This Weekend: Roller Dames, Shiny Toy Guns and The Hives

By Jonathan McNamara

The weekend is upon us once again. I know it will be hard to break away from the weekly tedium and (gasp) have some fun, but fear not! You won't have to fret about what to do. Just take a look below, take a deep breath in and enjoy your time off.

Friday: Shiny Toy Guns at Martini Ranch

Their next album Season of Poison won't be released for a few months, but Shiny Toy Guns are already touring for it. See the indie, electro-rock outfit that gave Chemical Brothers a run for their money at the 2008 Grammys tonight at Martini Ranch.

Saturday:Arizona Derby Dames Double Header at Castle Sports Club

How do you improve upon roller skating? Other than aerosol cans of sterilizing spray we recommend adding a fist full of violence. That's exactly what you'll get when you watch the Brutal Beauties take on the Schoolyard Scrappers during this double header.

Sunday: Barbarella at Phoenix Art Museum

Sunday is the Lord's day, so let's spend it by watching dolled-up, Space trollops. Okay, she's a science fiction icon, but even back when this film was made you have to bet the director was counting on a little T&A to pull in those ticket sale dollars.
