Five Great Shows We Saw This Spring

It's coming. College kids are circling the Valley in hand-me-down Corollas; especially eager snowbirds are lying to their friends back home about it being A Dry Heat, even in August; the days are very gradually getting shorter. And big touring acts, who've stayed away from Phoenix all summer, are announcing shows.

Ahead of the fall rush, then, we thought it would be nice to take a look at the year so far. Today, we've got five of the shows that earned rave reviews from our writers this spring; on Monday, we'll be taking a look at some shows that blew us away over the summer.

We want to know yours, too, whether we covered it or not: What are the best shows you've seen so far this year?
