7 Best Concerts to See This Weekend

Got any plans this weekend? You probably should, considering there are few (if any) reasons to stay glued to the furniture at home. The weather's certainly nicer, with nary any storm fronts scheduled to move through Metro Phoenix, and there's no shortage of live music or nightlife events over the next 72 hours.

Setting aside all the performers at you can check out at tonight's First Friday, the Phoenix Ska/Punk Bowling fest will be taking place, gloomy goth/darkwave night HÄXAN is celebrating its first birthday, and there are a pair of beer-oriented festivals in the East Valley (Tour De Fat and the SanTan Brewing Oktoberfest) that each feature well-known acts. We even have a big event planned for Saturday -- namely, the annual Best of Phoenix A'fare -- that will include live music.
