Arizona summers are not the most welcoming. Triple-digit temperatures have been shutting down fun-in-the-sun activities for years.

When the heat comes, the hottest national acts skip over the state, local musicians tour cooler places or schedule less local shows, and most desert dwellers consider becoming recluses– friends to only their air conditioners, swamp coolers or fans.

The state may not be known as a hotspot for music festivals, but this year there are a few fall essentials for Arizona music lovers. Check out three recommended music events taking place in August, September and October…
