Brotha Lynch Hung

Joe's Grotto : 7:00 p.m. October 22

Gangbangin' doesn't excite Brotha Lynch Hung anymore, nor does the topic of his cult following, one that's grown exponentially throughout his 27-year career. At 42, the seminal Californian rapper lights up when talking about his upcoming barbecue cookbook or the screenplays he's working on. But... More >>

Project Hieroglyph Presents "Stories and Visions for a Better Future"

Crescent Ballroom : 7:00 p.m. October 22

Remember the scene in Back to The Future Part II when Marty goes to the future? It’s wondrous -- flying cars, clothes that shrink to fit you, hoverboards. The Chicago Cubs even won the World Series! And this year, so full of badass technology and improbable baseball wins: 2015.... More >>

Ray LaMontagne

Comerica Theatre : 7:30 p.m. October 22

Although he's often compared to such heavyweights as Otis Redding and Van Morrison, singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne is much more akin to folks like Stephen Stills and Tim Buckley. Such a distinction is crucial. Where Redding and Morrison made transcendent music that crossed genre lines with... More >>

Bam Margera as Fuckface Unstoppable

Club Red : 6:00 p.m. October 23

You're probably familiar with Bam Margera from the various stunts he's pulled with his gang of jackasses on MTV's Jackass. There's also that TV show of his own called Viva La Bam, where you got to see a group of grown-ass men act like petulant little shits. In what is perhaps one of the most... More >>

Mesa Music


Nile Theater : 6:30 p.m. October 23

In a very graphic case of "going to 11," Tennessee's Whitechapel crafts its malevolent deathcore with three guitarists. This allows for down-tuned doom, finger-widdling flurries and punctuating false harmonic squeals to simultaneously provide context for Phil Bozeman's disturbingly possessed... More >>

Anniversary Artwalk

Scottsdale Arts District : 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. October 23

The 40th anniversary may mean ruby for the married folk, but for old town Scottsdale it means canvas, ceramics, photographs, and, well, you get the idea. For two score, as Lincoln might put it, Scottsdale’s historic downtown has been hosting its free community artwalk, and this fall... More >>

Chuck Palahniuk: Beautiful You

Dobson High School : 7:00 p.m. October 23

If we had a nickel for every time someone started the sentence, “The first rule of fight club...,” we'd be able to fill up a truckload of coin wrappers and use them to plant punches right on each of their slack jaws. See, we freaking love Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club, but if we were... More >>

Colbie Caillat

Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Arizona State Fair : 7:00 p.m. October 24

The music of Malibu diva Colbie Caillat is quite frothy, with a pretty voice but not much to say lyrically on poppy early songs such as "Bubbly" and the recent piano ballad "Try." There seems to be a genuine heart at the heart of Demi Lovato's music, especially because the former Disney Channel... More >>

Lit Lounge

SMoCA Lounge : 7:00 p.m. October 24

Getting up on stage and reading something you wrote is not an easy thing to do; making it entertaining is even harder. Luckily, there’s Lit Lounge.

Penn & Teller

Mesa Arts Center : 8:00 p.m. October 24

Penn & Teller have had the longest running magic show in Las Vegas for good reason. The duo isn’t as corny as Criss Angel, and their performance combines comedy, suspense, and political discourse in the best possible way. Sure, the libertarian and atheist rants can get a little tiring,... More >>

Mesa Performing Arts, Comedy


The Pressroom : 8:30 p.m. October 24

Sure, this moody, broody band used to feature actress Shannyn Sossamon, but even without the celebrity, this group has built up a lot of buzz in the past year. Even with just its 2010 debut, The Fool, and widely acclaimed 2014 self-titled follow-up, the band has cemented its place in the hearts... More >>

KUPD's Big Red Night of the Dead

Downtown Phoenix : 2:00 p.m. October 25

With the exception of maybe Ozzy Osbourne’s or Rob Halford’s respective birthdays, few yearly celebrations dotting the Gregorian calendar are as explicitly metal as Halloween. Metal’s varied subgenres share the holiday’s exaltation of creepy things, phantasmagoria,... More >>

Central Phoenix Music, Halloween

Beer & Bacon Festival

Wigwam Golf Resort & Spa : 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. October 25

Why it has taken so long for Phoenix to unleash a Beer & Bacon Festival is beyond reason. This is, simply put, a gathering celebrating two of mankind’s greatest culinary delights. Unlike most festivals that feature limited samples, this event, hosted by The Wigwam and the Arizona Pork... More >>

Zombie Walk 6

Historic Heritage Square : 6:00 p.m. October 25

In The Walking Dead, the so-called survivors sure kill a lot of zombies. Don’t you ever feel for them? We mean, the walkers are just trying to get by like anybody else in this crazy world. It’s not their fault they love the taste of human flesh and brains. You can show your zombie... More >>

Marisa Ronstadt and the Know-It-Alls

Last Exit Live : 7:30 p.m. October 25

Arizona Cardinals vs. Philadelphia Eagles

University of Phoenix Stadium : 1:05 p.m. October 26

Even when the NFL is predictable, it’s not. The belief back in August was that the Arizona Cardinals, who lost nearly every key piece on from last year’s defense, could win in spite of their defense, not because of it. Instead, the Cards’ defense has carried the team to first... More >>

Glendale Sports - Spectator, Football


Marquee Theatre : 8:00 p.m. October 27

Matthew Paul Miller, otherwise known as Matisyahu -- translated to "Gift of God" in Hebrew -- has been putting out his blend of traditional Jewish themes, reggae, beatboxing, alternative, and slightly psychedelic rock since 2004. From the beginning, he was known for his signature beard and... More >>

Tempe Music

Phoenix Suns vs. L.A. Lakers

US Airways Center : 7:00 p.m. October 29

On paper, a starting lineup that includes Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and Carlos Boozer looks pretty damn formidable. Turns out, that particular piece of paper is pockmarked, frayed, and dates back to about 2007. In NBA years, that’s a really long time ago.Still, Lakers fans are hitching... More >>

Queens of the Stone Age

Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Arizona State Fair : 7:00 p.m. October 30

It’s difficult to understate the importance of the role that Queens of the Stone Age has played in rock music in the past decade and a half. In terms of songwriting, musicianship, and production, no other band has consistently blazed as fiery a trail as QOTSA. When frontman Josh... More >>

News flash: You probably eat bugs a few times a week without realizing it. It sounds kinda gross, we know, but the cochineal bug has been used as a red dye for centuries.

The smell of funnel cakes is in the air and circular lights are spinning in the sky. That can only mean one of two things: Aliens are here and they’re throwing a hoe-down or the Arizona State Fair is back up and running. We’re going to go with the latter.The annual event is offering... More >>
