August 5, 2015 — Heavy Metal Television, the brainchild of Eric Braverman and others in the Phoenix metro is expanding once again, and is looking for three new VJs. The service will host an open-audition from 3 to 6 p.m. at Zia Records Exchange, 1850 W. Camelback Road, Phoenix.
“If you or someone you know has the gift of gab and the necessary head-banging noggin to interview superstars of the genre and talk to a black death metal fan without incurring angering their overlords THIS AUDITION IS FOR YOU!!” according to a press release announcing the event.
The event will be judged by: Braverman; drummer for Sacred Reich, Greg Hall; a writer for another local publication; and former manager of Guns N’ Roses Alan Niven. The top three will get the gig. Others will get Heavy Metal Swag and more.

Aug. 5 to 9
If you haven’t yet gotten to see Legally Blonde The Musical at 7701 W. Paradise Lane, Peoria — it’s been running since July 10 — there’s only a few days left. Until Aug. 9, catch the story of Delta Nu sorority president Elle Woods as she crosses the country on a mission to find love at Harvard Law School. For more information, visit http://azbroadway.org/.
It might be hot as hell — figuratively, of course — in the Phoenix metro right now, but thankfully we have air conditioned nature of sorts here in the Sonoran Desert. The Usery Park Nature Center, 3939 N. Usery Pass Road, Mesa, will host a screening of the Disney classic, The Living Desert. There are scorpions dancing. Need we say more? Cost is $6 per car. For more information, visit the park website.
Cultures like different things sometimes, other times, they like the same things but don’t know it. Such might be the case with Yuri who will bring her music to Celebrity Theatre, 440 N. 32nd St., Phoenix. For those not in the know, she is a platinum blonde with a wondrous sense of style who has been big since 1985. Some might call her the Mexican Madonna and they just might be right.

The Cosmonauts Sketch Comedy Troupe is from the Phoenix metro and is sure to get folks giggling Aug. 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m. at Tempe Center for the Arts Studio, 700 W. Rio Salado Pkwy., Tempe.

Aug. 14 to 30
The Valley Youth Theatre, 525 N. First St., Phoenix, will present Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat through the back-end of August — which is fitting since it is as hot as Egypt in the Phoenix metro. All kidding aside, the theatre troupe promises the production will be a, “little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll!” For more information, visit http://www.herbergertheater.org/calendar/
Brooklyn-based The Drums will bring their polished act to the Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. Second Ave. The band is booked to upcoming festival performances at Outside Lands and FYF Festival. See them before they get big or they break-up. For more information, visit Crescent Ballroom.
