Santa’s Back 7
- If Santa preferred the naughty to the nice: he’d stuff the stockings of San Diego hardcore band Willie Psycho with carpal-tunnel wrist braces (they play really fast) and maybe some shirts (they tend to play shirtless)
- If Santa switched the “n” with the “t” when spelling his name: he’d be a fan of One Dollar Death, a bunch of Arizona metal-heads who have a shredding guitar player named Shredder and a creepy drummer named the Creeper
- If Santa wanted to scare himself back up the chimney: he’d put on a record by Fatal Malady, who don freaky death masks while cranking out thrash metal in the vein of Prong and Pantera
- If Santa never wanted to touch another cookie again: he’d repeatedly listen to the possessed Cookie-Monster vocals and double-bass ricochets of Sounds Like Murder
- If Santa wanted to make flames shoot out the exhaust pipe of his sleigh: he’d blast the whiplash hardcore of Camel Enamel
Arizona Event Center
Wanting to see more art, music, and entertainment in their town, a few local businessmen decided to take matters into their own hands and build a venue flexible enough to host all three. Their creation—the 30,000 square foot Arizona Event Center—boasts three stages between the back theater and front pavilion, comfortably hosting up to 4,000 guests at any given time. They rent the versatile space out for concerts, sporting events, trade shows, comedy nights, and even weddings, enhancing each experience with a professional lighting and sound system.
While the place itself is already impressive, the owners supplement its intrinsic charms with local business partnerships. The Mesa Police Department oversees certain security duties, liquor and energy drink companies supply complementary goods as advertisements, visitors are served food, snacks, and drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, and Clean Air Cab makes sure that plenty of vehicles are on hand to ferry away partiers who took advantage of the full bar or donated their rides to a monster truck rally.
