Yes, it’s mid-July and we’re all feelin’ a little hot, hot, hot! Let’s see if we can cool off with some cool events this week.
Scottsdale Fashion Square is hosting Point of View at Wonderspaces from Tuesday through Sunday. Point of View is an all age art show featuring thirteen extraordinary installations from artists around the world. Stay cool and experience this first in a series of shows at the 16,000 square foot Wonderspaces Arizona.
In Glendale on Tuesday, Canadian born pop singer songwriter, award-winning musical sensations Shawn Mendes AND Alessia Cara will be performing their hearts out for us at Gila River Arena. Yes, please.
Phoenix is bringing the laughs Wednesday through Saturday with the World Series of Comedy at Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy. This is one of the weeklong satellite contests happening throughout the year in the U.S. and Canada where comedians compete to qualify to perform at The Main Event show in Las Vegas in September. How cool is that...a whole week to drink, dine and laugh.
Tempe Center for the Arts is featuring the classic musical comedy....The Pajama Game starring local favorite newsman Cory McCloskey headlining the show. I’ll be honest, I’ve never heard of this musical before but it does sound pretty fun. Performances start on Thursday and runs through Sunday. As if Cory McCloskey wasn’t draw enough, this production from Scottsdale Musical Theater Company also has a 20 piece live orchestra. Cool indeed.
The coolness continues on Thursday at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix with RISK! RISK! is a live show and podcast where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public, hosted by Kevin Allison. The award-winning live show happens monthly and the weekly RISK! podcast gets over two million downloads each month. Dang, that’s almost as many downloads as this podcast. Keep working guys! Anyways, the show has also been cited as “jaw-dropping, hysterically funny, and just plain touching.” Ahh, definitely too cool NOT to go to this one folks!
The Town of Queen Creek invites you to celebrate Park and Recreation month on Saturday with their Splash Pad Luau Party at Mansel Carter Oasis Park. Trust me, bring the whole family to this epicly ginormous park, you won’t be disappointed. Can you say huge shipwreck-themed splash pad and five acre fishing lake? PLUS, there’s gonna be food, music and Hawaiian themed games. Aloha.
Chandler Center for the Arts is hosting our grand finale of events this week on Saturday. Oh my goodness guys, I am working hard at not breaking into song right now! Okay...Kansas born, singer songwriter, guitarist, activist, vocal powerhouse and one of America’s favorite female rockers...Melissa Etheridge will be in the house. Yes, Melissa, we know you are The Only One and we will definitely Come To Your Window.
