Club Candids: Sticky Fingers' Finale at Bar Smith
Photos by Benjamin Leatherman Fun times were afoot at the final edition of Sticky Fingers on Friday, November 16, at Bar Smith. See more photos from the night via this week's Club Candids slideshow.
The final night of Sticky Fingers this past Friday went down much like any of the other editions of the long-running indie dance night. Both floors of Bar Smith were packed with members of the young and hip crowd sporting a variety of quirky fashions, DJ favorites like Borisimo and Noiz.Fkr dropping mad tracks, and a vigorous amount of dancing and other antics.

Sticky Fingers czar William Fucking Reed was in the house for the last edition of the night, which is going the way of the dodo after two years of kicking it cool. While the hipster icon may not be spending his Friday nights on the decks at Bar Smith for the foreseeable future, he's definitely got plenty to keep him busy.
As Reed told Up on the Sun last week, he's got his Blaque Panther Disco side project to occupy his time, as well as classes to teach at both Glendale and Mesa Community College, as well as his weekly Sunday night soiree C'est La Vie at SoChu house, and one-offs and guest DJ appearances at upcoming nightlife events (including a gig at Jen Deveroux's Turkey Tits party tonight at Gypsy Bar).

Plus, we've got the nagging suspicion that Reed will eventually be launching another Friday or Saturday hipster dance night sometime in the future. Count on it.
