Top 5 Must-See Phoenix Concerts This Weekend
Hear that? It's the clock counting down the hours until your weekend begins and it's nearing the magic moment known as quitting time. To help the time pass more quickly, you might consider what it is you'll actually be doing during the next couple days and nights of work-free bliss.
Courtesy Photo St. Madness is scheduled to perform on Friday at Joe's Grotto during Mosh Pit Army's sixth anniversary party.
Luckily, if you're in the mood to get in a live show or two, there are more than a few options to choose from over the next 72 hours (eyeball our extensive online concert calendar for proof of such). And then there are our choices for the must-see shows this weekend.
We Still Believe - Friday, February 21 - Location TBA
The members of Rebel Disco are being tight-lipped about their newest hangout. After years of slinging beats at such Phoenix nightspots as Bar Smith and Club 24, the tastemaking local DJ collective has a new joint in town, which will make its debut Friday, February 21, during the We Still Believe shindig. Though they haven't dropped dime on its location just yet, however, they've ecstatically announced the party's headliner and inspiration The Black Madonna on Rebel Disco's Facebook. "We are excited about our new venue and even more excited about our special guest," the post stated.
Such anticipation is warranted, given that the Chicago-based artist (also known by such monikers as the "Avenger of Comiskey Park" and "Patron Saint of Abandoned Daughters") is one of the more unique DJ/producers to come from the Windy City in recent memory. A resident at Chi-Town's trendy Smart Bar, The Black Madonna's intoxicatingly synthy and sample-heavy sounds (which trip between the realms of nu-disco, old-fashioned disco, and soulful house) have been released on such influential labels as Home Taping Is Killing Music and Classic Music Company. If you're down to attend the affair, which runs from 10 p.m. until 3 a.m. and will also feature the Rebel Disco DJs, RSVP online at www.facebook.com/rebeldisco. -- Benjamin Leatherman
