Phoenix New Times
What’s on tap for metro Phoenix’s concert scene this weekend? An eclectic mix of music ranging from funk-driven '70s-style rock to hedonistic punk-rap and folk-influenced tunes, that’s what. The slate of artists coming to Valley music venues from Friday, September 30, to Sunday, October 2, includes songstresses like St. Vincent and Suzanne Vega, Canadian garage rock duo The King Khan & BBQ Show, guitar god Steve Vai, and hip-hop group $uicideboy$. Local all-female punk band Burning Bush will also stage a reunion show at The Rhythm Room while the masked metalheads of Slipknot will return to Ak-Chin Pavilion (and hopefully their fans won’t set fire to the place this time).
