Club Crawl Returns on Oct. 6
September 28, 2012
Grammy Award winning band DeVotchKa will headline the Tucson Weekly’s Fall Club Crawl that will fill the Downtown streets and clubs on Oct. 6.
Club Crawl gates open at 7 p.m. with more than 25 stages of live music playing into the wee hours.
Advance wristbands are now on sale for $8 at Zia Records for Tucson’s largest music festival.
Club Crawl’s big draw is DeVotchKa, one of the top touring indie bands, playing at the Rialto Theatre from 11:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. The band won a Grammy Award in 2006 for performing all the music for the hit movie, “Little Miss Sunshine.”
DeVotchKa returns to Tucson after playing for capacity crowds at both the 2010 HoCo Festival at Hotel Congress and at the Rialto Theatre in 2009. Club Crawl is offering limited special priority seating, either in front of the stage or in a reserved seat in the balcony. These tickets can be purchased for $15 and will also include a Club Crawl wristband. They are only available through the Rialto Box office at 318 E. Congress or here.
Playing over at Club Congress will be The Hood Internet, a duo from Chicago that specializes in creating a unique dance sound by mixing indie music, pop, R&B with hip hop beats. Their 2012 National Tour hitting Club Crawl will be promoting the release of their new CD titled Feat.
Also on the tour will be the following three acts: Body Language, an electro pop quartet from Brooklyn that combines dance, funk, soul, and a hint of pop; Kid Static, a hip hop and soul artist from Chicago; and dance band Oscillator Bug.
This year on their outdoor stage, Hotel Congress will be hosting the Wavelab Studios showcase, featuring Greyhound Soul, Copper & Congress, Ferrodyne and Saint Maybe.
Club Crawl will have three outdoor stages on Congress Street and 5th Ave. Featured acts will include the soul band Black Carl from Phoenix, The rockabilly band Mad Max and The Wild Ones featuring a dad and his three sons, Far West, the top Americana band from Los Angeles, and from Phoenix XS Band performing a mix of latin, funk and R&B.
Other notable acts performing will be Fayuca playing their mix of Latin, reggae and punk at the Hut Outdoor Stage, The Pork Torta at The District and Salvador Duran at Martin’s.
The remaining participating venues that will feature entertainment for Club Crawl will be Zen Rock, O’Malley’s, Screening Room, Sacred Machine Museum, The Hub, Playground, 47 Scott, Enoteca, Iguana Café, Cushing Street, Casa Vicente, Café Passe, Delectables, Creative Ventures, and Magpies.
