12 Labor Day Weekend Parties in Metro Phoenix
|DJ Adrian Flanagan|
We Rule the School Party at Rips Ales & Cocktails
Catholic schoolgirl costumes, pocket-protectors, and Pokémon backpacks aren't required to gain entry into Obscura's We Rule the School Party on Saturday, August 31, at the CenPho dive. While there will be a certain geek feel to the shindig, you won't need to dress the part. It will be geared more towards music nerds -- evidenced by the fact the name of the event is inspired by a Belle & Sebastian -- and will feature DJ Adrian Flanagan playing patron's requests all evening. He'll also be giving away B&S posters and copies of their new album. The party starts at 9 p.m. Admission is $5.

The Dip Pool Party at Days Inn Scottsdale
To the average cat, the name Jazzy Jeff would probably dredge up memories of the performer's various televised misadventures in Bel Air from the 1990s alongside The Fresh Prince. For those who are a bit more knowledgable in the realm of DJs and turntables, however, he's a diversely talented beat-juggler and one of the greats in the game. And during Labor Day weekend, he'll co-headline the Dip Pool Party on Saturday, August 31, with former MTV mainstay DJ Skribble at this Scottsdale hotel, which runs the entire afternoon and into the evening. Gates open at noon. General admission is $40.
