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

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

Friday, December 21: Black Bottom Lighters @ Martini Ranch

In an age when musicians everywhere are trying to figure out how to make some money - almost any amount of money without resorting to Kickstarter "we can have money, plz?" pleading, teaming up with a bigger entity makes sense.

Of course, it's got to make sense. Bob Dylan repping Victoria's Secret might strike an odd chord, but Lil Wayne shilling for Mountain Dew (#Dewnation) makes perfect sense. Ditto for Glendale's Black Bottom Lighters teaming with the Arizona Cannabis Society to funding the recording of the band's debut self-titled EP. Clearly, these guys know synergy when they see (smoke) it.

The reggae rockers continue to tie in relevant content to their audience. The band's high budget video for "Nuclear" plays out like a mini movie, a tale of lust-gone-wrong that ends in a Tarantino shootout (and features a porny cameo from KWSS radio presenter and band friend Beef Vegan).

The band releases its debut EP tonight at Martini Ranch, with like minded rockers Catfish Mustache, Valley Love, The Rootrees, Makai Souljahz, Mob vs. Ballot Box, presented by KWSS' The Morning Infidelity. --Jason P. Woodbury
