June ended with a bang--Axis Radius closed down after one last blowout and temperatures spiked from "I guess I signed up for this" to "I did not sign up for this"--but our Club Candids photographers were busy all month, documenting Phoenix nightlife and consuming lots of fluids, probably.
Here are 25 photos they've left us to remember June by. (Whether you want to remember it or not.)
Pool Party - Maya Day & Nightclub, Scottsdale - June 22, 2013
Maya Day & Nightclub had a line out the door on Saturday, June 22. The posh Scottsdale club was full of fit and tan guests escaping the heat and sipping cocktails and dancing to top 40 hits all afternoon.
Summer Bar Olympics at Dos Gringos ScottsdaleAll photos by Benjamin Leatherman. View the full slideshow.
The Club Candids crew witnessed both the thrill of victory and agony of defeat during the annual Summer Bar Olympics at Dos Gringos in Scottsdale on Sunday, June 23. Themed teams of four sporting outlandish costumes and even more outlandish names (including such crews as "Just the Tip" and "This Microphone is a Penis") battled in an afternoon-long and alcohol-fueled series of bar games and drunken distractions like flip cup, quarters, and bag tossing in pursuit of glory, medals, and a gigantic trophy made from beer cars.

Insane Clown Posse - Pepsi Amphitheater, Flagstaff - June 2, 2013All photos by Benjamin Leatherman. View the full slideshow.
Wanna know what happens when you mix hundreds of raucous Juggalos and Juggalettes hyped up on hip-hop with gallons of Faygo and the wicked antics of the Insane Clown Posse? Probably the same sort of wild and sticky that ensued at the Pepsi Amphitheater in Flagstaff when ICP brought its Mighty Death Pop! tour to the Northern Arizona concert venue on Sunday, June 2. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, backed by a cadre of evil costumed clowns and other sinister figures deluged the crowd will their trademark soda while blasting out some of their biggest hits. Horrorcore hip-hop artist Kung Fu Vampire and the country rappers Moonshine Bandits opened the energetic affair, which featured face-painted members of the Dark Carnival traveling from across the state to attend the show.
