11 Spots to Party 'Til the End of the World in Metro Phoenix
Local DJ, drag artist, and LGBT activist Austin Head, who's still recovering from the recent hate crime assault by a pair of dastardly hoodlums, is putting on a frenetic fiesta entitled "The End of Days Cabaret" on Friday, December 21. The Mayan-inspired soiree will be hosted by the "chief priestess" Barbara Seville, exotic and erotic performances from Scandalesque and Capoeira Brasil-Arizona, as well as a DJ set by A Dynamic Mechanism and maybe some "virgin sacrifices."
Author and activist Joey Grether (a.k.a. Phil Freedom) will spend what could be his final hours hosting a combination group art show and dance party entitled "Mandala: The Next Epoch" on Friday, December 21, at the quirky coffeehouse. In addition to showcasing the latest work from "a ton" of local creatives, the event will feature electronic sounds from Phortran, Terminal 11, and Gohmn. Start time is 9 p.m. Admission is free.
Doomsday couldn't be a more fitting time to hang with some to the DJs of Sanctum, as they'll be serving up gloomy tunes of a Goth, industrial, and synth bent during "Black Mass: Apocalypse" on Friday, December 21. Apollynon and Aeternum are scheduled to spin and the bar will offer drink specials, in case you'd like to ease the pain of Armageddon. The party starts at 9:30 p.m. Admission is $5.
