There's not a ton of live music in town this weekend -- especially compared to next weekend's musical bonanza of Country Thunder/Tempe Music Fest/Springsteen/Bonnie Prince Billy/Calexico/Leonard Cohen -- so this week's flier is for a dance night. Not just any Dance night though, as Benjamin Leatherman wrote in this week's paper, Danse Macabre, at The Ruby Room, should be pretty special, with crazy assortment of tracks. The flier ain't bad either.
