    It’s July, which means two things here in the good ol’ Old Pueblo—blazing temperatures (surprise!) and lots of live music. Take advantage of the latter, Tucsonans. The local and national talent coming through the Dirty T this month is strong and the shows will drag you out of your day cave (a.k.a. your house, don’t even deny it) for longer than the time it takes to walk to your car. When’s the last time you did that?

    THE RIALTO THEATRE

    Adventure Club: Saturday, July 23. Music for people who have been to EDC like, every year, own rave brasrave candy and other rave apparel. Also for those who so aren’t into Skrillex and Diplo, but so are. Tickets at $35 to $40 at the Rialto box office or on their website. Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.

    Los Masters Plus: Friday, July 29. Four words: experimental Mexican banda music. For those who like a little rock and hip hop with their classic cumbia. Bonus: local activist performance artist dj dirtyverbs (Logan Phillips) will open the show. Tickets are $12 to $15, also at the Rialto box office or on the web. Doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m.

    THE ROCK

    Wavves: Friday, July 22. Wavve’s beachy-punk sound will metaphorically transport you to the band’s cooler, less sweaty San Diego digs—sike! The show’s at The Rock, so be ready to sweat and be sweated on. Tickets are $20 on Ticketfly. Show starts at 8 p.m.

    THE FLYCATCHER

    Foxx Bodies and Neely: Friday, July 29. Experience two sides of Tucson—the hipster one and the Western one—together in one night, musically. Go for riotgrrrl, garage punk (hipster side) tunes from local four-piece Foxx Bodies and self-proclaimed “kiss my grits,” alt-country (Western side) ones from wife-husband duo Neely. Admission is 21-plus only and free. Show starts at 9 p.m.

    191 TOOLE

    Kiiara: Thursday, July 21. Listen to the synth-pop up-and-comer (or future one hit wonder) sing “Gold” in person. Dance. Sing. Jam. Do you. Kiiara’s heavy bass lines will support you. Tickets are $10 to $12 on Ticketfly. Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.

    The Garden: Tuesday, July 26. Get weird with help from the odd electronic music of twin-brother duo The Garden. It’s bound to be an interesting time, especially with help from local indie-rock group Dirt Friends and lo-fi garage band SadGirl. Tickets are $10 to $12 on Ticketfly. Doors at 7 p.m., show at 7:30 p.m.

    CLUB CONGRESS

    Happy Diving with Hikikomori, Mute Swan and Ryan Chavira: Wednesday, July 27. Oakland-based Happy Diving has a turned-down, The Black Keys-esque guitar sound that’s nice enough, but go to support the local talent in the house—the atmospheric Ryan Chavira, psychadelic-shoegaze Mute Swan and garage-punk Hikikomori. Tickets are $5 on Ticketfly. Show starts at 8 p.m.
