Incoming: Bush, Meat Puppets, Brian Setzer, Puscifer, Starfucker

English rockers Bush, who have always had better luck in the US than in their own home country, are looking to further their success as they sweep through Phoenix in December.

If you've been eagerly awaiting to hear grunge hits like "Glycerine" and yearning to enviously stare at Gavin Rossdale while wishing you were married to Gwen Stefani, then this is the show for you.

Joining Bush with shows of their own are Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot, the Meat Puppets, Puscifer and Starfucker.
