person who impressed me the most in 2013
Rubber Brothers has been so insanely active in the first 8 months it brings literally everyone else and everything else to shame.
In less than a year Rubber Bros has already physically released over 30 tapes.
Not to mention all the festivals/shows he’s organized this year.
I know Robbie doesn’t do all of this alone, but hes still the guy who makes it happen.
All I can say is, “Damn, I’m impressed”

I know Fathers Day played 5/8 of them. I don’t care. most of the shows i went to this year that didn’t include Fathers Day, were terrible.
All of these shows listed above had the following things
-Solid Lineup / Show Concept
-EVERY artist kicked ass and played their best
-Fun / enthusiastic audience / people in attendance were in the right state of mind to make the show one of the best.
most impressive performances of 2013
APRIL 13TH - Fathers Day’s set at Clusterfest 2 @ASU PV BEACH AMPHITHEATER - Fathers Day headlined this all day festival at ASU. Their was a bunch of jocks who were crowding the band and trying to start a fight. Douglas Patton made them look like fools and the band played great and all the kids in attendance had a good time. It was definitely one of the best Fathers Day performances of the year
MAY 12TH - Drunk and Horny Orchestra @The Crescent Ballroom - We sounded awesome, played a really good tight hour long set which included lots of vaudeville-esque props and gags. It also felt really good to headline a show at the Crescent Ballroom and for it to be so well attended on Mothers Day.
MAY 31ST - Jason Anderson @The Trunk Space - It had been a long time since there was a Jason Anderson performance in phoenix that felt like this, i mean whenever he performs it always gets people singing along, feeling motivated, feeling good…etc it this show was packed and their was just something extra magical in the air, after the show i heard from multiple people who said something along the lines of “man, i really needed that” and that’s exactly how it felt. it felt good like when you vent to a friend to the point where you are both crying and hugging it out. it was what everyone needed.
AUGUST 15TH - IBN UBO @The Trunk Space - These guys ripped! their drummer was incredible, the vocalist was a real show woman and the guitarist was really intense. They definitely stole the show, everyone in the crowd was freaked out or impressed, not much else to say, they blew us all away.
NOVEMBER 16TH - James Rabbit @The Trunk Space - The show up until James Rabbit played was good sonically but everyone was still stand offish and weird. James Rabbit broke down those invisible walls right away during their first song and kept the whole crowd moving throughout the rest of the night. Tyler took a group of about 20-30 individuals who all seemed like they didnt want to move and turned them into flying jellyfish.
