What happens when an alternative newsweekly and an underground bar get together? True stories – and drinks. That’s the tagline for Bar Flies, a monthly event co-sponsored by Phoenix New Times and Valley Bar. Held on Thursday night at the music hall at Valley Bar in downtown Phoenix, Bar Flies features writers of all backgrounds performing their work – sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always memoir. And always an experience, accompanied by a theme and a playlist. The Bar Flies podcast brings you a taste of that, minus the drinks.
