New Mexico rockers The Big Spank return to Cottonwood Main Stage


The Big Spank has been performing across the Southwest since 1998, living a self-described “gypsy-lifestyle” in a converted school bus and touring full time, spreading their love in the form of feel-good tunes that “beg, borrow, and steal” from ska, rock, soul, R&B, hip hop, death metal, polka, Norteño and other genres.

August 10, sees the return of Albuquerque’s The Big Spank. Based in New Mexico, The Big Spank composes and performs with an original musical style that can be loosely described as “Funky-Latin-Punkish-Ska-Pop.”

The band has been performing across the Southwest since 1998, living a self-described “gypsy-lifestyle” in a converted school bus and touring full time, spreading their love in the form of feel-good tunes that “beg, borrow, and steal” from ska, rock, soul, R&B, hip hop, death metal, polka, Norteño and other genres.

The band is becoming well-known in the Southwest for their stage antics and high-energy live performances.  The band will be joined by San Diego’s electronic Latin dance band Tesque Revolt and local favorite DJ Nick J. 

The show is $5 with doors at 8pm and the music beginning at 9 p.m.

Saturday, August 11, has a “birthday bash like no other” with “The Plus Sized Barbie Drag Show and Male Revue.” 

The evening is a birthday celebration for Arizona legend, Aimee V Justice. Always a crowd favorite, the evening presents a host of drag queens, sexy male dancers, laughs, and great times. 

The entertainment begins at 9 p.m. There is a $5 cover at the door.
