What's Going On Around Phoenix?

I'm starting a new "thing" here. I want to start sharing local events during the week. I know there's been several times that I found out about some event after the fact or when its already too late to plan.

So here we go!

The first installment of What's Going On Around Phoenix?!

This weekend there is quite a bit! Let's start with what I'm doing today!

Black Violin is playing at Chandler Center for the Arts. I can't wait to report back. I'm taking my 10 year old son Eric. He is interested in violin so I'm taking him. Maybe we can spark something and find a new interest for him! I'll love it either way.
Virtuoso violinists Wil B and Kev Marcus meld highbrow and pop culture through a fusion of classical, jazz, hip-hop, blues and R&B. Joining the classically trained violinists is DJ TK on turntables and together the trio smashes musical stereotypes and enthralls lovers of Bach and Beyoncé.

Free First Friday Nights at Childrens Museum of Phoenix
My mother in law took my kiddos last month here, and they had a blast. More towards the younger kids. My son is 10 and he's probably too old to go. But hey, we're all kids at heart, right? Free of charge tonight from 5 to 9pm. This happens the first Friday of each month!
