Downtown's Third Friday (Oct. 21) 


Third Fridays in downtown Phoenix are heating up with art openings and receptions in the galleries along Roosevelt Row. Thankfully, October's Third Friday was cool enough to get a good, long look at new work by local artists at Regular Gallery, monOrchid, Eye Lounge, and more ...


Phoenicians took the streets (er, avenue) during Saturday's Grand Avenue Festival. The annual event was full of local art, culture, and design and was hosted by the Grand Avenue Merchants' Association.




There was dancing until dawn at the OP-tic Building this past Saturday night as after-hours guru Quincy Ross put on an impromptu party at the downtown Phoenix art space starring DJ Pablo Gomez on the wheels of steel. Despite the fact he'd only decided to stage the event mere hours earlier, Ross' last-second shindig was well-attended by the usual variety of downtown scenesters, artists, and merry-makers.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
