Want to know why locals refer to this landmark dive as the "Dirty Verde?" It could be because of all the band stickers and graffiti covering the walls of the men's room, which also features an old-school condom machine. The chain-link fence surrounding the smoking area is another nice touch. Or maybe it's the funky clientele from around the neighborhood who come to start their drinking during the daytime, mixing with a more bohemian evening crowd. The PBR and other cheap booze flow like water here, and a variety of local punk and noise rock bands perform in one corner on the weekend. That's right: There's no stage here.
Former Phoenicians Christopher Rutledge and William Fees may have left for Seattle in 2010, but they've hardly been laying low in the ancestral homeland of grunge. Instead of wrapping up in flannels and mainlining coffee, the stoner metal duo... More »
The men of TwinGiant aren't asking for a lot. They want some beers, and they wanna turn the amps up (way up), and tell a cosmic yarn about "the space hobo," a character they created when imagining a t... More »
Seattle guitarist Bill Horist has been making records since the early '90s, and he's racked up the kind of avant-garde credentials any would-be guitar mangler would kill for. He's worked with John Zor... More »
They don't call it the "Dirty Verde" for nothing. The Palo Verde Lounge in Tempe has earned its reputation as a thoroughly rock 'n' roll watering hole the old-fashioned way: serving up cold domestic beers, not spending too much time mopping the floors, and never catering to the snooty hipster set. The kind of bands that take stage (the floor space directly in front of the arcade machines) are hip, but the kind of hip that understands that the coolest thing anyone or anything can do is not...

The beloved PV has long been known by punkers and other scuzz-rock fans as one of the best rocker-friendly drinking dives in the Valley. And when no-BS owner Chuck unplugs the jukebox, pushes the pool table to the back of the tiny bar, sets up a cheap PA, and starts slinging $2 PBRs, the "Dirty Verde" becomes the next best thing to a rock 'n' roll house party. Packed tight and inches away from the band, fans shake along to the music and hold their beers high, while loud-ass amps rattle their... More »
There's no explanation for a place like the Palo Verde. Dude, this place should be on an episode of Ripley's Believe It or Not. By everyone's admission, even the regulars, the PV is a dive. Outside, the junky brick building looks like it might house a meth lab or a massage parlor. Inside, it's bare bones: a jukebox, two pool tables operating at 50 cents a pop, a couple of electronic games in the back, one old-school Playboy pinball machine, and a seedy little bar area. And yet it draws one... More »
I remember vividly the first time I walked into this bar when i looked down to see a couple loose teeth on the ground. Turns out you can effectively silence a person with a tube sock full of cue balls. no joke! and beers were $2.
