In summertime, when we put together this list of best shows to see in Phoenix on any given weekend, we don't have very many options. It can be slim pickings for live music around here when it hits triple digits. Not this week. There are more concerts than you could possibly hope to see this weekend, and many of them are good. So consider the following seven shows the cream of the crop, and the following as honorable mentions: The Game/E-40 at Celebrity Theatre, ETC!ETC! at the Pressroom, Motley Crue and Alice Cooper at Ak-Chin Pavilion, Flotsam and Jetsam at Club Red, Brubek Brothers at the Musical Instrument Museum Theater, and Burning Palms/Freaks of Nature/Cherie Cherie at Lost Leaf.
