pure awesomeness comes from the
Wench for reasons that are unclear.
A pseudo-pirate theme seems the
beginning of a décor that was lost in
oblivion as progress went on.  A
smaller side bar features several orig-
inal pieces of artwork worth seeing all
by itself.  A unique menu with
great food also will not disappoint.
Satan’s Hero, a take on a Greek Gyro
is I think where the pure awesomeness
must come from.
rEdrOOMat the grILL
100 EAST CONGRESS ST. (520) 623-7621
A cozy venue in Downtown Tucson
booking live music up to 7 days a
week. It’s a great place to hang out
and order good food, indulge from a
list of delicious beers, and listen to live
performances from some of Tucson’s
(and our nation’s) (and other na-
tion’s) best.(Courtesy red Room Blog)
PLUSH
340 EAST 6TH STREET (520) 798-1298
Small comfortable club with some
amazing acts performing in an inti-
mate, dark and very Victorian set-
ting.  The drinks and crowd are
wonderful after you get past a
not so flattering door man.
Please do not let that ruin what
is a wonderful experience just
past that door.

Patrick Hatcher, also known as DJ 2 Phat
Pat, spins music every Friday and Saturday
at Fender Skirts.
“Normally Friday
nights are crazier
than this all be-
cause ND Promo-
tions runs the
show” says the
resident DJ of
Fender Skirts.
Apart from DJ 2
Phat Pat spinning,
there are 4 pool
tables that happened to have free play all
night. The bar also has four flat screen tel-
evisions that have sports on all night. On this
particular night, the Arizona Wildcats beat
the Arizona State Sun Devils 77 to 58 in col-
lege basketball.
Fender Skirts also had something not usu-
ally seen in a bar, a projector that plays a
movie on a huge screen right next to DJ 2
Phat Pat (unfortunately due to the music,
the movie becomes a silent film). This
night’s movie choice was Arnold
Schwarzenegger’s 1994 action movie
“True Lies.”
I
t’s a Saturday night in Tucson and
bartender Adam is high-fiving a
couple of regulars who he says he’s
known for over five years. Fender Skirts, lo-
cated on North Kolb Road, just south of
Broadway has
an eclectic
combination of
mid twenties hip-
hoppers and
mi ddl e- aged
western folk.
Serving $2 do-
mestic draft,
$2.50 domestic
bottle, and $3.50
“U-Call-Its” every
night of the week seems like a
great reason to at least give this
local bar a chance. The party
starts at 9 p.m. and ladies are
free until 11p.m.. and after
that, the price is $5 for
admission. The music

The only problem with Fender Skirts is that
there aren’t any snacks available. This hap-
pens to be a major failure because the
bar’s sign outside reads: “Food-Fuel- Fun.”
A bar with such friendly employees and
the familiarity between customers would
become even more welcoming with the
ability to kick back and enjoy some wings
or cheese sticks.
Ultimately, Fender Skirts ranks highly among
local bars with the wide range of activities
that are offered, the generous prices, the
welcoming staff, the consistent music, and
the random stripper-pole in the middle of
the dance-floor.

hat a way to close out
2009! Let’s begin with the
headlining act ‘In This Mo-
ment’, who performed the last song out
in the audience while the crowd ran
around the band in a circle. You may
have seen the female lead singer fea-
tured in Playboy and Revolver Magazine.
Also rocking this December 16th show was
‘Motionless In White’, who maintained a
tight live sound while performing synchro-
nized rocker-style choreography. The lead
singer for ‘Animus Divine’ also tore it up with
his funky-rap & death-metal style vocals
backed by his hardcore band. Four
great bvands played, but one
stood out  without a  doubt…
The local band ‘Sinister Mustard‘
opened this show with the largest
crowd attendance of all bands!
The lead singers’ strong bluesy-
rock vocals and screaming guitar
combined with the bassists’
fun stage antics and the
drummers’ hard-hitting
beats made the audi-
ence recognize that
they are witness-

These brothers relocated
to Tucson where they
found their drummer Zach
Raves. Together, this trio
has played many shows
for the KoryLaos.com
Charity and have played
at least 70 local shows in
Tucson over the last three
years. Their new CD will be
released late summer
2010! See their web page
for upcoming shows.

alto Theatre 12/16/2009

culty, the fans went crazy over them.
There is no denying that these guys are
genuine hearted which is felt
through the personal, real & hon-
est lyrics.

ou may have heard the voice
of ‘Rage’ on the radio, perhaps
you caught a glimpse of him in
the indie film ‘Writ-
ing Frenzee’ or
maybe you’ve ex-
perienced his
band melting your
face off at a live
show! Ironically, this
confessed “com-
puter nerd” leads
quite a life in the
spotlight.
Born in Keokuk
Iowa, Rage relo-
cated to Tucson at
the age of sixteen where he picked up a
guitar and decided to be a rock star! He
interned at Cherokee Recording Studios
then graduated from The Conservatory
of Recording Arts & Sciences. After apply-
ing for eleven years straight, he acquired
his dream job at 96.1 KLPX as a weekend
on-air personality. The most fun he has
had is attending the KLPX Fest 2009 where
he met the bands backstage!
Rage also plays guitar for the band ‘De-
spondency Denied’ and has played
many shows, several for the KoryLaos.com
charity. They describe their music as
“grungy hard rock with blues & metal over-
tones” and their new CD
will be released spring
2010!
Rage resides in Tucson
with his girlfriend of 10
years Jennifer Johnson
and their three dogs. His
favorite quote is from a
fortune cookie “Failure is
a dress rehearsal for suc-
cess”. Rage has a cool
comedic personality
and his motto is “If it’s
not entertaining
or funny, it’s not worth it”. He
LOVES Guitar Center gift cards,
and it just so happens to be his
32nd birthday this month!

vorite networking
