Top Five Must-See Phoenix Shows This Week

Page 3 of 5

Edwin McCain - MIM Music Theater - Wednesday, September 25

Look at it this way: I actually must see this week's Edwin McCain show. Literally, not figuratively--my girlfriend requires it of me. Apparently any girl who went to high school between 1998 and maybe 2004 had every important life experience mental-soundtracked by his super-superhit "I'll Be."

I wasn't aware of it--I didn't talk to a lot of girls in high school, and I definitely inspired no "I'll Be"--but now that he's coming through town I've been told that it's my job, as a responsible boyfriend, to take her to see it and drown out all the original high school associations. I'm not sure I'll be able to manage it, but I'm up for the challenge.
