Top Five Must-See Phoenix Shows This Week

Page 2 of 5

Cover the Crescent - Crescent Ballroom - May 14

Crescent Ballroom's "Cover the Crescent" event, in which local bands cover their favorites, returns for a punk edition headlined by NOFX, recently departed That Damn Show headliners Bad Religion, Propagandhi, and Hot Water Music -- as played by members of Fivespeed, Authority Zero, Helva, No Longer Together, Dead Eyes of London, Last Action Zeros, Keep Away, and Sun Ghost.

Tickets sales go to benefit the School of Rock fund, but if you're not a NOFX guy, this actually isn't your only chance this week to see a cover show at the Crescent. Day 2 of this year's Los Dias De La Crescent -- read more about it and see the full lineup here -- will feature equal parts strange pairings -- like Dry River Yacht Club playing Led Zeppelin -- and instantly plausible ones, like Vial of Sound as New Order.
