This week in Phoenix/Tempe shows

It’s not going out on a limb to say this week of shows in the Valley might go down as one of the busiest/best. Sadly, work won’t allow me to attend just about all of them (but we did hit the San Diego Street Scene this past weekend, and that was a blast).

Check out the schedule of shows this week (already missed Beck/MGMT on Monday night):

TUESDAY

My Morning Jacket at Marquee Theatre.
The New Year at Modified.
Hot Chip/Vampire Weekend at Rialto Theatre in Tucson.

WEDNESDAY
Vampire Weekend at Marquee Theatre.
Sera Cahoone at Modified.

THURSDAY
Okkervil River with Sea Wolf at the Clubhouse.
Tilly and the Wall at the Rhythm Room.
Fake Problems with Cobra Skulls and Frank Turner (the reason I’d go) at Modified.

FRIDAY
Dear and the Headlights CD-release party at the Clubhouse.

SATURDAY
Edgefest 2008 with Airborne Toxic Event, Atmosphere, the Kooks and more at Schnepf Farms.

MONDAY
Ra Ra Riot with Walter Meego and the Morning Benders at Modified.

ALSO:
You can check out a couple stories I wrote that were published last week at The Arizona Republic’s Web site. The first was on famous pizza chef Chris Bianco designing a T-shirt logo for local band Kinch. The other was a preview of Saturday’s Go Vote show with Calexico and Jim Adkins (more on that soon).
