From BFE to PHX

Quirky music fest lands at Cricket

Whiny feminists swayed at Lilith Fair, angsty teens flocked to Lollapalooza, and metalheads banged their brains out at Ozzfest. The latest in a long liine of quirky music festivals, KISS FM’s Phooson 2008 features Rihanna, Fall Out Boy, Katy Perry, Jesse McCartney, Varsity Fanclub, Tokio Hotel, and the (vocally) well-endowed Pussycat Dolls. The concert’s crazy name is a combination of “Phoenix” and “Tucson” – a hat tip to the original location in Pinal County, between the two cities. This year, the organizers got smart and realized no one’s shelling out $25 to $150 to drive out to BFE, so they booked it at Cricket Wireless Pavilion.
