Five Must-See Shows This Week

Yeah, yeah, yeah...we get it Mondays suck (we've read Garfield). But it means the start of a new week, which means a bunch of killer shows in and around Phoenix. And here are a few of the coolest, our top five must-see shows this week.

Monday, August 6: Iron Maiden @ Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion

The old guard might seem a little soft now that metal bands come at us with names such as Pig Destroyer, Decrepit Birth, Lacerated Testicle, and Prostitute Disfigurement (betcha can't tell which of those I just made up).

But their 1970s precursors epitomize the finest elements of the hair metal and the Ozzy Osbourne solo records that directly followed--and all this sandwiched between frequent bursts of their trademark harmonized-thirds guitar leads. Be sure to keep an eye out for Eddie, the hypnotically grotesque skeletal band mascot featured so prominently in the album artwork and stage setups.

Let's just hope he doesn't give those modern bands any ideas. -- Vijith Assa
