On Saturday night, Piestewa Peak was lit with the costumes of several hikers decked out in LED lights and glowsticks. At least 25 people (members of the Arizona Cacophony Society) made the hike to the summit of the mountain, where a sprawling view of the valley at night awaited them. Some hikers brought balloons with them in hopes of 'lightening the load' on the steep hike to the top, while others brought a shot of whiskey to share upon reaching the summit. Participants wore everything from hulu skirts lit with 99 cent flashlights to Tron-like outfits made of blue glowsticks to light the rocky path ahead of them...see photos

First Friday April 2011
This month's First Friday brought many new things to the art-walk table. It seemed as if everyone was off celebrating their April Fool's Day elsewhere this weekend. The number of people that typically attend the event was slimmed down, but the vendors seemed to have multiplied. White tents were set up in numerous dirt lots aside from the normal locations, and of course, Conspire (Or Rainbow Unicorn Cafe...?) had a stage set up in the front AND back of the building, taking up most of the hang out room for the regulars. A few galleries seemed to have drawn more attention in than normal, including Slideshow and Klang. The event deserves kudos on trying something new, but would have been made better if more people would've just shown up...see photos

Pinky Tuscadero's WhiteKnuckle AssFuck, The Smoky Mountain Skullbusters, and Blanche Davidian at Yucca Tap Room
There are two schools of thought when it comes to band reunion shows: 1. "Man, they're time is past. They broke up and should stay that way." 2. "Awesome. They're coming back to fuck shit up one more time. Righteous." Given a choice betwixt these two differing viewpoints, I'm gladly more in line with the latter rather than the former, especially when it comes to last night's show at the Yucca Tap Room in Tempe featuring three of the more renowned punk bands in the Valley: Pinky Tuscadero's WhiteKnuckle AssFuck, The Smoky Mountain Skullbusters, and Blance Davidian...full story
