New Year's Eve 2013 Parties in Downtown Phoenix Downtown Phoenix was replete with a slew of New Year's Eve parties, including spirited shindigs like the '70s-inspired Boogie Ball at FilmBar, a night of punk rock headlined by Scorpion vs. Tarantula at The Lost Leaf, and the hipster-meets-disco festivities at the Crescent Ballroom during Sean Watson's Amateur Night New Year's Eve.
First Friday Art Walk in Downtown Phoenix, 1/3/14 Phoenix's first First Friday Art Walk of 2014 got the year off to a great start by featuring some fantastic artists and vendors.

The artsy event offered music from Andy Warpigs, Sister Lip, Wolvves, and others, as well as works by such artists as Sierra Joy, Casebeer, J.J. Horner, Brandon Huigens, and Tara Logsdon.
