5 Best Concerts to See in Phoenix This Week, 8/4 to 8/7

August has begun, and with it, the countdown to the end of summer. (And there's non-literal meaning to that as well -- the Summer Ends Music Festival, which happens just after fall begins at the end of September in Tempe.) Blessed are the rains down in Phoenix this past weekend, allowing us a brief respite from triple digit highs and upper-90s lows. It's gonna get hot again this week, so distract yourself with these shows and distract yourself from the tough questions in life, such as, "why do people live in the desert?" and "is the existence of Phoenix a testament to man's conquest of nature or a disastrous symbol of man's doomed desire to master it?"
