Over the Weekend: Phoenix Rock Lottery, George Strait, Slapshot, Remezcla PHX, and Stone Sour

So, how was your weekend? Ours was a pretty busy one as we attended a slew of shows, concerts, and gigs around Metro Phoenix, starting off with George's Strait's swan song at US Airways Center on Friday and concluding with White Denim's well-attended performance last night at the Crescent Ballroom. Plus, the Up on the Sun staff also attended the fantastic Phoenix Rock Lottery, Stone Sour's appearance in Tempe, Slapshot's rowdy night at the Yucca Tap, and even Remezcla PHX at the Monarch Theatre.
