Modifest: The Last "Big Indie Rock Show" At Modified Arts

Modified Arts is will again host a three-day music showcase for some of Phoenix's best up and coming bands. The event, which started last year with 25 local bands and comedians, has commitments from What Laura Says, Matthew Reveles, Black Carl, Yellow Minute, Dry River Yacht Club, and Treasure MammaL. This is the last major event the 11-year-old venue will host before it undergoes renovations and re-opens at the beginning of 2010 as a "progressive art space" with more art and only small, experimental concerts.

The cost of the event is $5 and all the proceeds will go to a youth group at the Phoenix Public Library. Full line-up and set times below.
