Ignite Phoenix is back with a twist -- an "edgier," risqué edition for those who didn't get their fill listening to the 5-minute (and more family friendly) presentations. At Ignite After Hours anything goes.
The annual event, which takes the stage on July 27 at Radius in Scottsdale, will be a series of 5-minute, totally inappropriate presentations from people brave enough to grab a microphone. Presentation submissions for this years After Hours include My Fetish with Vanilla Sex, Satan - Not as bad of a guy as you might think, Lez Be Honest, and Got Me Some Wine.... Bitches Love Wine, to name a few.
Before you submit, there are a few requirements: You have to be at least 21 years old, your topic can't incite hate, and your topic must be something you can talk about for 5 minutes with a 20-slide presentation (slideshow optional).
Ignite After Hours kicks off at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) at Radius in Scottsdale. For more info, ticket sales, and submission details, check out the Ignite After Hours website.
