The 25 Best Club Candids Photos of January
It's been said that January is the worst month because of post-holiday depression, having to stick to all those pesky resolutions, or your ass getting dumped. But if anyone was feeling blue during the first month of 2014, they weren't showing their frowny faces at any of the bars, music venues, or dance joints that the Club Candids crew hit up the last four weeks.

That's because there was nothing but big grins and such when we asked clubgoers and night rangers to pose for pictures while hitting up such locations as the Monarch Theatre, El Hefe on Mill Avenue, and Long Wong's in Tempe. Some people mugged or clowned for our camera, while others merely just smiled. See for yourself as we look back at the best Club Candids shots of January 2014.
Tongue Tied's Michele "DJ Roya" Chinichian celebrated her birthday on Saturday, January 4, at Apollo's Lounge with a magically delicious evening of rainbows, unicorns, stickers, face painting, balloons, and enough bright colors to make Lisa Frank (not to mention your average suburban moppet) jealous. Plus, Dave Driscoll Dance Machine entertained with his funky moves and revealing neon spandex while DJs like Chinichian and Funkfinger spun indie hits and throwbacks from the '80s and '90s.
