Soothsayers have been predicting the end of the world since the dawn of time and we’re still here. It’s an entirely different matter, though, when the government sounds the alarm and tells us that even duck-and-covering can’t save us as in Binary Theatre Company’s latest... More >>

Arizona Rattlers vs. Pittsburg Power

US Airways Center : 6:00 p.m. April 19

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 >>

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.

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.

“When and How the Oscars Became Big Business”

Phoenix Art Museum : 7:00 p.m. April 23

All in all, award shows are fairly predictable. Winners cry, losers, clap, and hosts drag the audience on through it.
