Top 5 Must-See Phoenix Shows This Week

Categories: This Week


Murrieta - Crescent Ballroom - Wednesday, January 8

The first of four "Acoustic Wednesdays" scheduled at Crescent this month is Murrieta, who's got an album coming out in February. The Mesa sextet hasn't played since Thanksgiving, and they won't play again until they're celebrating the release of A Head & Hand, which makes this a good time to get accustomed to their back catalog.

The all-acoustic sound will be more of a departure for them than it would your average indie-folk types -- their self-titled EP is decorated throughout with a slippery, singing electric guitar -- but their bouncy Americana, which seems as influenced by The Format as it is the cassette stand at an interstate gas station -- won't suffer from the change of pace. Huckleberry and Owl & Penny will join them Wednesday.
