Fatboy Slim and Five More 4th of July DJ Events in Metro Phoenix
Twist Thursdays at Martini Ranch
DJ Slippe knows how to cover his ass. After learning that Axis-Radius -- the longtime home for his popular 18-and-over dance affair Twist Thursdays -- was going to be closing, he moved things a few blocks down Stetson Drive to the nearby Martini Ranch, and he's set to relaunch the party Thursday night on the Fourth of July.
Every room at the combination dance club and music venue will host jams after things kick off at 10 p.m. G-Unit artist Hot Rod and Slippe's EDM-with-vocals side protect Drunk Dial will stage live sets in the main room along with hip-hoppers Ink and Ryan O'Connor. Meanwhile, JD from 101.5 Jamz and Kalin Tyler will DJ in the upstairs Shaker Lounge. Admission is $15.
Benjamin Leatherman Pickster One in the mix.
Blunt Club's Fourth of July Banger at Yucca Tap
Promoter Dumperfoo is appropriately blunt in his hard sell of the shindig taking place on Thursday night at the Yucca, declaring simply "Fuck those bootleg firework parties - Spend Fouth of July with the Blunt Club." Word.
There won't be much in the way of M-80s or Black Cats at the joint, despite images of such explosives on the flyer, but you can partake in the live hip-hop/jazz fusion work of The Brothers Cosmos, as well as the night's usual mix of live art and b-boy footwork. Pickster One will also be in the mix, as will fellow selector World Famous Rani G., who will be making his Blunt Club debut. Things get going at 9 p.m. and admission is free.
