    The season seems pretty typical to me. Tucson's summer schedule is actually better than normal, imo. Usually we get nothing during the summer months in the Old Pueblo.

    So what I'm gathering is that June through August usually is a little slow, compared to the rest of the year (though 2006 I was right on schedule, over it if I were to count Pitchfork)

    But. Really. This is what I have gathered for the time period in the other thread:

    06/02/10 - Melvins @ Clubhouse
    06/05/10 - Miike Snow @ Clubhouse
    06/06/10 - Josiah Wolf (of Why?), Cars and Trains, the Whisperlights @ Trunk Space
    06/07/10 - Mumford & Sons, Middle East @ Rhythm Room
    06/10/10 - Sage Francis, b.dolan @ Clubhouse
    06/13/10 - The Sadies, Lonna Kelley @ Rhythm Room
    06/18/10 - Matt Pond Pa, Wintersleep @ Sail Inn
    06/22/10 - Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, Dawes @ Clubhouse
    06/23/10 - Erykah Badu @ Marquee
    06/23/10 - Grupo Fantasma/Nortec Collective @ Rhythm Room
    06/28/10 - Blitzen Trapper, the Moondoggies @ Clubhouse
    06/28/10 - Damien Jurado @ Rhythm Room
    06/29/10 - Vans Warped Tour @ Cricket Pavillion
    07/10/10 - Kings of Leon, Built To Spill, The Features @ Cricket Pavilion
    07/20/10 - Robert Plant and the Band Of Joy @ Dodge Theate
    07/22/10 - Pinback @ Clubhouse
    08/17/10 - Natalie Merchant @ Dodge Theatre
    08/27/10 - Slayer and Megadeth with Testament @ Dodge Theatre

    and I see one show I might go to.

    I bet there'll be plenty of good local shows, I guess.

    Also if you were trying to make this a thread wherein folks list and/or discuss upcoming shows that is what the General Phoenix Area Shows thread is. That list of upcoming shows I just posted came from the first post of that thread.
