First off, we take a look at the Trunk Space - found here: http://www.thetrunkspace.com/
From the lemur (?) on the front page, you know you're in for a unique experience here. Each night, you'll find something different at the Trunk Space - from local, soon to be international hip hop stars Shining Soul, to Sea Witch Plays the Death Star - poetic ukulele tunes from Milwaukee. Variety is the name of the game here. From their site: "music, experimental theater, performance, storytelling, music, puppets, weird stuff, circus side show acts, fine art, handmade gifts, & espresso drinks" - and they sell vinyl too !
Many clubs, lounges, bars, and venues around the Valley are predictable, and they bank on being so. You'll find a very specific crowd and sound in Scottsdale, Tempe, even downtown itself. The Trunk Space bucks that convention, however, in the name of art and something different for a town that's sorely lacking in such.
If you're looking for something that almost definitely haven't seen before, then the Trunk Space is your place !
