Incoming: Joyce Manor, Matt & Kim, Gruff Rhys, Michelle Shocked, Man Man


Their live shows, however, are where the band makes their reputation. They coordinate their clothes -- usually all white -- and pretty much just have at it onstage. Nothing is out of bounds and seemingly everything tends to happen. Luckily for the Phoenix crowd, Man Man are set to release their fourth album Life Fantastic the day of their May 10 show.

Joining Man Man with just announced shows of their own are Joyce Manor, Matt & Kim, Gruff Rhys and Michelle Shocked.
