It’s tried and true mixed with the new: longtime Arizona favorites Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers playing one of the Valley’s freshest live music venues.
RCPM plays the Foundry on First this weekend in support of its latest album, “Unida Cantina.” The band has released six consecutive albums that have debuted in the top 10 on Billboard’s Internet Sales chart, making it the first independent band to accomplish that feat. Two of those albums, 1999’s “Honky Tonk Union” and 2004’s “¡Americano!,” debuted at No. 1.
The Foundry, opened earlier this month, has already played host to Cowboy Mouth and the Love Me Nots. Blue October, Queensryche, Buddy Guy, Blondie and Joe Bonamassa are among the acts lined up for the months to come.
General admission means nearly everyone stands for the show, but an upgrade to the Foundry’s “Higher Lounge” section, elevated above the crowded floor, gets you first-come, first-served booth seating and private bar service. The show is open to guests 21 and older.
