Maybe 2012 Will Be Better: A New Year's Eve Art Show At The Compound

You gotta hand it to local art dudes JJ Horner, Colton Brock, and Charles Darr, for creating an annual NYE extravaganza that means more to The Valley than blacking out and barhopping.

This year's edition, aptly titled Maybe 2012 Will Be Better will take place at Tempe art gallery/music venue/"zombie-proof campground," The Compound, on the southeast corner of Farmer and University. 

This year's include an impressive list of art community members including Bucky MillerLalo CotaPablo LunaRyan Gentry, and JB Snyder, to name a few, and live performances by DJentrification, Sugar Thieves, Biologia, and Playboy Man Baby. 

Food by JoBot Coffee and Farmer Woody will also be provided. And whether 2012 will be better or not, there's no question local art, live music, plenty of booze, and multiple bonfires will be a pretty damn good start.  

Admission is $10. For more information visit,
