First Friday

What's on Tap for Tonight's First Friday

Jeezum crow, its gonna be cold this weekend. Really cold. Like in the 30s.

So unless hypothermia is your bag baby, better throw on an extra sweater or down plenty of spirits when venturing out to tonight's freezing First Friday at the various and sundry art hotspots in and around the downtown arts district.

Speaking of cool, that's exactly how you could describe some of the art and music that will be available at the galleries and art spaces of Roosevelt Row, Grand Avenue, and elsewhere in downtown. The fly paintings of Jules Demetrius (pictured) will be at the Lost Leaf. Pigment pimp Brian Boner will have a new show up around the corner at eye lounge. And you'll definitely want to check out Heritage Square, where the folks behind music/culture Web-board The Shizz have booked a few local acts like Thee Jaguar Sharks and The Worrymen.

Oh yeah, in case you missed Arty Girl's earlier blogs, Stinkweeds is holding an awesome "Indie Crafeteria" party and the Phoenix Art Museum is celebrating its 50th Anniversary.

Stay warm.
