From everything we've heard, seen, or read over the past few days, the first weekend of Coachella apparently went off quite fantastically (unless you happened to be in Outkast). And if you're weren't able to be at the polo grounds in Indio, well...that certainly is a bummer.

The good news is that there's still the second weekend at Coachella coming up, if you happen to have the means to attend, however. If you don't, we've got plenty of coverage on tap. Plus, there's the fact that several high-profile bands and acts will be performing here in Phoenix in the days ahead, including several of the artist on our list of top concerts to see this week.

Lana Del Rey - Tuesday, April 15 - Comerica Theatre

Don't hate Lana Del Rey because she's beautiful. The American singer formerly known as Lizzy Grant may seem to have it all -- she has drop-dead good looks, appeared on Saturday Night Live, is a heartthrob for indie boys everywhere, and released a lavishly lush breakthrough major-label album, Born to Die -- but it's as if the fates want to punish her for all of her recent fortune.

The album's title reveals that there's a lot more going on with Del Rey than simple, escapist mainstream pop, and a river of sadness runs inexorably through tragic-romantic tunes like "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans." The Lake Placid, New York, native exudes plenty of natural star power, but haters like Juliette Lewis (of all people) have dissed Del Rey for not commanding the stage with enough authority in her live appearances. We suspect they'll be eating their words, and eating from her hands, long before her career is over. -- Falling James

How in the fuck does Motorhead not make this list? What we witnessed tonight might possibly be their last ever appearance in AZ

I saw a super awesome show last Thursday at Club Red. Tesseract, Intronaut, Cloudkicker and Animus Complex. None of the shows listed could top that show.
