Curious what's going on around town this weekend? Need some suggestions as to how to rock, dance, or krump in the Valley of the Sun?
Don't fret: These are our Five Shows to See This Weekend.
It's not every father that gets to share a stage with his son on Father's Day, but that's exactly what will happen when Meat Puppet and former Phoenix resident Curt Kirkwood performs with son Elmo Sunday at the Musical Instrument Museum.
"I thought it was a good idea," the elder Kirkwood says by phone from his home in Austin, about being contacted by MIM for the special gig. "I love playing with Elmo. It's a good opportunity to ditch the band, which we haven't done in a while."
True, Kirkwood's been busy touring -- sometimes with Elmo on second guitar -- behind the Meat Puppets' 2011 release, Lollipop. Now he's ready for a break and a chance for a more intimate father/son experience. -- Glenn BurnSilver (Read more about Curt Kirkwood and Elmo Kirkwood.)
