A Local Music Segment airing every Monday through Friday at 11pm. Check out who’s featured this week and vote which band/artist gets their song played again on Friday!




Barefoot consists of Dylan Fay on vocals, Dylan Heinrich and Eric Folts on guitar, Patrick Smiley on bass and Christia Aroz on Drums. “We’re just 5 music obsessed friends jamming in Tempe, AZ. We rehearse as a band several nights a week & all love different kinds of music. After playing together awhile, we eventually stumbled onto the Alternative Rock sound we have now because of our vocalists singing style and our love for the genre and bands like Incubus, Circa Survive, & Queens of the Stone Age. Also, the scene around us as we’ve been developing shaped our sound a bit, playing with bands like Katastro & Sunset Voodoo. We’re just another band trying to perfect a unique sound of our own. Our new album comes out this Thursday December 1st. We recorded the drums at Salt Mine Studios in Mesa, Arizona with our good friend and producer Matt Keller from the band Lydia. We did instruments and everything else at his home.” They’ve got a few shows coming up around Arizona that you can HERE and don’t forget to check em out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.

Playboy Manbaby is a 6 piece punk band from Phoenix, AZ. The band consists of Robbie Pfeffer (vocals), Chris Hudson (bass), TJ Friga (guitar), David Cosme (trumpet), Chad Dennis (drums), and Austin Rickert (sax). Playboy Manbaby is the contradictory soundtrack to the contemporary life experience. Grimly sarcastic yet youthfully nihilistic music that seems to crash into things with a semi-coherent deliberation that can only be generated by a group of frail but over-caffeinated and eternally anxious young adults. Playboy Manbaby is the theme song to the sentiment “what the fuck am I doing with my life?” Indecisive in both message and genre but never lacking in sheer intensity. Their album release show for “Don’t Let It Be” is coming up Saturday February 25th at The Trunk Space. You can catch Playboy Manbaby on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Hear their song “Last One Standing” below, then vote to hear it again on Friday.

Robbie from Playboy Manbaby stopped by the ALT AZ studios to help intro “Last One Standing”. Check out the extended interview below:




Royaltides is an alternative rock band formed in early 2915 from Phoenix, AZ. Beginning originally with long-time friends, vocalist Josh James, bassist Andrew Zonoozi and guitarists Dylan Elliot and Joey Sardella, the band drew from a pool of influences such as Death Cab for a Cutie, Coldplay, the 1975, Switchfoot, Colony House and others. After tracking their first EP in March 2015, Jake Gillespie joined the band full time behind the kit. Driven by the desire to create music they love and believe in, the band plans to release another EP in the fall of 2016. You can find Royaltides on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Check out their song “More Than This” below, then vote to hear it again on Friday.
