Top 5 Must-See Phoenix Shows This Christmas Week
Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers - Talking Stick Resort - December 27-28
Roger Clyne's easy-going, laid back personality radiates through his music; at Circus Mexicus, the Peacemakers' annual Rocky Point retreat, it leaves their fans dancing and singing and tipping back drinks on the beach. The energy inside a Peacemakers crowd is loving, peaceful; fans of all ages stand side-by-side and sing along, some dancing with their kids and others waving glow-sticks over their heads.
There will be no beachside soccer tournament when Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers play "Adios 2013," a two-night run at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, but there will be legions of RCPM and Refreshments buffs and the sense of community that comes with them. 15 years have passed since the abrupt end of the Refreshments, but Clyne and company haven't missed a beat--they still possess every ounce of the charisma that took them through the '90s. The way they'll pack their fans in to ring in 2014 at Talking Stick is evidence enough of that. -- Caleb Haley"
