  • Self-dubbed "murder-folk-pop" band Morphia Slow joins The Show for the latest installment of our Tiny Desert Concerts. Founder Allene Dugan talks more about the band's start and unique sound.

  • By day, Honey Danger works at the downtown Phoenix coffee shop Xanadu. But when the sun goes down, they assume their role as the lead singer of Pleasure Cult — a name that comes from the tabletop game Warhammer 40,000.
  • Phoenix resident Paula Tesoriero is a classically trained pianist who uses her background to write deeply personal songs on guitar. She describes her sound as “sad Americana.”

  • Taylor Glasheen has always played music, always written songs, always performed here and there. But when the pandemic hit, she went to Nashville and recorded her debut album “Tip Me A Dollar” with an all-star slate of players.
  • It’s time for The Show's next Tiny Desert Concert, and this one is all about the ladies — Sturdy Ladies, that is.
