Black Carl and Dry River Yacht Club - Crescent Ballroom - 12/20/13

On some weekends, it's a toss-up as to what's the best show in town. The weekend of December 20 was not one of those weekends. Black Carl and Dry River Yacht Club playing their final sets of 2013 was obviously the place to be for Phoenix music aficionados Friday night, when the two biggest bands in town linked up for an early holiday extravaganza in the Valley's best venue, the Crescent Ballroom.

San Diego-based Strat and Mouse opened the show, featuring former members of the band Hyena.
