25 Best Concerts in May in Phoenix

Understandably, many in the Valley are dreading the month ahead. As the weeks roll by, the summertime season will be getting into full swing, everyone you know will start leaving town to escape, and there's soon to be nothing but dreck on television (Game of Thrones nonwithstanding).

It's not all bad news, however, as May does has a few bright spots, particularly for anyone who's into checking live music around town. While it might seem like some spots can grind to a halt in the span between Memorial Day and Labor Day, a few couple of high-profile venues will be making their debut this month, the much-anticipated Valley Bar and The Rebel Lounge. Both will feature some name-worthy acts after opening to the public, some of which we've included in our compilation of the best concerts to see in May.
