Toubab Krewe at Compound Grill Last Night Here's something amazing that pretty well sums up the vibe at Saturday night's Toubab Krewe show at Compound Grill: They let the chicks bring in their hula hoops and, dammit, they used them! In case you missed the memo, hula hooping is what hippie chicks started doing to take good ol' fashioned twirling to the next level...full story

First Friday: December 2010 Folks on fire? Check. Girls painted with glitter and dancing on walls? Check. A downtown filled with artists and loiterers checking out interesting local art to a soundtrack of bands cutting their teeth on their first live performances. Double check...see photos

Tempe Festival of the Arts Folks crowded Tempe's Mill Ave. to check out Indian folk instruments carved from wood and almond-covered apples. Artists sold their creations while unicyclists played violins and the Mill Ave. Cue Club crowd wondered what the hell was going on...see photos

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
