Top 10 February Metal Shows in Metro Phoenix

It can be easy to miss unless you're looking for it, but there are a lot of metal (heavy or otherwise) in and around Metro Phoenix, thanks to concerts and gigs by locals and touring acts alike. As such, Up on the Sun's resident metal scribe Lauren Wise is always on the lookout for the best upcoming shows to come through town.

That's why we had her compile a monthly list of the 10 best metal shows that will be staged at venues around the Valley during the month of February. Each is worth checking out, especially if you're into local metal.
