The Lonesome Wilderness
The Lonesome Wilderness is a Phoenix-based rock band, formed in 2011. Members include sex-panther Joe Golfen, his time-traveling brother Paul, rocknrolla Andrea Custer and Baron Brian Weis. They originally drew their sound from surf, punk and 1960s influences, but while their backs were turned, some southwestern dust seeped under the door. You can find them playing shows on ramshackle stages in dirt lots, backyards and dark bars – or occasionally at a local museum. Meet the band in a QnA session after the show. Free, fun and family-friendly
