  • Childsplay
    Voted Best Children’s Theatre in 2010 by the Phoenix New Times, the Childsplay professional theater company delights young audiences and families with awe-inspiring, imaginative productions. The 2010–11 season welcomes to the stage Mary Norton’s classic The Borrowers, an enchanting story of a tiny family living under the floorboards that survives by nipping things from unsuspecting "human beans." The lonely protagonist, Arrietty, ventures upstairs in search of friends and finds a thrilling new world that is also full of excitement, danger, and runaway dust-ball boulders. Peeping youngsters will have their minds tastefully blown away by the creative use of shadow puppetry used to highlight the scale of the two different worlds and the Victorian science-fiction look and feel of the sets and costumes.

  • Great AZ Beer Festival
    No one goes thirsty at The Great Arizona Beer Festival, thanks to the sheer quantity of beer that abounds across the festival grounds. This year, more than 50 breweries from across Arizona, the U.S., and the Milky Way come together to share 200+ craft beers. Festival-goers can sample local wares like the Arizona honey wheat from Phoenix-based Old World Brewery or the Odelay Mexican Chocolate Ale from Four Peaks Brewery. In the midst of all this beer-sipping is live entertainment from Big Nick & The Gila Monsters, as well as snacks from food vendors. The festival also doubles as a fund-raising event for local charity Sun Sounds of Arizona, a non-profit radio reading service that helps Arizonans with print disabilities.

  • K. Michelle and Lupe Fiasco
    Canadian electrofunk duo Chromeo exhales party-starting inertia, kicking off its Night Falls Tour by rolling out a carpet of dance-floor passports. Melding the talents of guitarist, vocalist, and French-literature buff Dave 1 with the dexterous fingers and throwback savvy of synthmaster P-Thugg, Chromeo has earned reverence from funkophiles for its slick grooves and mastery of jam architecture. Fans can expect congenial beats, riffing Moogs, and song craft that father-and-son yachts can enjoy together in support of the band's latest album, Business Casual. Inflating the soulful evening, singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Mayer Hawthorne channels wandering Motown spirits with a retroactive Detroit sound, and French funk enthusiast Breakbot sets the scene with genre jumping and remixes that rumble like tubas in a Cuisinart.
