Just in case you havent heard, Modified Arts didnt close or become a strip joint (yes, these were rumors that were actually floated about). Rather, the longtime space simply changed its modus operandi by focusing on NYC-style music shows, such as the Alchemy of Sound, a collaboration series curated by Michael Krassner. The Boxhead Ensemble band member will improvise along with A Technicolor Yawn, a duo that combines Thrill Jockey-like guitar-scapes with a Duane Eddy-esque twang.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
