Plastic Plates @ Last Exit Live

The stickiness is back and it's spreading. About six months after he pulled the plug on his ultra-popular DJ/dance event Sticky Fingers, William Fucking Reed has resurrected the event and given it a reboot of sorts, renaming it Sticky Fingers Mobile Disco. Instead of staging the shindig (self-described as a "hedonistic, altruistic, genre-bending, trend-setting, anything-goes dance party) as a weekly at one specific joint, like its former home at Bar Smith, it instead will hit the road and go down as a one-off and "for-those-who-know traveling disco" on various weekends at a variety of hip downtown Phoenix hangouts like Apollo's or Last Exit Live. The latter bar, located at 717 South Central Avenue, is where the Mobile Disco is making its first stop, on Friday, May 10, and it's bringing some big names along for the ride: Australian disco-house specialist (and Kitsune Records artist) Plastic Plates and Michael Simonetti of Italians Do It Better. Locals The Holy Coast and Hoodwink of Pastries with Teeth will also perform. "Prepare for your mind to be blown," states the Facebook page for the party, which starts at 9 p.m. Admission is $10.
