This year we decided to celebrate the fact that AZ KAOS is now in it’s 6th year of existence. What started as an idea a couple of friends had has gone from a Myspace page, to a DIY printed zine to the website we have now. To me this is still new and just getting started as there is so much more I, Mikey Kaos and partner in crime Gaby Car want to do and accomplish…got to have dreams right? We are covering our second Punk Rock Bowling festival as press, covered KUKQ’s That Damn Show and continue to do countless local shows around the valley. We are working with more and more record labels and bands to get the word out on new stuff and making friendships with all kinds of people involved in the scene, far and wide. Not too shabby I would say and there is a lot more awesome things to come.
