Macklemore to Appear at the W Scottsdale Hotel on Sunday Night
Timothy Norris/LA Weekly
As if you weren't already aware by now, we're currently hip deep in the utter madness of Super Bowl week as the showdown is less than 48 hours away.
And even though the onslaught of parties and concerts associated with the game are already taking place, a high-profile event was literally just announced within the last hour or two. Late this afternoon, the folks over at the W Scottsdale announced that Grammy-winning hip-hop artist Macklemore will host a "Big Game Finale" party on Sunday night at the hotel.

After the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks finish battling each other for football supremacy over in Glendale, the Seattle-born rapper is scheduled to appear at one of the final fetes of this year's Super Bowl experience to cap things off.
Many recording artists are being touted as "hosts" of big parties this weekend, which is sort of a nebulous designation that could mean anything from performing or serving as an emcee to simply getting on the microphone, hyping up the crowd, and then heading back to the VIP section.
In regards to Macklemore's gig at the W on Sunday, the press release sent out didn't specify what his hosting duties will entail. Of course, fans are likely hoping that he will pop off with a few of his hits like "Thrift Shop" or "Same Love."
At least they'll get to say that they partied with the dude, at any rate. Admission is $50 for the event, which begins at 10 p.m.
