February ended while the whole word was watching. No, really. They were watching from Margaret T. Hance park where Worldfest 2008, a celebration of Phoenix' sister cities, was underway.

Axis Radius in Scottsdale combined geek with chic in an event called "Battle of Rock Band." This PS3-assisted tournament for the video game Rock Band let club goers rock out with plastic instruments much to the pleasure of the crowds.

The Skirt Chaser 5K hit the ground running on Friday. Congrats to Sally Meyerhoff for pulling out a win in 19 minutes and three seconds.

Saturday night saw an invasion of prehistoric proportions as Diplo (short for Diplodocus) brought down the house with tasty beats.
