    Top Five Must-See Shows This Week in Phoenix

    It's the Monday after the big game, which means you're back at the office, standing around the water cooler listening to your most annoying co-worker recreate his favorite Super Bowl commercial in vivid, poorly-acted detail.

    Stephen Steinbrink Leaves Arizona With a Pop Record About Arizona

    Like nearly everyone in Phoenix, songwriter Stephen Steinbrink (you may recognize his project name French Quarter as well) has a love/hate relationship with the city.
