July 16, 2014 — Season four of Phoenix’s premier sketch comedy show First Friday Night Live is rapidly approaching and as per usual the creators are making their yearly call out to actors, comics, and anyone else interested in being a part of the show.

Auditions will begin on July 19 and run from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m., to schedule a audition and get the necessary materials contact Michael 23 at It is free to audition and the audition is open to performers of all ages. Though the shows content often skews toward adult.

More information can be found on the Facebook event page.

Friday, July 18

With the hottest part of the summer upon us what better time to take a trip up north than now, and what better reason than for great independent music? The Invincible Grins, Andy Warpigs, and Ray Reeves and the Masters of the Economy are going to be playing at Mia’s Lounge, 26 S. San Francisco St., Flagstaff. The show is 21 and up and has no cover. Getting up to Flag just to beat the heat and have a walk around is a worthwhile venture but with crazy gypsy folk like the Grins, the absurd antics of Andy Warpigs, and the distinct country no western tones of Ray Reeves its just a no brainer on how to beat the heat this weekend, doors open at 7 p.m.

Saturday, July 19

It’s always a rare pleasure to catch a Boss Frog show because their lead singer lives in Tucson. But they will be in action beginning at 7 p.m. releasing a split cassette with the Pro Teens. in a dual Rubber Brother Records / Lollipop Records release. The two bands share quite a few members but they don’t exactly share a sound. With these two far out bands it should be quite and interesting show. Joining them will be Nova Joven, and Brainchild, the show is all ages and has a $5 cover. Find a friend and find The Parliament.

The Lost Leaf, 914 N. Fifth St., made the mistake of giving the The Freaks of Nature a residency on third Saturday’s, and now they must pay the piper. Kicking off at 9 p.m., there is going to be a Weirdo Party featuring performances by The Freaks of Nature, Cherie Cherie, and Burning Palms. The Freaks are one of the most high energy bands in the world, and Cherie Cherie has been growing their reputation as a premier band in the Phoenix Metro. Add in Burning Palms and this 21 and up show is a must attend in the Valley.
