<br><br><i>FutureKind is scheduled to perform at The Lost Leaf.</i><br /><br />It's probably gonna be a chilly one tonight, so be sure to bring a jacket or hoodie when you're out traipsing along Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue in search of art during tonight's First Friday. Besides heading to <a href="http://www.tammiecoecakes.com/" target="_blank">Tammie Coe's</a> or <a href="http://www.myspace.com/conspirephoenix" target="_blank">Conspire</a> for something warm to drink, we suggest huddling close (but not too close) to your fellow art lovers as you watch the dozens of musicians and performers doing their thing.<br /><br />But if you're a fan of HoodRide's treehouse (which usually hosted DJ Jon Dread spinning reggae and old-school during First Friday), you'd better find a new hangout. As we <a href="http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/uponsun/2008/12/city_of_phoenix_orders_hoodrid.php" target="_blank">reported about within the last hhour</a>, the city of Phoenix ordered the structures destruction yesterday.<br /><br />
