New Times picks the best thing to do in metro Phoenix from Friday, May 6, to Sunday, May 8.

David Cross
In the 1990s, before people were willing to offer up their firstborns for your HBO GO pass to peep the medieval soap opera Game of Thrones, the network boasted some shows worthy of your “must binge-watch” list.

The sketch comedy program Mr. Show featured David Cross and Bob Odenkirk — and was one of those hits. Its scathing, irreverent skits tackled social issues, with abandon. After that, Cross went on to star in the exceptionally witty sitcom Arrested Development, where both he and the show garnered rave reviews. Recently, he returned to his stand-up roots. He’s taken Trump’s tagline, Making America Great Again! and is using it as the title of his current 50-state comedy tour. His no-holds-barred hilarity begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 6, at Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino, 5040 Wild Horse Pass Boulevard in Chandler. Admission is $42 to $82.

Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market
In Phoenix, you can’t talk vintage shopping without talking Junk in the Trunk. And this year, the popular annual event at WestWorld, 16601 North Pima Road in Scottsdale, is upping the ante with a special Friday evening shopping session so you can nab all the good finds before they’re gone. There will be over 200 vendors selling everything from jewelry to cooking utensils.

Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market’s special Friday night shopping event on May 6 goes from 6 to 9 p.m., and tickets are $65 at the door. General admission on Saturday and Sunday, May 7 and 8, is $8, and the event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on those days. Parking is $5 per car.

Unless you’ve been able to ignore the Internet for a few decades, you know the common denominator of “not safe for work” e-mail subjects or subreddits is nudity — a slang shorthand {9} The Gallery has borrowed for its artistic look into the naked human form.

In “NSFW,” 38 artists explore the constructs of beauty, gender, and mortality with their interpretations of nakedness. Those featured include local contemporary fine artist Jon Wassom, ceramist and sculptor Lucas J. Knowles, painter and muralist Beth Tom, and Artel director — and the collection’s co-presenter — Tara Sharpe.

See the free First Friday show from 6 to 10 p.m. on May 6 at 1229 Grand Avenue. The exhibition remains on view through Saturday, May 28, with another public reception on Third Friday. Details are at or Janessa Hilliard
