Top 5 Things to Do This Weekend
Looking for ways to fill up your weekend? Here are your five best bets for getting out and about in the Valley of the Sun.
PHX FMLY Fest @ Fifth Street
In all likelihood, you have now spent on your family every last bit of love and understanding on you possess. That's why you should spend this Friday with a very different sort of family -- one that spells it FMLY.
FMLY is a collective out of L.A. that's teaming up with Robbie Pfeffer of Tempe Starving Artist to host PHX FMLY Fest, an arts-focused event that brings together more than 60 bands, plus visual artists, poets, and performers. Also on the schedule are a zine exchange and interactive art displays.
The free, all-ages event takes place from 1 to 11 p.m. on Friday along Fifth Street between Roosevelt and Garfield streets.
New Queer's Eve @ Rogue Bar
If you're prepared to ring in 2013 on what is technically New Year's Eve's eve's eve's eve, get yourself to Rogue Bar for an evening of delightfully depraved drag entertainment during New Queer's Eve. Catch punk-inspired performances from hostess Holly Pena Popper, along with Piper, Ninah Leven, Angela, and Gia. Craig Citizen will be up in the mix between acts. The fun starts at 9 p.m. on Friday. There's no cover.
