Incoming: Buckethead, The Mynabirds, Xiu Xiu

Multi-genre guitarist extraordinaire Buckethead is coming to Phoenix in August to show off his extreme shredding skills. Some of his work is quite lively while some of it is actually kind of soothing. Either way, give him six strings and a chicken bucket and he can do anything.

Buckethead, The Mynabirds, Xiu Xiu, and other artists have us stoked for their upcoming shows.
