This Weekend: First Friday, Mad Juana and the Arizona Lowrider Super Show
By Jonathan McNamara
September has reared its slightly cooler (we hope) head and bestowed upon us a great deal of new things to see and do. Here's what we'll be hitting up this weekend.
Friday, September 5: First Friday in Downtown Phoenix
You know the drill: a bunch of kats and kittens chilling on the streets of Phoenix with music blaring to the wee hours of the morning. Jump on in, Phoenix.
Planning on hitting Perihelion Arts this First Friday? They've moved.

Saturday, September 6: "Mad Juana at The Rogue
We've just discovered these guys and we're stoked. Take a shot of Gogol Bordello and mix in a dash or two of Flamenco. Mad Juana just sounds like a great time.
Hear them for yourself in this Mad Juana podcast.

Sunday, September 7: Arizona Lowrider Super Show
How does eight hours of lowrider cars, lowrider models and spinning DJs grab you? Sunday is your last chance to check out the Arizona Lowrider Super Show before it drives off low and slow toward next year.
