But, natch, there's more on our filled-to-the-margins agendas. Here are our top picks for ways to spend the weekend.
Steampunk Fashion Show @ The Firehouse
Steampunkers will be out in full fantastical Victorian regalia tonight for a fashion show featuring three groups: the First Friday Night Live troupe, Furry Creatures, and Steampunk Fashion.
The time-traveling tear starts at 7 p.m. with a performance from Romantasy Cabaret. Musicians Jellied Brainz will also perform throughout the evening. $5 donations will be requested to benefit the Firehouse. See more here.
"Jason Hill: Icons of Phoenix" @ Willo North Gallery
This centennial exhibition is a retrospective of Hill's works: prints and artistic representations of Phoenix landmarks including the Westward Ho, Phoenix Financial Center, and Sunnyslope Mountain.
5 & Diner Rockabilly Bash Car & Bike Show @ Firebird International Raceway
Calling all cats and kittens: Hot rods, rat rods, street rods, and leadsleds will compete Saturday during a daylong celebration of all things rockabilly. A sock hop, pageant, and drag race round out the jive jam.
Downtown Phoenix Release Party @ Hanny's
Co-writers J. Seth Anderson, Jim McPherson, and Suad Mahmuljin will release their photo-heavy, historical paperback Downtown Phoenix, which chronicles the neighborhood's evolution from Native land to Midcentury Modern mecca and beyond, at Hanny's on Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m. There's no cover and the book will be available for $20. See details here.
D.L. Hughley @ Stand Up Live
D.L. Hughley's weekend stint at Stand Up Live ends with a set on Sunday at 7 p.m. Expect plenty of whip-smart political jokes, profanity, and skewering of touchy subjects from The Kings of Comedy star and creator of The Hughleys. Tickets are $30. See more here.
