The Soul Justice Project

Just like your mother always told you, there are two sides to every story. And The Soul Justice Project is will tell each of them. By combining theatre with dance, spoken word, music, and mixed media, The Soul Justice Project plans to explore the politics of American media outlets, while giving each side of the issue a voice. From 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, May 1, such local performers as Sydney Jackons, Myrlin Hepworth, and Xanthia Walker will represent Phonetic Spit, Mesa Arts Center's spoken word and education partner, and bring a powerful mix of arts, politics, and community to the stage, One East Main Street. Tickets are $22 for adults and $10 for students. For more information and to purchase tickets, check out Evie Carpenter

Free Comic Book Day

On the high holy geek day that is Free Comic Book Day, you might be tempted to dash into comic book stores across the Valley, hoarding comic rag swag. Instead, calm your Lex Luthor-like aspirations and get into the spirit of the day by getting to know the people of your local comic shop's community and what they're reading. Whether it's recommendations of boundary-breaking superhero Ms. Marvel, the epic sci-fi/fantasy of Saga, or the further adventures of the Belcher family in the Bob's Burgers comics, a fellow fan can probably quench your comic thirst.

Free Comic Book Day is Saturday, May 2, and will be celebrated across the Valley at various local comic book stores including All About Books & Comics, Ash Avenue Comics & Books, Drawn to Comics, Enterprise Comics, Gotham City Comics & Coffee, Jesse James Comics, Pop Culture Paradise, and Samurai Comics.
