Wednesday Concert Calendar: Boys and Frogs, Saddles, Scott Weiland

A couple of interesting shows tonight in Phoenix. As always be sure to check out for a full list of concerts and events taking place tonight.

Who: Scott Weiland
Where: Marquee Theatre
When: 6:30 PM
Cost: $30
Why: Scott Weiland has become a lot more well known for his troubled personal life than his musical achievements. His latest album, Happy In Galoshes, has gotten mediocre reviews and any time I've ever read a concert review where Weiland has performed it has been reported to be kind of a train wreck. Which is pretty much the reason why I'm recommending this show. Personally, I'm not a big fan of Weiland's solo material, but maybe you'll get lucky and he'll play some Stone Temple Pilots songs. If not then it will probably be another huge train wreck. And who doesn't enjoy watching a good train wreck?

What: Awsomefest featuring Saddles and Boys and Frogs
Where: Modified Arts
When: 6:00 PM
Cost: $5
Why: The lineup for this show has me scratching my head in confusion. The acts peforming at this show range from latin hip-hop (Ese Cali) to death metal (Giants Among Us, The Baby Lottery) to indie (Saddles, Boys and Frogs). I'm all for variety but I'm not so sure how well these various styles of music mix. At least it should make for an interesting crowd. I do recommend that you go check out Saddles and Boys and Frogs, both of whom we've mentioned on the blog before and are big fans of.
