FMLY First

In December, local art zine Tempe Starving Artist and national creative event troupe FMLY joined efforts to bring dozens of live music shows, open mics, and live paintings to downtown Phoenix. FMLY fest was a one-night takeover on Roosevelt Row, during which Aaron Johnson, owner of book/zine store Lawn Gnome, hosted a lineup of live performances.

On Friday, January 25, Johnson will take the torch again and host 4xF, a FMLY Fest-inspired event that he hopes will become a monthly must-attend (and another reason for creative types and city kids to hang out downtown). It all goes down on Fifth Street between Roosevelt and Garfield streets with live stages at Jobot, Lawn Gnome, Bodega 420, 909 Housing Collective, and more.
