Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

By Jonathan McNamara

Let's cut to the chase here. There are a lot of great things going on this weekend, but none of them are as important as seeing Mini Kiss as written about in our Cinco De Mayo Guide.

I saw a video of this awesome foursome on Jimmy Kimmel Live and was transfixed. See them rock 'n' roll all night at Dos Gringos this Saturday.

Assuming you're still capable of functioning after Mini Kiss obliterates your visual and aural senses, you might also want to check out Free Comic Book Day. Several comic artists well be descending upon crowds of slack-jawed fan boys this Saturday.

If you can't make either of those events, don't worry. It's not as if the weekend has gone to pot...or has it. Find out for yourself at the Global Marijuana March. More than 220 cities around the world are participating in this march to legalize marijuana.

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.
