How a Livestream Brought Me Back to Life

Photos & Words by Angela RoseRed

It’s no secret that COVID’s pause for live music has initiated many emotions to the souls who depend on “going to a show” to survive and cope with everyday life. For those who do not understand how real the struggle is, you fail to realize  this year + of concert silence was a time where many mourned like never before. Simply put, live music is the one thing that unifies us as a scene, which is a much needed outlet from our daily triumphs and tragedies. Music truly unites and heals. It calls to our souls and transcends who we are as individuals. Luckily in its absence, we found other ways to creatively cope, and in some aspects, it  brought us closer together.  read more

Stevie D of US Bombs & Glass Heroes Diagnosed With Cancer

Stevie D is a punk rock staple in our phoenix community. His influence on music and the lives he has touched are indescribable. I feel lucky to have seen Stevie D play hundreds of times on stage. Stevie’s wisdom and guidance is something I will always treasure. We need to come together as a community and help one of our own. Now is the time.

Stevie has been diagnosed with terminal liver cancer.

Per the gofundme page set up by Slope Records:

“What you can do to help is donate here. Steve has effectively retired from working as his care is now a full-time job. There is treatment available that can help prolong Steve’s life, but it is expensive. If you know Steve at all, you know he has led a, how shall we say, spartan lifestyle for many, many years and while he does not need a lot to keep the lights on and food in his belly (and good food at that…Steve has learned that a plant-based diet and lots of juicing will help increase his time here with the rest of us), but the treatments are expensive. The first chemotherapy treatment, for example, is almost $5400 and that doesn’t include the fees for the doctor and anesthesiologist.”
