Concert Calendar For This Weekend: Bloc Party, Brendan James, The Andre Nickatina Experience, The Aquabats,

Limbeck is scheduled to perform tonight at the Chyro Arts Venue in Scottsdale.

If I was an arrogant, self-centered kind of music journalist, I'd probably spend the next 400 or so words detailing all the cool-ass concerts I was planning to check out this weekend, dishing out details in between clever jokes and erudite observations.

But then again, I'm really not that arrogant, just a little self-centered, and marginally a music journalist (this week's cover story nonwithstanding), so I think I'll just dish the 411 on who's playing where and when around the Valley over the next 48 hours.

As always, click on the links for more ticketing information.
