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.

Another month is on us. The Arizona State Fair has wrapped up, capping off an extremely good concert series with an epic old-school hip-hop show.

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.

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.

Busdriver is scheduled to perform on Monday night at Rhythm Room.
With all due respect to the holiday season, right now is arguably the most wonderful time of the year. We've got the Arizona State Fair and its tremendous concert series launching by week's end, Halloween a few weeks after that, and some great shows to check out until both those things come to pass.

This week will be particularly busy for those with great taste in music (not to mention the means and the money to go to three or four straight days of show) since there will be must-see concerts every night this week. Wednesday is a certainly a big night with Belle & Sebastian at Civic Space Park, Little Dragon at Marquee Theatre, Bishop Allen at Crescent Ballroom, and Pompaloose at Pub Rock.

Perhaps everyone has a music hangover from this past week, because after a week that saw a giant three-day music festival get washed out by the rain and featured performances by heavyweights Katy Perry, Drake, and Lil Wayne, this upcoming is much calmer. But that doesn't mean there aren't musical outlets available this week. Take a look at the calendar and you'll find concerts by Taylor Momsen's The Pretty Reckless, Eagles, and more. Check out our recommendations below, and browse our comprehensive concert calendar for a complete list.

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.
