With the holidays fast approaching, we're taking a cozy approach with the November 19 installment of Bar Flies, New Times' monthly live reading series at Valley Bar in downtown Phoenix. The theme: Family Ties.
The readers: Maxfield Barker, Evie Carpenter, Nikki DeLeon, Katie Johnson, and Molly McCloy.
Johnson is curating, with music by Kevin Vaugh-Brubaker. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the reading begins at 7. Tickets are $5, and you can get them through Valley Bar.
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.
