Global Dance Festival

Tempe Beach Park : 5:00 p.m. November 21

Downtown Tempe is in no danger of running low on electronic dance music or off-the-chain dance parties anytime soon, what with the clubs of Mill Avenue pumping out four-on-the-floor jams and killer drops most nights. The clamor of beats and bass coming from Tempe is going to get even louder... More >>

Tempe EDM

C.A.S.A. Music Festival Block Party

C.A.S.A. Sunbá : 7:00 p.m. November 21

So the Tempe music scene is dying, you say? Think again. Granted, it’s gone through a major upheaval in the last two years as beloved rock bars have either moved (Club Red, Big Fish Pub) or closed outright (Sail Inn, Long Wong’s, Parliament), but its still alive and kicking at both... More >>

Tempe Indie Rock

Frontier Ruckus

Last Exit Live : 9:00 p.m. November 21

Frontier Ruckus performs with a fresh-faced, thrilled-to-be-there glow, though they’re hardly a rookie act: the Detroit folk group has released three studio albums since 2008, and is preparing to launch a fourth, appropriately titled 4th LP, in November. Effervescent and sweetly sincere,... More >>

Central Phoenix Indie Rock

DJ Qbert

Club Red : 7:00 p.m. November 22

A true turntablist in every sense of the word, Qbert began spinning vinyl on a Fisher-Price record player at 15 and has been on an epic trajectory that's taken him to the heights of the DJ world. His accomplishments are the stuff of legend: Qbert not only partnered with the equally esteemeed... More >>

Mesa DJ

Shooda Shook It

Trunk Space : 7:30 p.m. November 22

Tucson’s Shooda Shook It are, well, a little weird. But the relatively new group is that kind of weird that is both an entertaining spectacle, while also laying down some solid funky dance music. Fronted by twins Kee Kopps and Dawn Copps, the group has only been playing live for a couple... More >>

Central Phoenix Indie Rock

Hot Buttered Rum

Crescent Ballroom : 8:00 p.m. November 22

It’s official! Hot Buttered Rum, the five-piece bluegrass band from San Francisco (of all places!), is now more popular than the après ski cocktail of the same name. At least, the group finally shows up above the drink in Google searches. We’ve arrived! guitarist Nat Keefe... More >>

Central Phoenix Rock, Prog, Folk, Bluegrass

The 1975

Comerica Theatre : 8:00 p.m. November 22

With a name that practically screams retro, the 1975 is basically a pop band that gussies things up with ambient, electronic and indie-rock influences. Granted, Matthew Healy and crew do a fine job mingling seemingly disparate influences into a contemporary sound, but one has to wonder about... More >>

Central Phoenix Rock

Todd Rundgren

Showroom at Talking Stick Resort : 8:00 p.m. November 22

Todd Rundgren's breakthrough album, Something/Anything?, was a winding double-LP on which he wrote, produced, and performed nearly everything himself. That says a lot about 1972, but it says even more about Rundgren, who's been seen as something of a pop-rock prodigy ever since. If it seems... More >>

North Scottsdale Rock


Pub Rock : 8:00 p.m. November 23

In 2014, the world is a weird place. Grown men want to become living dolls, Shia LaBeouf is very sorry, and bands have to spell their names with v’s so they can be found on Google. Like Chvrches, Wolvves and others before them, Alvvays (duh, the two v’s are a ‘w’) wants... More >>

South Scottsdale Indie Rock

DJ Tricky T

Lost Leaf : 9:00 p.m. November 23

Tricky T is way old school. Back in the day (specifically, the late '90s) he was a handpicked protégé of the renowned Z-Trip and worked the wheels of steel alongside his mentor at such bygone venues as Tempe's Green Room and the old Nita's Hideaway. He was also a big part of the... More >>

Central Phoenix DJ

Vance Joy

Marquee Theatre : 8:00 p.m. November 24

Sometimes it can feel like an artist out of nowhere jumps onto the music scene, and with Australian singer Vance Joy, it certainly seemed so, but behind that quick success was a lot of hard work. “From my perspective, I feel like I've been chipping away at it for a while now. It may... More >>

Tempe Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Indie Rock, Folk, Alternative

Melanie Martinez

Crescent Ballroom : 8:00 p.m. November 24

Ultra cute megababe Melanie Martinez will breeze through Pub Rock in Scottsdale on November 24, an anticipated live music event for her legions of fan-dolls. Many were introduced to Martinez on Season 3 of The Voice, where she did pretty well, making it to the top six round, thanks to her... More >>

Central Phoenix Rock, Indie Pop, Alternative


Club Red : 6:00 p.m. November 25

When thrash bands started speeding up heavy metal in the early 1980s, it was principally American acts (notably Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth) that popularized this reckless assault on a previously most Anglo of genres. Visionary black metallers Venom aside, one of Britain’s few... More >>

Mesa Hard Rock

Big Sandy and His Fly Rite Boys

Rhythm Room : 8:00 p.m. November 26

Big Sandy -- and he is a big guy, but all together affable -- and his band are something of the missing link between classic country and rockabilly; pulling together the '40s to the '60s. Their sound encompasses everything from Hank Williams to Buck Owens, Buddy Holly to Elvis, Roy Orbison to... More >>

Central Phoenix Roots

Chrissie Hynde

Ikeda Theater at Mesa Arts Center : 8:00 p.m. November 26

Chrissie Hynde is so defined by her 30-plus years of work in the Pretenders that it took into her sixties to make an album under her own name. That is this summer's Stockholm, technically a solo album but in reality a close collaboration with Bjorn Yttling of Swedish indie-pop swells Peter,... More >>

Mesa Rock

Red Monkey "Work That Turkey"

The Monarch Theatre : 9:00 p.m. - 3:00 a.m. November 27

Thanksgiving is a time for traditions both good and bad, whether it involves gathering at Grandmama's house for the annual government-sanctioned gorge on mashed potatoes and stuffing or tolerating your creepy uncle's yearly onslaught of awful jokes. Meanwhile, local house music godfather Pete... More >>

Central Phoenix DJ

Meat Puppets

Crescent Ballroom : 8:30 p.m. November 28

Among the handful of American post-punk bands that helped shape Generation-X alternative rock, locally grown heroes Meat Puppets mingled hardcore punk, desert psychedelia and honky-tonk to arrive at a most unique formula. Kirkwood brothers Curt and Cris have been through hell and back since... More >>

Central Phoenix Rock

602's feat. 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 >>

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

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 >>

Central Phoenix DJ

Surrender Thursdays

Element 14 (formerly EDM Phoenix) : 9:00 p.m. every Thu.

Sean Watson will be quite busy this coming weekend. Besides his regular gig at Bar Smith's Big Fun Fridays and performances at both locations of Los Dias De Las Crescent on Saturday, the affable and popular indie DJ will be launching his new weekly dance party Surrender Thursdays at newly...
