First Friday

What's on Tap for Tonight's First Friday: What Laura, Train Tracks, and More

Did you miss out on the last First Friday?

Don't be ashamed if you did, since January's edition of the monthly art walk extravaganza fell on New Years Day, which meant a lot of folks stayed at home dealing with a hangover rather than perusing pulchritudinous paintings and photographs. As a result of this scheduling snafu (not to mention some rather chilly weather), the streets of Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue were much emptier than usual.

That won't be the case at tonight's First Friday, as we're expecting downtown Phoenix galleries and venues to be packed to the rafters.

Since Lilia "Arty Girl" Menconi already briefed y'all for the onslaught of art that will be present, here's a look at some of the musical acts, bands, and DJs who will be plying their trade for your enjoyment.
