Something Like Appropriate is a Punk-Rock band from Tucson, Arizona; a quiet, under lubricated yet surprisingly satisfying metropolis in the desert. Step forward, Something Like Appropriate. The band formed in 2017 after Zach, Jason and John decided they wanted to recapture a sound and energy that was prevalent in their formative years, but that they felt was lacking in the modern Pop Music landscape.

By combining drums fast enough to spank the pants off a perfectly undeserving stranger, bass so grizzly it could claw your boyfriend’s beard back to its prepubescent waking, and guitars, that, well (honestly they just sound like guitars), SLA is able to showcase a sound and attitude that can provoke that helplessly beaten and repressed spirit of yours to aggressively reawaken with a “cured ED” type vengeance!

Now, without further ado, please, spread your ear holes wide, turn up your listening apparatus to a comfortably numbing volume, and with brisk intention, go SLA yourselves!!


Bold as Love was a classic rock/Blues cover band. We played all over tucson from bars and restaurants to festivals such as Nam Jam and 2nd Saturdays.

Spanning 11 years, 12 MOI played every Sunday at Our saviors Lutheran church. With that span of time, many member changes occurred always including the best of lead guitars.
