Top Five Must-See Shows in Phoenix This Weekend

Friday, January 11: Whisperlights @ Yucca Tap Room

It's almost hard to characterize The Whisperlights as a local band, with members of the eight-piece group living in Phoenix and on both coasts. The band makes it work, utilizing a smaller lineup for Valley gigs while touring with the full band.

A true product of the digital age, The Whisperlights' songs are written through long e-mail exchanges, a process sure to come in handy as its members jet off to Bangladesh and Palestine.

"We have an affinity for the city even if we're not going to live here anymore. It's where we found each other. It's where we formed. It all makes sense," says drummer Wasef El-Kharouf. The bands latest record, Surfaces, an upbeat, guitar-driven effort that demonstrates the band's world-minded scope. Some of the songs aren't even in English. -- Melissa Fossum
