On Saturday, you're going to have to make some very difficult choices. In one corner: the first That Damn Show in a decade, featuring Bad Religion and an impressive cast of local and touring bands. In another: The Real Coachella, featuring The Real Wu-Tang Clan and The Real Grimes. In another: Record Store Day, featuring in-store performances and deals all over the Valley. And in one more (that's right, these corners actually do make a square): all manner of 4/20 Day festivities, featuring come-on-you-know.

Here to help you make an informed decision: The Top Five Must-See Shows in Phoenix This Weekend.

Saturday, April 20: That Damn Show @ Mesa Amphitheatre, Mesa

The roster of touring acts of That Damn Show gives the festival the appearance of something that happened a decade ago. I remember being stoked to see acts like Bad Religion, Face to Face, and Fenix Tx for the first time in the early Aughts -- and, in some cases, at Mesa Amphitheatre. Wasn't Bad Religion, Less Than Jake and Authority Zero an unlikely but fun show? That Damn Show 2013, with its punk/reggae lineup, seems like the long-awaited sequel. -- Melissa Fossum
