There's a little bit of everything this weekend, including a band called 40lb Vagina. Seemingly all the local bands you're used to seeing playing around town are up at the Apache Lake Music Festival. There is a three-day R&B and smooth jazz festival, the Arizona Jazz Festival. And there is also a giant metal show that will be taking over the parking lot near Cityscape between Jefferson and Washington.

Basically, if you find yourself alone on your couch this weekend, the problem isn't a lack of things to do.

Sondre Lerche is scheduled to perform at the MIM on Saturday, October 4.
Got any plans this weekend? You probably should, considering there are few (if any) reasons to stay glued to the furniture at home. The weather's certainly nicer, with nary any storm fronts scheduled to move through Metro Phoenix, and there's no shortage of live music or nightlife events over the next 72 hours.

Setting aside all the performers at you can check out at tonight's First Friday, the Phoenix Ska/Punk Bowling fest will be taking place, gloomy goth/darkwave night HÄXAN is celebrating its first birthday, and there are a pair of beer-oriented festivals in the East Valley (Tour De Fat and the SanTan Brewing Oktoberfest) that each feature well-known acts. We even have a big event planned for Saturday -- namely, the annual Best of Phoenix A'fare -- that will include live music.

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.
