Over the Weekend: Fireworks, First Friday and Little Pieces

You're stuffed full of grilled meats and your clothes still smell like fireworks, but alas, the weekend has drawn to a close. Before you head back to the grind stone, take a gander at these weekend activities. Did you hit them all or did you miss out?
Indepence Day weekend got started with a few explosions and an accidental fire or two courtesy of the Rev, White and Boom fireworks extravaganza at Phoenix International Raceway. See what goes on behind the scenes at a fireworks display like this in our slide show: Rev, White and Boom at Phoenix International Raceway.
It's no surprise that a First Friday on Independence Day would have fireworks, but who would have suspected the Ghostbusters would be there too?
Musicians Little Pieces weren't about to let a lack of A/C stop them from putting on a raucous show at Modified Arts. With Sydney Sprague, Alaska and Me and The Guestroom, the band offered the sweet relief of music to help audience members beat the heat.
