William Fucking Reed, and the other DJs behind Sticky Fingers have decided to wash their hands of Rips. They're leaving behind the vintage dive bar, which has served as the original home of the trendy rock 'n' roll dance night since it launched back in April, and headed for the much bigger Bar Smith.

The downtown Phoenix dancing den has much more space where Reed and his crew can "fully realize" their vision for the weekly event, he says, including adding snazzier lighting elements and a larger "custom DJ façade."

There will be plenty of new faces to go along with Sticky Fingers' new home, including DJ Radar and Tricky T spinning on the first floor. The relaunch party this Friday will also feature a special spin gig by Andy Marlow (formerly of Ima Robot) and a performance by L.A. electroclash band Little Red Radio.
