Top Five Must-See Phoenix Shows This Weekend
Firemen are the real heroes. Or maybe teachers -- I can never remember. In any case, there will be lots of superheroes in town this weekend for Phoenix Comicon. Some of them will even be local musicians.
But if you're looking for a break from the convention -- or just another place to wear your super-accurate Doctor Who costume -- try any one of these five Phoenix shows to see this weekend.

Comikaze - May 25 - Monarch Theatre, Crescent Ballroom
Do you like local music? How about local musicians indulging their inner Comic Book Guy? If you answered yes to one or both of those questions, you might consider taking some time out from your Phoenix Comicon schedule to visit Comikaze, an all-day event split between the Monarch Theatre and Crescent Ballroom that will feature local bands like Fairy Bones, Captain Squeegee, decker., and Sara Robinson and the Midnight Special "[letting] their inner geek out" for Comicon attendees (and loiterers) looking for a break from the convention floor.
