The Breeders come to Phoenix this week.

Have you recovered from Mad Decent Block Party? Last weekend, everything musical in Phoenix paused to give space for what is arguably the largest EDM event that will happen this year. This week, the Phoenix music universe has adjusted, compensating for the overabundance of beats and turntables with a slew of radio rock concerts and some New Kids on the Block hangers-on called One Direction. So check out the best shows to see in Phoenix this weekend, and browse our comprehensive concert listings for more options.

It's rainy. Near-record-setting rainfalls smacked Phoenix in the lip last night, as you no doubt heard via the bomb-like thunder circa 4 a.m. today. Highways have flooded, schools have closed, and offices have turned into wastelands. One dramatic consequence of flooding is that people tend to cocoon themselves into their homes and wait out the storm -- depressing small businesses that rely on customers' leaving their houses in order to survive. So if things ease up in the next few nights -- as unlikely as that may look -- don't hesitate to go out and support your local businesses and musicians. It's looking like it's going to be a slow night for everyone playing music tonight; get out there and support your local artists. They'll be eternally grateful. Not to mention any show you see will be way more intimate than any other show you could see. With that said, here are our recommendations for music this week.

Remember when labor unions actually added workers to their rolls? When it wasn't considered "class warfare" for poor people to demand the government enact policies in their economic interests? Yeah, we don't either. Our plans for Labor Day include a healthy dose of pool and beer, and here are some concerts happening throughout the week to distract you from an ever-ossifying caste system of inherited wealth in the good ol' U.S.A.

Happy Labor Day, everybody!

Keep going, y'all -- the end of summer is almost here. And by that, we mean that the officially recognized transition into the season known as the fall will take place in less than a month's time. Anyone who's lived in the Valley longer than five minutes, however, knows that the heat and whatnot is sticking around until probably late October.

At any rate, once the calendar changes over to September and summer officially ceases, that's when the live music calendar really tends to heat up with fantastic acts and gigs. That's not to say there's nothing to see in the interim, however, as there are plenty of performances worthy of your money and time between now and then, including the seven shows we've included in our Monday rundown of great concerts to catch this week.

August has begun, and with it, the countdown to the end of summer. (And there's non-literal meaning to that as well -- the Summer Ends Music Festival, which happens just after fall begins at the end of September in Tempe.) Blessed are the rains down in Phoenix this past weekend, allowing us a brief respite from triple digit highs and upper-90s lows. It's gonna get hot again this week, so distract yourself with these shows and distract yourself from the tough questions in life, such as, "why do people live in the desert?" and "is the existence of Phoenix a testament to man's conquest of nature or a disastrous symbol of man's doomed desire to master it?"
