Billed as rocking fun in the Arizona sun, 98KUPD’s BRUFEST presents Sabroso: Craft Beer, Taco & Music Festival powered by Gringo Bandito took place last month at Fear Farm Festival Grounds in Phoenix. Brew Ha Ha Productions and premier music festival production company Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE) partnered with long-running 98KUPD’s UFest for the spiritual successor to that legendary party-vibe, spring festival. With great bands, tacos, Luche Libre wrestling, and of course craft beer tastings. A good time was had by all. A killer lineup of bands led the music action, including The Offspring, Pennywise, Atreyu, All That Remains, Hell or Highwater, and Through Fire.

Comprised of Jordan W from The Ready Set, musical conspirator Cameron Walker, and drummer Jess Bowen of The Summer Set, Nekokat recorded their EP with producer Eric Palmqist (Bad Suns, Night Riots) over five days earlier this spring.

Jordan W commented on his perspective of making music with a new band, after a long touring cycle ended with The Ready Set:

I wanted to be at the beginning of something again that feel fresh and new.. That’s where the idea for the band came from. I tried to make an effort not to pursue sounds of the moment, but to create something that’s distinctly ours in a natural way.”
