Share Fire Fest and After Party at the Icehouse Phoenix

While I already mentioned this in this weeks edition of “What’s Going Ahhhn” I thought it necessary to emphasize the importance of this event, even though it’s already in progress. All the details are listed again below, but there is also info on the after party at the Icehouse after the event is over. Even if this reaches a few people that may not know about this, it’s well worth a Saturday afternoon blog post.

The City of Phoenix has spoken and they say The Firehouse Gallery needs to do $7,000 worth electrical work to remain the bright and vibrant arts space that it has always been. The person who owns the building kindly put up $5,000 of it and so the $2,000 balance leftover needs to be handled by us … and how else would we do it except for throwing a massive all day party? There will be live music, performance art, live artists, fire spinning, face painting, poetry, comedy, raffles, laughs, and love for people of all ages. Oh and did I mention, TWO STAGES! Firehouse has always been a beacon for every weirdo with an idea who needed a place to make it come to fruition, and we need to keep it that way.

Commentary: I can’t add much more to that than the exuberant description, except to say that this place is super important to the arts and music of Phoenix and I can’t imagine it going away because the City of Phoenix are fucking fascists. the tentative, enormous set list is below.
