The Best Shows You Don’t Know: It Gets Weirdfest, Coffee At Kerr, Latino Comedy Fest Hosted By Guillermo Robles At Tempe Center For The Arts


By Staff Report
Modern Times Magazine

Sept. 25, 2013 — Shhhhh … For Us Presents It Gets Weirdfest is this weekend and this event is going to be absolutely ridiculous. Now if you didn’t know, For Us Presents was co-founded by our Music/Arts editor Jeff Moses, and Modern Times is one of the event’s biggest sponsors. But quite frankly when an event is this big and this underground all at the same it just makes sense for it to make the calendar.

The event is taking place at The Firehouse Gallery, 1015 N. First St., and their next door neighbor Bud’s Glass Joint, 1021 N. First St., beginning at 3 p.m. Sept. 27 and continuing on for the next two days concluding around midnight on Sept. 30.

The event will be featuring more than 40 of Phoenix’s best bands including headliners Travis James and the Acrimonious Assembly of Arsonists, Supa Joint, DJentrification, The Haymarket Squares and Wooden Indian. As well as a headlining set by legendary Arizona performance artists The Strange Family Circus.

The event will also feature stand up comedy, sketch comedy, dance, poetry, live art, contests, drum circles, and much more. Furthermore each day of the festival will be opened by a free yoga session provided by the instructors at The Space.

The event is all ages, and BYOB. Tickets can be purchased for $8 per day from For Us Presents, or directly from your favorite band playing. For Us Presents is also selling  three day tickets for $18.

Wednesday, Sept. 25
The Kerr Cultural Center, 6110 N. Scottsdale Road, has been hosting an informal series of performance and speaker based events featuring mostly Arizona Opera performers, but also a small selection of other guest artists as well. This week’s addition of Coffee at Kerr will feature HMS Pinafor by Gilbert and Sullivan and will take place at 9:30 a.m. The cover is a can of food or sealed personal item to be donated to a local food bank, RSVP required.

Friday Sept. 27
The Tempe Arts Center will present the Latino Comedy Fest as part of the Tempe Comedy Concert Series at the Tempe Center For The Arts, 700 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Tempe. Host Guillermo Robles has assembled “all of his funny friends” for a night of Latin-flavored comedy. Although it has the “Latino” label, organizers say the event will still be funny for everyone. Performances will be provided by Guillermo Robles, Anthony Linares, Floyd Haas, Colleen Purtle, Travis Clark, Rufus, Manny Hernandez and more.

Chapter 18: “This Could be the Last Time”

The galaxy-class astral catwomen paint by numbers way out in the Fornax Void, and grease some filthy-dirty alien werewolves in the process.

Beyond The Hill

An exceedingly intelligent homeless amnesiac finds a dear friend on the streets who is not really from the neighborhood, but beyond the hill.
