Copper & Congress makes the drive from Tucson to play Crescent Ballroom this week.

The Thanksgiving-to-Christmas stretch is always light on concerts, since many touring acts take that month off and many fans choose to stay home and focus on the busy lead-up to the end of the year. While there's not much going on, the shows you do go to will be populated by hardcore music fans, lending a warm, fuzzy sense of community to the proceedings. December shows are fun for that reason, and we recommend you try it at least once. Here are our picks for this week. Check out our comprehensive concert calendar for more options.

Is the sign that there are multiple parties happening on Thanksgiving in Phoenix a sign of a city that has come of age? After all, only quaint small towns really shut down completely on Turkey Day, and if retailers have to work Thursday night, why not the employees of music venues around town?

Here are our picks for the best concerts in Phoenix this week. Enjoy them, browse our comprehensive concert calendar for more options, and have a great Thanksgiving, Phoenix.

Noah Gundersen, when not sitting between pieces of hardwood furniture, makes pretty good music.

Before we go on to the picks for this week, let's reflect on the events of this past weekend.

Phoenix hosted Dias de la Crescent, a massive outdoor festival that walled off Civic Space Park and attracted thousands (one estimate said 3,500) people of all ages and walks of life, and the bands that drew them there? All local. Also, the Tempe History Museum opened a new exhibition, Tempe Sound, on Friday, and on metal legends Slayer came to town on Saturday. It was a great weekend for Phoenix music fans, and hopefully a sign of the continued strength and growing legitimacy of what we have going on here in the Valley of the Sun.

This week is a little less music-heavy, and things will naturally slow a bit as the holidays approach. Still, let's hope there are more great weekends to come. Check out our picks for the week, and browse our comprehensive concert calendar for more options.

We hope you don't have a music hangover from last weekend. The weather was gorgeous, and the music festivals were so plentiful we expect you made like us and saw music every opportunity you had, which was many.

So it'd be understandable if you didn't want to hear any music for a week or two. But if you need some hair of the dog, or were otherwise engaged last weekend, here are our picks for the week. Browse our comprehensive concert listings for more options.

David Bazan is scheduled to perform on Wednesday at Crescent Ballroom.
If nothing else, this week's slate of concerts in and around Metro Phoenix is what you'd call diverse, or, at the very least, eclectic. How else would you describe a five-day span that feature everything from the indie power-pop of The New Pornographers and the Latin-infused trip-hop of French-Chliean emcee Ana Tijoux to the slowcore of David Bazan and the esteemed crooning of country legend Kris Kristopherson.

Oh, and the rowdy-ass members of the Insane Clown Posse are bringing their Faygo-soaked circus to Mesa Amphitheatre our way this week, too. (Consider yourself warned.) Or not, since the show's been canceled.

Yeah, like we said, it's diverse.
