Feb. 25, 2015 — The Hourglass Cats haven’t officially released new music in quite sometime but they have managed to steadily grow anyway. From the big local indie fest Apache Lake Music Festival to the main stage at McDowell Mountain Music Festival, all the way to Tempe dive bars latin infused rock ‘n reggae band is popping up everywhere.

On Saturday Feb. 28 THC will be popping up at Casa Sunba, 5 E. Sixth St., Tempe, to release two brand new tracks. To go along with the release of their new tracks, “Be That Way” and “Been Thinking,” the Cats will also be premiering the video for “Be That Way.” Also on deck for the evening will be Paul Rupple as the opener, and Oops & Mic EZ to rap it all up at the end after THC tears it down with a double set.

The show is 21 and up and begins at 8 p.m. and is completely free.

Convergent Arts is an art collective just getting off the ground and for their first program they will be hosting a poetry slam at Fair Trade Community Kitchen, 424 N. Central Ave., at Civic Space Park. The slam will be all ages, has a $5 cover, and it begins at 7:30 p.m. Unlike previous Phoenix slams, the Inaugural Convergent Arts Slam will not have random judges judging the poetry but instead will ask the entire audience to participate in the judging.

Friday, Feb. 27

Comedy On Fire is up for episode number 23 which is a big deal for any show taking place at The Firehouse Gallery, 1015 N. First St., Phoenix. Host Matt Micheletti has been striving over the last two years to present the highest quality comedy he can, while still preserving the house party environment of the Firehouse. For this month’s show, he has reached west to Los Angeles to bring in comic James Mabry, Paco Mccauley, as well as headliner Sean McBride. Local Leslie Barton is the top local attraction. There is a $5 suggested donation, the show is all ages, and things get going at 8 p.m.

Saturday, Feb. 28

Urban Capture The Flag makes it to the calendar because the incomparable artist Joey G. is putting on the show for this rendition of the downtown strategy game. This is by no means the first time this game has been played in Phoenix, it’s just the next time. G. will be captaining one team while I am captaining the other. It becomes an art-focused event because it’s about more than just a game, but about reimagining a diverse landscape of useable terrain for all sorts of projects. The game begins at 10 p.m. at Civic Space Park, 424 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, near the light rail platform. Bring your friends, bring a flashlight, and bring the fun!

Sunday, March 1

Any event that runs for nearly three decades deserves a bit of recognition so the Carnivale De Coronado - 28th Annual Coronado Home Tour is beginning at 9:30 a.m. and running pretty much all day.

There will be a children’s parade, artist booths, artisan vendors and more at this all ages, free event.

Austin-based Terror Pigeon is coming to town to bring their inspirational dance pop costume party extravaganza to The Trunk Space, 1506 NW Grand Ave., Phoenix. Joining them will be Nashville’s Calliope Musicals, The Doyenne, Hug Of War who will be releasing his brand new E.P., and pop terrorists Man-Cat. The show is running 6 to 10 p.m. and tickets are $8.
