Easter Moon Festival

Zach Sciacca (a.k.a. Z-Trip) may not look like the Easter Bunny, but just like ol' Peter Cottontail, the renowned Phoenix-born turntablist is planning on delivering some treats this weekend. We ain't talking about sugary peeps or gooey chocolate, however, as Sciacca will instead be serving up some sweet beats as the co-headliner of the Easter Moon Festival on Saturday, April 11, at Firebird International Raceway, 20000 South Maricopa Road in Chandler. Besides featuring our own local-DJ-made-good, the all-night extravaganza will feature live performances by electronica artists Daedelus and Rabbit in the Moon, L.A. rapper Chali 2na (who used to MC for Jurassic 5), and spin gigs by the UK's Stompy and Tech Itch. A slew of Valley wax workers will also be doing their thing, including Gloryhole, Matt Dunn, Tricky T, Jared Alan, Sinabyte, and others. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is $35. Call 602-230-4222 or visit www.myspace.com/eastermoonaz.
