Steve Vai makes rare Arizona appearance BY CHRISTINA FUOCO-KARASINSKI
Calling from a tour stop in Italy, Steve Vai sounds anything but jetlagged. He’s enthusiastic about returning to the United States and especially about his gig at Wild Horse Pass’ Ovations Live! Showroom on Sun., Oct. 20. “I’m very excited,” says Vai, who lives in California. “I really enjoyed touring Europe. I toured a lot internationally in the past year and a half. But, touring America is a great vibe. There’s something simple about it. There’s a charm to it. It’s easy. There’s something about getting off the bus in some Podunk town in the Midwest and riding my bicycle around where people live.” The instrumental progressive rock guitarist, who released his latest album “The Story of Light” on Aug. 14, 2012, hasn’t performed in The Grand Canyon State in some time. “That’s why I decided to book another American tour on the same record,” he says. “I toured two months last year on ‘The Story of Light,’ which is my new record. There were a lot of places I didn’t get to, like Arizona, Texas, Colorado, California, the Midwest. Shows are always great in Arizona. Southern-type states have a more riled-up crowd.” The Grammy Award-winning guitar virtuoso has been hailed as one of the top guitarists in the world. His performances with Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth and many others have established Vai as a force in the music industry. He has sold more than15 million albums worldwide and his songs have appeared in movies, ﬁlm and television shows. Vai’s “The Story of Light” is a concept album that is “a little esoteric with some humor in it.” “I wanted to express the story over a long period of time over various records, so I came up with the idea of releasing these three records that have installments of songs that are depictive of characters and events, but
not necessarily in the correct order. “Then, eventually in the future, release those three records plus another one with the songs in the correct order, with lyrics instead of melodies, with a whole record’s worth of narrative. So, when you sit down and listen to it, it’s a total experience from beginning to end.” That “experience” doesn’t end with the album or the concert. Vai is offering the EVO Experience Package, which includes meet and greet, Q&A session, sound check experience, exclusive tour laminate, print of handwritten score, autographed photo, Vai guitar picks, sticker and a Vai/DiMarzio Guitar Strap. “I like talking to the fans,” Vai says. “Our EVO Experience, is an intimate setting, with just me and however many people are there. Sometimes it’s four to ﬁve; sometimes it’s 60. I answer questions and I talk and it’s very intimate and personal. It usually lasts at least an hour. They get a bag ﬁlled with all sort s of unique swag. They get to come to a soundcheck. Our soundchecks are usually pretty long.” The shows are nothing to sneeze at, either. For his setlist, Vai is featuring a handful of new songs, fan favorites and deep tracks. “The songs are chosen for their dynamic contribution to the show,” Vai says. “I pace the show so there’s different sections and dynamics so it retains people’s attention. What you get to see is great musicianship. It’s different than what most people might expect. It’s difﬁcult for me to explain it because I’m the artist. I’m trying to sell myself. The best thing I can tell you I would encourage people to go to Google, search for Steve Vai concert reviews, go to Ticketmaster’s concert reviews and read reviews from people who have been to the shows. “You’ll be surprised. One of the reasons why I’m doing this tour again is because the response is

embarrassingly good—the reviews that is. That’s the best place to get an idea of what the show’s like.” Steve Vai performs at 8 p.m. Sun., Oct. 20, at Wild Horse Pass’ Ovations Live! Showroom, 5040 Wild Horse Pass, Chandler. Tickets are $35 to $65. For more information, call 1-800-946-4452 or visit wingilariver. com/index.php/wild-horse-pass/entertainment-events.

Shows are at 9 p.m. and midnight, and tickets are just $5. “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” features a performance by Tim Curry as a bizarre and self-proclaimed “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania,” and Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick as Brad and Janet, a couple who ﬁnd themselves lost on a cold, rainy night. The musical pandemonium begins when the couple takes refuge in the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter as he is about to reveal his greatest creation, as well as have fun with his reluctant guests. The screening will be embellished with live audience participation from the Valley’s premiere “Rocky Horror” specialist troupe, Broadway Bound & Gagged (formerly Midnight Mayhem/Come As You Are), who have reclaimed their original name and are ready to bring the show to new and greater heights. The troupe also will perform at screenings set for 11 p.m. Fri., Oct. 25 at AMC Mesa Grand, 1645 S. Stapley Dr.; and

Stories told through quilted works
Dance to Chicago-style jazz
More than 50 hand-quilted, printed, hand-embellished and picturesque art quilts will be on exhibition in ARTrageous: Art Quilts Year XVIII, which runs Nov. 1 through Jan. 18 at the Chandler Center for the Arts Gallery, 250 N. Arizona Ave., in downtown Chandler. A reception for artists will take place 6 to 8 p.m. Fri., Nov. 1. It is free and open to the public. All artworks are accompanied by a story and artist biography. The artworks were selected based on the 2013 juror’s theme, “ARTrageous,” encouraging textile artists to step outside of the box in some context, reﬂecting a twist on the traditional, an interesting technique that was unique to their work, or simply something that was extremely bold. Juror Laurie Fagen of Fagen Designs is an award-winning ﬁber artist who “paints with fabric” to design and create original contemporary wall art and wearable art, which includes metal and polymer clay jewelry. She is the publisher emeritus of the SanTan Sun News. Fagen says ARTrageous takes artists out of their comfort zones into a place that’s “exciting and unfamiliar.” “There were so many fabulous entries, from regulars as well as from amazing new artists who have never shown at the Chandler Center for the Arts,” Fagen explains. “We have selected what I know will be an exciting and cohesive ﬁber show.” Works by the following artists are included in the exhibit: Susan Big, Sandra
