Shizzfest 2 is Currently Rocking the Shizz Outta Grand Avenue
Malaki gets loud at the Trunk Space during Shizzfest.
It's been something of a packed Saturday, what with Tour de Fat, the Tiki Throwdown, Oktoberfest, and various and sundry other weekend events happening around the Valley. If you've still got some energy and cash left, jump in your ride and head for Grand Avenue in downtown Phoenix, where the Shizzfest will be rocking the Trunk Space and the adjacent Sweets & Beats for another couple hours.
So far it's been a pretty memorable experience. The members of Peachcake have been walking around talking on a voice-changing microphone shaped like a pumpkin, haute cuisine is getting served up in the Trunk Space's backyard, and as I write this LA's Platypus Egg are currently performing eclectic and eccentric pop music fit for a Tim Burton film (as well as declaring that they will melt the polar ice caps with gamma rays to create "the world's biggest pool party).
Plus, if you get thirsty and want to help out the Shizz, the neighboring Bikini Lounge is donating $1 from every beer sold to the local Web-board.
Here's the schedule for the remaining bands this evening.
