    Also the Paper Chase're opening that Surfer Blood show, which has won me over. I don't know Surfer Blood, though. What's their story.

    What time did you say on Saturday night? 9ish?

    In an unrelated local note, it looks like the Yucca expansion is complete. Sounds interesting.

    Here's the blog about it.

    Tempe's Yucca Tap Room has been a Tempe dive bar favorite for years, especially for its live music. (Photo by Benjamin Leatherman)

    But now there's a whole lot more on tap.

    Earlier this month, owner Rodney Hu unveiled the Yucca's expansion into the space next door, a craft beer and whiskey lounge that can be accessed separately from outside as well as from inside the existing venue. It's a quieter atmosphere, with pool tables and lounge seating.

    Now, there are 16 beers on tap (in addition to 12 on tap in the original bar) and 140 different bottled beers, which run the gamut of microbrew and import faves -- Lagunitas, Bear Republic, Stone, Delirium Tremens, Deschutes, Lost Coast, Rogue, and many more.

    "Pretty much every beer that was at the Strong Beer Festival, we have," says Hu.



    There's also a selection of booze from microdistilleries such as Dry Fly Vodka and Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey, and aged whiskeys from Jameson, Glenlivet, and Chivas.

    "We're still in our soft opening and playing around with the mix," Hu says, who plans to rotate the offerings regularly and also host tastings. A grand opening is planned for March 1, and a Big Sky beer tasting is scheduled for March 4.

    In about a month, Hu also hopes to begin serving food, including sandwiches, calzones, pizzas, and fried snacks.

    The Yucca Tap Room is open daily from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m.

    I went to Black Forest Mill on a Sat night about 1 1/2 months ago. It was pretty fun and cheap drinks. And it's not too far either, just straight down 48th St for me.

    i'll take a stab at this...

    i love the blunt club, which is not an actual club, but a weekly that is thrown at different clubs. they are on myspace & facebook i believe, but it's mainly hip-hop, dnb & dubstep.

    i had fun the one time i went to cherry pit lounge on mill for UK thursdays. i knew people who were djing though and i can't speak to what it's like on other nights.

    i have had fun at myst, though it's not for the people that's for sure. it's also expensive, but of all the scottsdale bullshit clubs, i have had the most fun here & at the pussycat lounge as well. axis/radius is douche central so only go if you REALLY want to see someone.

    bar smith is a neat venue downtown & on saturdays they usually do "solstice", which is a house music weekly.

    aura is a good psytrance monthly, add them on facebook. they usually do their events at hookah type lounges or places with middle-eastern food and tend to have things like belly dancers and the more "hippie" edm crowd.

    if you are REALLY into the hipster scene you would probably have a blast at the rogue in south scottsdale. it's a tiny place, but lots of people swear by it. i just find a lot of the people obnoxious and the one time i went NO ONE was dancing and they were looking at us snobby like because we were dancing.

    as far as concerts... the marquee theatre in tempe is the best place in MY opinion to see your average touring band. they won't house the HUGE arena type shows, but they tend to have a good mix of indie, edm and other types of bands. i personally HATE the dodge theatre as it sounds like there's a giant mute on the stage and it looks smaller than it is, but some people like it. the jobing.com & US airways arenas are both good for larger shows. avoid the clubhouse if you can, place is SHITTY. i've heard good things about the rhythm room, but i've unfortunately never been.

    there are lots of dive type bars that will host weeklies or one-off events, so you have to make sure to keep an eye out for events on facebook or something.

    *EDITED*

    if you're into freak dancing like it ain't no thing and if you're a girl getting felt up all night, head out to the buzz nightclub at scottsdale & shea. i only went there once with some girls from work and i could tell multiple stories about that night for days. wall to wall bitches n' hoes!

    devil's martini in north scottsdale is definitely the place to go if you like an older crowd who's interested in status from what i've gathered. i've never been, i just know a lot of people who have gone there or invited me there. it's kinda far for me too.

    kazimierz in the old town scottsdale area is fucking awesome if you can afford it. it's a wine bar, but they do have decent priced appetizers and nibbles. it's not a place to go for a full meal in my opinion. i've had a different experience there every time i went too which is rare. i've seen some serious flamenco dancers and various old jazz singers with completely different bands. i really like this place and whenever anyone asks me where they should take a date, i always suggest this place.

    gammage auditorium in tempe, arizona was one of frank lloyd wright's last designs. most major musicals and plays tour here. ASU also puts on events as well. i've even seen hip hop so anything goes really!!!

    Marooko, don't worry, you have to yell in here. Move to AZ!

    So, anything fun to do on Wednesdays? My wife is going to start having Thursdays off. We had plans tonight, but they got cancelled. Now it's 9 and we're both awake for once, so she wants to go out.
