The Haymarket Squares at Tempe Tavern You're not fooling anyone Haymarket Squares. Despite the fact you're staging an End of the World gig at Tempe Tavern with fellow Americana-inspired act Cockswain, we're certain that y'all aren't buying into this Mayan malarkey about the apocalypse and whatnot. Wanna know what tipped us off? The fact that you've got shows booked in January. So there. Check out both bands starting at 8 p.m. Admission's free.

Sedated at Rips Ales and Cocktails This Ramones/Clash cover band will appear at Rips during its combination "End of the World/Rips-mas" party on Friday night. Expect to hear the song of the same name being performed, as well as a performance by DJ Johnny Danger. The party stars at 9 p.m.
