About Jesse Valencia?

Jesse's band Gorky, which is headlining this Labor Day weekend's 'Rap and Roll' event at the Black Bull, was included in Phoenix New Times' list of Best Music Videos 2015 and nominated for Best Music Video at Phoenix Comicon 2016 for their 2015 music video 'Super Drunk.'

Jesse recently composed score for the film 'Don't Come Around Here,' which recently won best film at the Oxford Film Festival in Mississippi.

Jesse next will star in 'Bride of Violence,' an independent horror film from the director of both 'Super Drunk' and 'Durant's Never Closes,' Travis Mills of Running Wild Films.

Currently, Gorky is working on their 5th record as Jesse prepares to release his forthcoming book on the infamous psychedelic rock band The Brian Jonestown Massacre, for which he interviewed over 150 people over a course of 7 years. Recently, the book was signed to Portland, Oregon-based publisher University of Hell Press.

Jesse is a pop culture journalist and writes primarily for The Big Smoke, which has a media presence in both The United States and Australia. Most recently, he interviewed Twin Peaks' and Z Nation actor Jeremy Lindholm. A week after the interview, Lindholm was charged with 2nd-degree attempted murder of his girlfriend in Spokane, Washington.
