I love Celebrity as a venue and wish it got used more often.
Most recently I sat second row and watched Erykah Badu on the rotating stage, unbelievable show.
I've also seen Wu-Tang, Deftones, O.A.R. (dont ask), Dilated Peoples w/ Jurassic 5 all with the rotating stage.
My favorite, however, was Primus doing a two set show wherein one of the sets they played Sailing the Seas of Cheese in it's entirety. Les Claypool walking along the edge of the stage abusing his bass was something to see.
Where's my ticket? Can't depend on a ginger for anything...
I ended up buying 5 tickets for the Phoenix show, 2 people backed out last minute, and Sarah couldn't go because she wasn't feeling well. Lucky for me the show was sold out and I was able to get rid of the tickets pretty easily at the venue, but it was a pain in the ass so I decided going forward I am only buying tickets for myself, Sarah and me, or if someone gives me money for their ticket ahead of time.
i wound up at a bone thugs and harmony show and watched the three vomit inducing openers on the rotating stage before i left. also the only show i've ever been to there but i thought the venue was pretty fucking cool.
03/26/10 - Chamillionaire, Paul Wall @ Venue of Scottsdale
03/26/10 - Fangs, the Cullens, Russian Arms & Optics @ Trunkspace 03/27/10 - Devendra Banhart @ Clubhouse
03/27/10 - Sergio Mendoza Y La Orkestra @ Sail Inn
The Friday bill at the Trunkspace consists of local bands which're interesting (I've mentioned The Cullens here before; a (jokey) Twilight-themed horror punk band; if I were in the mood for a show that is likely where I'd be.
Not the greatest of weekends, I must admit.

Reason: Venue change.
I don't think I'm hosting a 2016 collaborative playlist.
