Shake! Says Goodbye With Halloween Bash

The much talked about demise of Modified Arts as an indie rock venue has another twist: South Scottsdale's The Rogue Bar is entering the fray by moving to a full-time live venue.

Sadly, as part of that, DJ William "Fucking" Reed's always wonderful Shake! dance night is going the way of the buffalo following Halloween after 4 years of Trashcan-sipping bliss.

"Phoenix music lovers will see bands hitting the stage every Saturday as of November 7. Venue-goers can expect to hear Indie, Punk, Alt-Country, and general Rock 'N Roll five nights a week. The bar will be focusing on supporting local musicians and welcoming touring national acts in efforts to nurture Phoenix's place on the national music scene. Conversations with local and national promotion companies are underway, as well as an effort to create an All-Ages area for local fans under 21. Full calendar to be announced shortly on soon-to-be-launched www.theroguebar.com."

Admission to the Halloween "Zombie Prom" is $3 with doors at 8 p.m.. A costume contest, give-aways, and drink specials are planned throughout the night.
