Usually the preamble to these Top Five Must-See Phoenix Shows posts is longer than this, but I spent most of the week sending long letters to venues suggesting that they make inroads into the state fair market by also selling novelty fried foods before and after shows, possibly year-round.

Nobody's gotten back to me. Well, their attorneys have, but not them.

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers at this year's Circus Mexicus.

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers - Memorial Coliseum - Friday, October 18

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers might be a state-fair-appropriate nostalgia act elsewhere, where their actual fanbase would be supplemented by people who remember The Refreshments and think it would be pretty cool if they toured with Superdrag.

In Phoenix, though -- well, it's a little different. The Peacemakers, after all, still have pull enough to put on Circus Mexicus every year down in Puerto Penasco, a vacation-and-festival-and-family-reunion that last year saw a reunion from The Refreshments proper. Tickets are $15 for this 7 p.m. concert.
