Salt River Tubing on Fourth of July Weekend The Salt River was more crowded by Bikini-clad beauties and alcohol-swilling ruffians than normal on July 4th Weekend. Check out the aquatic antics in these photos...see photos

Cheap Trick at Talking Stick Resort on 7/3/10 I've seen these dinosaurs about eight times since 1992, in all sorts of venues (including, yes, the Milwaukee Zoo), and Saturday night's venue, Talking Stick Resort, was pretty terrible. I was hoping for an actual theater at the new resort/casino on Indian Bend and Loop 101, but it was little more than a giant carpeted ballroom (as you read this, Honeywell is probably having its annual shareholders meeting in that room) with banquet chairs set up in rows and a makeshift bars set up on the each end of the huge, nearly sold-out room...full story

Down the Rabbit Hole Salon Las Brisas in Glendale was bumping with beats all evening long on Friday, July 2, as ravers and club kids from across the Valley dressed in the costumes inspired by Alice in Wonderland for the Down the Rabbit Hole DJ and dance event...see photos

"Melt Down!" Opening Reception at Soyal Gallery Soyal Gallery tried to beat the heat with a selection of "cool" pieces of art by the likes of vinyl toy maker Mark Nagata and Ugly Dolls creator David Horvath. Check out their creations in these photos...see photos

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
