Dec. 6, 2013 — So we missed our Underground Arts calendar last week because we started Thanksgiving weekend a little early. But it’s back with just a couple of gravy stains and a few more pounds.
First Friday night is always a great night for music and arts and on Dec. 6 the first Friday of December, the best one might be at Funny World, 1217 E. Madison Phoenix. The show features Wolvves, TK and The Irresistibles, Help Me Sleep, and Andy Warpigs.
Wolvves is one of the most exciting bands in the Valley right now. The angsty skate punks have been refining their sound according to frontman Aydin Immortal and with a tape to promote, their debut release Live Forever, there is no doubt they’ll be looking to put on a show for the First Friday crowd.
TK and The Irresistibles employ almost the exact same musicians as Wolvves with one glaring difference, T.K. Campo is on the lead instead of Immortal. TK is another fun and loose group that will no doubt put their stamp on the show.
Help Me Sleep is a completely new outfit out of Tucson bringing their tunes to Phoenix for the first time ever. While Andy Warpigs is an experienced Phoenix musician who plays some of the funniest covers and originals in the Valley.
The show is free though donations are encouraged, it is also all ages and BYOB.
Friday, Dec. 6
First Friday Night Live is the Valley’s premier sketch comedy troupe and there is no doubt about it. Kicking off at 11 p.m., the entire ensemble will be hitting the stage for their A Green Christmas With Hot Rock Supajoint. The Firehouse Gallery 1015 N. First St. will be celebrating Christmas with a fact checking Jesus, the ghost of green Christmas past, gingerbread houses and tons of dank. Any event with Supa Joint involved is one worth being at, and him hosting the best sketch comedy show in the land is an absolute can’t miss event. The musical guest is Mother of Sorrows.Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door the show is all ages and byob.

Twenty-three year old purveyor of the Valley’s longest running hip-hop show The Blunt Club, Mouse Powell, will be releasing his new album on Dec. 7 at Tempe’s Club Red 2155 E. University Drive, suite 112. These Are The Good Times, Powell’s sophomore album, was made in collaboration with many of the Valley’s hottest musicians including Jason Devore of Authority Zero, Danny Torgeson of Captain Squeegee, Sean Lee of The Veragroove, and members of Drunken Immortals. For the release show, Powell will perform the album in its entirety with The Veragroove playing the backing tracks. Also performing will be Playboy Manbaby, Cash and The Ref, GLDN GHST, and Wax Society. The show is all ages, doors open at 8 p.m and tickets are $10 and come with a free copy of the album.
Wednesday, Dec. 11
It may not be spelled the same as the Festivus made popular by the infamous Seinfeld episode, but the Fourth Annual Phoestivus celebration allows anyone who wants to participate in “feats of strength,” “airing of grievances,” and fun around a Phoestivus Pole will have their chance. The celebration will be held on succeeding Wednesdays, Dec. 11 and 18 from 4 to 8 p.m., 14 E. Pierce St., Phoenix. Carolers will be entertaining and artists and artisans will join more more than 100 local vendors selling artwork, jewelry, toys, soaps, crafts and gifts.
