Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

By Benjamin Leatherman

The Dirty Heads are scheduled to perform tonight at the Clubhouse Music Venue in Tempe.

It’s been three days since President-elect Barack Obama made his historic ascension to the White House and we’re certain man of you still feel like celebrating (well, at least 44 percent of you do, at any rate). So before y’all get bogged down with worries over who B-Rock is choosing for his cabinet (or the continuously-plunging stock market), why not take in a concert or two this weekend?

For instance, heavy metal legends Iced Earth are gonna be blowing the walls off the Marquee Theatre this evening, while hip-hop icon KRS-One is spits rhymes at the Clubhouse Music Venue tomorrow night, and Insomniac’s Dave Attell will be telling dirty jokes all weekend long at the Tempe Improv.
