Tonight is a huge night for Phoenix shows. Not only are !!! and The Cave Singers combining their shows at Rhythm Room, Bon Iver is nearly sold out at Mesa Arts Center, Creed is selling $10 tickets at Jobing.com and Insane Clown Posse is coming to Marquee Theatre.
For me there's no real question which show to see. Not only do I consider Bon Iver to be one of the most overrated acts of the past decade, I've got a soft spot for Clown Love.
Readers may remember my defense of The Juggalos in a column last year, the slideshow where I turned myself in to a Juggalo and the video we did of me trying to get kicked out of a mall with the Juggalos. I'm not sure I'd commit a Friday night to this sort of spectacle, but it sounds like a pretty great Tuesday to me.
