People of the Valley of the Sun, fear not. Yes, you have suffered. Through July, with average high temps of 107 degrees, you have persevered. Through August, much of the same. Then in September, you weathered another type of extreme weather, as rainwater filled up city streets and turned neighborhood streets into swimming pools. But now, as nighttime temperatures tantalizingly dip below 85 degrees, there is relief in site. And with the lowered mercury of the fall comes a slew of much more promising nightlife options. This weekend offers dozens of highlights from today through Sunday, and if you can't find anything to do, you're not looking hard enough. So check out our recommendations, and browse our comprehensive concert calendar for even more options.

Don't be fooled by the naysayers. Those who say Phoenix doesn't have live music options in the summer are either lying or basing their statements off of the dark days before engineers mastered central air conditioning. There's enough music going on this weekend to keep Bomont barn-dancing for years.

Here's a list of runners-up we could have easily picked for this weekend's recommendations: Dark Time Sunshine/Open Mike Eagle at Club Red, Sugar Thieves at Rhythm Room, Japhy's Descent/Ghetto Cowgirl/The Sundowners/Tiptoe Gloryhole at Yucca Tap Room, Air Traffic Controller at Electric Ballroom, Le Butcherettes at Crescent Ballroom, Tedeschi Trucks Band at Talking Stick Casino.

And there are tons more options in our comprehensive concert listings as well.

Instead of bitching about the weather, like we usually do here, let's instead think of reasons why 113-degree temperatures are actually good. After all, if you live in Phoenix during the summer, the world is your sauna, am I right? And to think some folks like to be indoors when they need to have a good sweat. Suckers. And why use your stupid oven to bake cookies when you can just put a baking sheet on your dashboard? And where would the window tinting and black-out curtain industries be without Phoenix summers, I ask you? Nowhere, that's where.

So be thankful for the heat, as it is the source of luxury, food, and commerce.

Most of these concerts take place in venues with air conditioning and cold beer. So check these out, browse our comprehensive concert listings if you would like to see more options, and stay hydrated, Phoenix.

In summertime, when we put together this list of best shows to see in Phoenix on any given weekend, we don't have very many options. It can be slim pickings for live music around here when it hits triple digits. Not this week. There are more concerts than you could possibly hope to see this weekend, and many of them are good. So consider the following seven shows the cream of the crop, and the following as honorable mentions: The Game/E-40 at Celebrity Theatre, ETC!ETC! at the Pressroom, Motley Crue and Alice Cooper at Ak-Chin Pavilion, Flotsam and Jetsam at Club Red, Brubek Brothers at the Musical Instrument Museum Theater, and Burning Palms/Freaks of Nature/Cherie Cherie at Lost Leaf.
