The Archives: August
Once a month, The Spec editors will compile a list of articles published on The Spec in years past. The Archives is an opportunity for SPECtators, both old and new, to explore content that may have gone under the radar.
Check out some of our favorites from the past…
“La Cerca: Sunrise for Everyone,” originally published August 29, 2014
This album unexpectedly showed up in our P.O. box last year and it was a pleasant surprise. This was my first introduction to La Cerca, an Arizona-based band, and I have to say that I am so happy to have met them.
“Station to Station Tour: Nine Stops in One Month,” originally published August 19, 2013
This was such a cool event — a tour along train stations, including one in Winslow. Also, let’s take a moment to swoon over the lineup “Cat Power, Twin Shadow, Beck, The Congos, Yoshimio, Sun Araw, Nite Jewel, Giorgio Moroder, Lucky Dragons, The Black Monks of Mississippi, Eleanor Friedberger, THEEsatisfaction, Charlotte Gainsbourg, No Age, Savages and more.” I’d love to see a repeat.
“The SPECifics: John Densmore on His Past, Current Trajectory,” originally published August 12, 2014
When you get the opportunity to interview the drummer from The Doors, you always say yes. This was a great opportunity and a big moment for our intern Nicholas Robello.
“‘Bigger Than Sound’ Documents Rise of Charlie Levy, Stateside Presents,” originally published August 31, 2012
ASU journalism students created this film to highlight Charlie Levy and the great work he’s done for the local music scene. On top of the venues mentioned in the documentary, we can now add Valley Bar to the list of achievements.
