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.

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 (check out our extensive online concert calendar for proof of such). In the meantime, here are five of the best concerts in Metro Phoenix this weekend.

VagFest - Friday, May 2, and Saturday, May 3 - Yucca Tap Room

It's no longer about women in rock; it's just about women making good rock. Oh, and having a damn good time doing it. It's one of the reasons the annual VagFest not only has survived five years but keeps getting bigger and better each time out, with the 2014 version bringing in up-and-coming national acts Bleeding Rainbow and White Murder to headline the two-night, two-venue event.

More than 20 bands, solo acts, and DJs --including headliners Bleeding Rainbow and White Murder -- will take the stage at Yucca Tap Room and neighboring all-ages venue 51 West in Tempe. Cruz also is trying something new for VagFest this year -- a marketplace set up inside 51 West that showcases zines, records, and the work of local visual artists and photographers. --Melissa Fossum
