March Madness

It’s not terribly surprising that 95 percent of the Phoenix hipster population wants to move to Portland. In the great Oregon city, you can still smoke inside the bars, plus it’s chock-full of mom-and-pop businesses, good-looking twentysomethings, and a music scene crazy enough to spawn a traveling Gypsy-marching-band-sideshow-circus-extravaganza like the MarchFourth Marching Band. This genre-defying group of artists and musicians boasts a 12-deep horn section plus 10 pieces o’ percussion, not to mention stiltwalkers, fire-eaters, and acrobats. Prior to the Cooper'stown gig, MarchFourth will perform during at the free Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts, which departs from Second and Washington streets at 7 p.m.
