Huun-Huur-Tu

Musical Instrument Museum Music Theater : 7:00 p.m. April 16

What exactly does throat singing sound like? Think of a swarming mass of Africanized bees buzzing inside a long narrow pipe, a deep baritone rumble ebbing and flowing in relation to the opening. That’s kinda close. The singing — technically the sound’s created by the singer... More >>

North Phoenix World, Vocal, Folk

Cameron Carpenter

Piper Repertory Theater at Mesa Arts Center : 7:30 p.m. April 16

As the only organist ever nominated for a solo album Grammy, Cameron Carpenter is the poster child for smashing-preconceived-notions-to-bits. Often referred to as the "rockstar of the organ" (sounds saucy!), Carpenter takes an ancient behemoth of an instrument and transforms it into a wild,... More >>

Mesa Piano, Classical

Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls

The Pressroom : 8:00 p.m. April 16

The folk-punk alchemist Frank Turner is another U.K. act who claims huge stardom in his homeland but is relatively anonymous stateside. In England, he performed at the 2012 London Olympics' opening ceremony and headlined a sold-out Wembley arena with support from his backing band, the Sleeping... More >>

Central Phoenix Folk

Lorde

Comerica Theatre : 7:00 p.m. April 17

Lorde knew exactly what she was doing when she named her debut album Pure Heroine, the sort of pun that conflates Katniss Everdeen (the movie version) at her most plucky with Kate Moss at her most chic and maybe Courtney Love at her most shameless. The precocious Kiwi chanteuse has cultivated... More >>

Central Phoenix Indie Pop, Electro

Classixx

The Monarch Theatre : 9:00 p.m. April 17

If you Google "Oak Park Music," the first result is "the Wedding Music DJs." The Southern California bedroom suburb of 14,000 is wedged between Malibu and Agoura. There are no large clubs or live music venues. It's the least likely place to have incubated Classixx, L.A.'s best dance-music... More >>

Central Phoenix EDM, DJ

Phantogram

Marquee Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 18

New York duo Phantogram are a revelation, mixing in ecstatic hip hop beats with soft synthesizer and hypnotizing psychedelic pop guitar riffs. Sara Barthel and Josh Carter both provide vocals on their tracks, which anchor all the sounds together with romantic, yet melancholy lyrics. Their... More >>

Tempe Electronica

Pet Shop Boys

Comerica Theatre : 9:00 p.m. April 18

The most interesting aspect of Swedish House Mafia's massive 2012 club hit "Don't You Worry Child" was the tune’s emotionally and spiritually uplifting trajectory, which might have even resembled gospel with the help of enough illicit substances. There's a direct lineage there which... More >>

Central Phoenix Pop

Chromeo

Marquee Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 19

Electrofunk duo Chromeo's Business Casual album of last year sent our little minds to some nasty, sexy nirvana, but then they threw in all these real sincere ballads and shit, too, and it didn't sound like a load of tripe. Montreal jokers P-Thugg on talk-box vocals and Dave 1 on squinky synth... More >>

Tempe Funk, Electro

Nancy Whang

Crescent Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. April 19

Indie diehards cried into their PBRs when Nancy Whang and the other members of LCD Soundsystem went their separate ways in 2011, bringing one of the most lauded and influential dance-punk acts of the Aughts to an unfortunate end. Thing is, Whang probably didn't return the favor and shed any... More >>

Central Phoenix EDM, DJ

Future Islands

Crescent Ballroom : 7:30 p.m. April 20

Heartbroken synth-pop heroes Future Islands' fourth album, Singles, is a document worthy of their high-drama live presence. Single "Seasons (Waiting on You)" shall lead the emotionally raw and unflinching collection into the hearts of America this year. Frontman Samuel T. Herring's outsized... More >>

Bastille

Marquee Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 20

Bastille, like fun., is a band that banks on the enthusiasm of a crowd to propel them through the high point of their performance. Their most lauded singles are sugary, uplifting anthems with nary a minor chord between them that consist of more vowel-heavy utterances than actual words of... More >>

Tinariwen

Musical Instrument Museum Music Theater : 7:00 p.m. April 21

The nomadic Tuareg tribesmen, who sport robes and headscarves onstage, recorded their forthcoming album in the California desert town of Joshua Tree rather than in the politically imploding Sahara. Part trance and part provocation, the band's bluesy sound evokes its West African desert homeland... More >>

Chvrches

Marquee Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 21

Chvrches' ascent to theater-headlining status on distant continents has been giddying. The Scottish trio released its debut single but a year back and only in September did an album, The Bones of What You Believe, appear. The mystery of this career curve is actually pretty straightforward:... More >>

Tempe Electronica

Neutral Milk Hotel

Crescent Ballroom : 8:30 p.m. April 16

Punk pioneer Jonathan Richman looked small on the stage at Crescent Ballroom last December with an acoustic guitar and his drummer, Tommy Larkins. The crowd shouted requests at him in hopes that he would play something by Richman's seminal 1970s band the Modern Lovers. He appeased them by... More >>

602'sfeat. Djentrification

Bikini Lounge : 9:00 p.m. every Tue.

As glass towers and luxury lofts continue rising in downtown Phoenix, there’s been a shindig for the past half-decade that’s truly remained underground. More than five years ago, Bradford and Andy McPants started a modest music night at Bikini Lounge. Today, it’s morphed into... More >>

Tejano Thursdays feat. DJ Stixx

Karamba : 9:00 p.m. every Thu.

Polka, Selena, and vaqueros. One of these three words probably flashes through the brainpans of most folks whenever they happen to hear a two-second flash of Tejano on the radio, usually right before quickly tuning to another station. Had these narrow-minded ninnies bothered to linger a little... More >>

Monday Karaoke

George & Dragon Pub : 9:30 p.m. every Mon.

We love Bill Murray, but his flick Lost in Translation may have given people the impression that karaoke is just for sad sacks’ thinly veiled catharses. Belting out the hits in local bars is, no duh, way fun and you can bless The George & Dragon with your vocal stylings Monday, July... More >>

Central Phoenix Karaoke

Uptown feat. DJ Organic

Rips Ales & Cocktails : 10:00 p.m. every Wed.

Believe it or not, but it looks as though Adam Dumper's been taking a few cues from both Ronald McDonald and Colonel Sanders lately. Over the past year or so, the local artist and impresario, better known as Dumperfoo, has transformed his signature event The Blunt Club into a veritable... More >>

East Phoenix Hip-Hop, DJ

DJ IVO

Lost Leaf : 9:00 p.m. every Tue.

A weeknight night hip-hop party is a bit of an anomaly. Partygoers might expect to see a Biggie-obsessed DJ spining records to a couple of friends while everyone else is preoccupied with their cells, but The Rewind is nothing of the sort. “Its a Saturday night disguised as a... More >>
