Curious what's going on around town this weekend? Need some suggestions as to how to rock, dance, or krump in the Valley of the Sun?

Don't fret: These are our Five Shows to See This Weekend.

Friday, November 16: Sponge @ Joe's Grotto

In the '90s, Detroit rockers Sponge coasted on the favorable post-grunge surf with songs such as "Plowed" and "Molly (Sixteen Candles)" -- and in the process crafted some of the more enduring slogans from that time. (Remember the latter's rueful "Sixteen candles down the drain" or the former's raging "...In a world of human wreckage"?)

The tune "Wax Ecstatic," though, remains a stone-cold alt-rock jam: A heady mix of glam and Stone Temple Pilots-styled rock, the tune justified why Sponge opened for KISS in '96. Several albums for indie labels followed the band's heyday (including 2007's Galore Galore), even though vocalist Vinnie Dombroski is the lone original member left in the band.--Annie Zaleski
