Top 5 Must-See Phoenix Shows This Weekend
Future Loves Past - Scottsdale Quarter - Saturday, November 2
Scottsdale Quarter is probably not the first place that comes to mind when you think about spotlighting local music, and no area psychologist would blame you for failing that particular Rorschach test. On November 2, though, their free fall concert series brings Future Loves Past out to the shopping center for a full-length outdoor show. Lately of Lushfest, their album-release-party-turned-local-festival, Future Loves Past is actually a remarkably astute choice as far as Scottsdale Quarter crossover potential goes--parts of All The Luscious Plants, their propulsive first album, ramp right up into Duran Duran territory, with a steady beat undergirding big vocals and memorable, borderline-slinky melodies.
If you're not the Scottsdale Quarter type all the Audis and BMWs you'll be parking alongside might make you a little nervous, but I wouldn't worry about it; last time we interviewed Future Loves Past, they told us they weren't touring as much as they'd like to because none of them owned a car. Provided they can get all the way out to Scottsdale and Hayden, now would probably be as good a time as any to seek out a Wealthy Benefactor.
