Friday, December 28: FMLY Fest @ Fifth Street

Millions of Phoenicians cover this 400-plus square mile slab of real estate we call the Valley of the Sun. Competition looms heavily as business, fashion, and even traffic, the most dangerous place it should be seen, bursts with a "me first" attitude. After a while, these elements form a disconnect that can threaten humanity leaving us bitter and mistrusting. Where's the love?

Here it is. Found in the heart of the healthy and growing arts district downtown is FMLY Fest. A mutually supportive collective forms this multi-city tour in the hopes of sustaining and reinvigorating free expression, sense of community without judgment, and all-around positive vibes. Just some of the Tempe Starving Artist-sponsored activities will be interactive displays, visual art, live painting, a zine exchange, and spoken word sessions. That's not to mention the more than 60 bands, including Ace-High Cutthroats, Wooden Indian, Skinny Shamans, Dearspeak, Yus, Hug of War, and more, playing various stages along Fifth Street between Roosevelt and Garfield streets.-- Craig Smith
