If you were out soaking up the sounds at the Monarch Theatre during Pete Tong's spectacular set last month, we might have taken your picture. Ditto for those who hung out at both Bottled Blonde and El Hefe in Scottsdale, folks celebrating Spring Training at Dos Gringos and Giligin's, or the ravers who were up late at Arizona Event Center for Bubble Bobble 6.

Club Candids logged a lot of miles this month heading out to said establishments duiring the month of March and grabbing numerous party pics. Here's a rundown of some of the best shots.

February was most certainly a busy month for the Club Candids crew. Each and every week, we hit up hot nightspots and dance joints in both Tempe and Scottsdale and grabbed snaps of some of the mass revelry that was taking place within. And believe us, there was a lot of celebrating going on.

For instance, we kicked off the month by traveling into the midst of an absolutely off-the-chain Seattle Seahawks party happening during Super Bowl XLVIII at American Junkie. Then, it was a back-to-back rager at neighboring Tempe spots Zuma and the Mill Cue Club, followed by a chance to hang with hip-hop personality Fatman Scoop at Maya in Scottsdale and a visit to the newly opened Cake Nightclub in Scottsdale.

Check out 25 of our favorite Club Candids photos from said events.

Feeling the magic at DJ Roya's birthday party at Apollo's Lounge.
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.

Fun fact: If a Phoenix New Times Club Candids photographer is caught out in the line of duty--and given the size of the cameras they carry around, this happens a lot--we disavow all knowledge of their activities.

So when you see them taking photos in every nook and cranny of the Phoenix nightlife--at Reform School, a "schoolgirl fetish dance night," for instance--know this, if nothing else: They're risking a lot to bring you these photos.

August is a paradox. It's peak pool party weather, inasmuch as it's too hot out to do much else, but it's also the socially accepted time to begin wrapping up the pool party season, wearing white, pretending it's summer instead of pretending it's fall, etc.

It's a transition month for our Club Candids photographers: A run of bright, blue pool parties, and Fetish Heat, which is about as dark as it gets. Here are 25 of their clubbiest, intermittently candid-est photos.

Candids July 2013

Some of these end up being more candid than others, is the thing.
An emergency deployment to Hollywood Alley might have deprived them of sleep and beer money, but it wasn't about to keep our Club Candids photographers off their usual July beat: Taking pictures of people who would probably have left Phoenix for the summer if it weren't for the pool parties.

As always, then, we've collected the fruits of their labor, as partial repayment for forcing them to walk around a pool with extremely expensive camera equipment in triple-digit weather.

Scottsdale's Maya Day & Nightclub, June 22
June ended with a bang--Axis Radius closed down after one last blowout and temperatures spiked from "I guess I signed up for this" to "I did not sign up for this"--but our Club Candids photographers were busy all month, documenting Phoenix nightlife and consuming lots of fluids, probably.

Here are 25 photos they've left us to remember June by. (Whether you want to remember it or not.)

Enjoying the bright lights and big beats of Hollywood Saturdays at EPIQ Nightclub in Scottsdale. See more photos from this week's Club Candids slideshow.
The weekend drinking and dancing action at EPIQ Nightclub in Scottsdale gets so fierce that it appears as though people are climbing the walls while frenetically partying their brains out.

Okay, that ain't literally the case, mind you, but damned if don't look that way, thanks to all the smoke and mirrors inside the Saddlebag Trail nightspot, as well as its small size, tiered VIP areas, and the gigantic mass of clubbers that typically occupy the place during its popular Hollywood Saturdays weekly.
