So what about the rest of the rock, punk, and indie heavy-hitters filling out the bill at Mesa Amphitheatre on Saturday? Here's a rundown on the other touring acts that will rock the outdoor venue tomorrow, each offering their own distinct sounds. Consider it a final wrap-up of our week of That Damn Show coverage.
Awolnation singer/songwriter Aaron Bruno cobbles together modern-rock tunes that are candy pop, hard as nails, and cathedral-huge: Aggro refrains choke on wafting choruses and kitchen-sink post-Beck song suites, but somehow it still all feels right. At once wading-pool shallow and mercilessly affecting, the quintet caulk the fault line separating a guilty pleasure from a cultivated muso obsession. His 2011 album Megalithic Symphony suggested that the band could do anything, so expect them to keep breakdancing atop your notions of what popular music should be able to accomplish. -- Raymond Cummings
