Tonight In Phoenix: Bon Iver, !!!, Cave Singers

For as long as I've been writing for the 'Stache I don't think that there has ever been a time with as many big name acts playing on the same night.

I know there has been some debate on who is going to see who but the moment that I saw that Bon Iver was playing, it pretty much became a no-brainer for me.  And while some might consider Justin Vernon aka Bon Iver "overrated" I could not disagree with them more.  Bon Iver's debut album For Emma, Forever Ago was my hands down favorite album of 2008 and quite possibly my favorite album of all time.  I'm fully expecting a fantastic show tonight at the Mesa Arts Center with Megafaun opening the show. 

The other big show tonight is over at The Rhythm Room with !!!, Cave Singers, Lightning Dust and Indian Jewlery.  It's actually a bit of a bummer that both this show and the Bon Iver show are taking place on the same night as I'd love to see both. 

Portland rockers Portugal. The Man will play at The Clubhouse tonight.

Grab your face paint and your Faygo for the Insane Clown Posse and HedPe at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe tonight.

And if you really want to hurt our feeling and make us never want to talk to you again you can go see Creed at Jobing.com Arena.  You've been warned.
