2011 Phoenix Concert Preview

2010 was a great year for live music in Phoenix. I crossed a bunch of bands of my bucket list (I have never seen that movie) like Gorillaz, Snoop Dogg, Slayer, Wu Tang, The National, Vampire Weekend and saw a ton of other great shows. But that was as they say, so last year. It's time to look towards the future. Here is a pretty giant list of everything good that has been announced so far.
