12 Labor Day Weekend Parties in Metro Phoenix
|Wild Knight in Scottsdale.|
Eclipse at Wild Knight
According to the sky-watching brainiacs at NASA, there won't be an eclipse of either the sun or moon viewable in Arizona until October, and even then it's going to be partial. That's not stopping anyone at Wild Knight from holding this theme party on Friday, August 30, in which patrons are encouraged to wear all-black clothing and DJ Nathan Reeser will perform. (Wonder if he'll spin "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler?) Indulge in enough of the $3 Fireball shots, $4 Bud Light bottles, or $5 Skyy drinks, however, and you might encounter a blackout of a different sort. Starts at 10 p.m. Call 480-213-9500 for cover.

Splat! Paint & Foam Party at Arizona Event Center
Rave fans will have an embarrassment of riches over Labor Day weekend as a total of three different off-the-radar dance events are scheduled to transpire over the next few days. And probably the messiest of the bunch will be this all-night rager over in Mesa on Friday, August 30. Cans filled with a rainbow selection of paint will be made available to attendees to throw at each other during this giguanda celebration of hot beats and colored pigments. Those wishing to wash up can head for the room that will be filled to the brim with a sea of soapy foam. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. General admission is $20, and VIP access is $30.
