Top Five Must-See Phoenix Shows This Weekend
Grandest Night of the Season - Rogue Bar, Scottsdale - Saturday, August 24
Sundressed, Diners, Green Line Operator, and Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold are among the well-regarded local acts performing Saturday at the Rogue Bar, but the headline fact of The Grandest Night of The Season is just who's benefiting: Dan Somers, Lisa Savidge's lead singer, who died in June. All proceeds from the event, which starts just after noon at the Rogue Bar and runs past midnight, will go to Somers' final expenses, as well as to assist veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, a cause his death has helped bring to public attention across the country.
The bill, which runs 14 deep at last count, is filled with bands that Somers worked with, enjoyed, or just befriended during his time on the Phoenix music scene. If you can't get to Scottsdale that day, donations are being accepted for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors as well as Team Rubicon.
