Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price


Friday, Nov. 11
Denver natives Vaux will hit up the Modified Arts, 407 E. Roosevelt St., Phoenix, with their unique solid rock sound (think Thrice plus Queens of the Stone Age) on Friday, Nov. 11. The band especially needs love this time out, because as of Oct. 31, the quartet parted with its label, Lava/Atlantic. Vaux just finished an impressive new album, Beyond Virtue, Beyond Vice, which was scheduled to hit stores this month, but the label is holding the record hostage. It's like a bad break up, you left your favorite CDs at his house, and now he's giving you a "well, that's too bad, it's mine now." Bassist Ryder Robinson says he convinced the band will get the album back and be able to put it out themselves, he just doesn't know when that will happen. In the meantime, you can watch the band annihilate the Modified at 8 p.m. Friday. Ticket cost is TBA. For details, scope

Sunday, Nov. 13
Phoenix Fashion Week kicks off at Four White Walls, 1023 Grand Ave., Phoenix, with the gallery's trunk show with a slew of local designers flaunting fashions (for sale, of course). In addition to the sweet threads available, Four White Walls is going all out to make this an event by offering complimentary massages. You read that right, FREE MASSAGES. Plus, to make sure everyone feels pretty after a relaxing massage, makeup artist Cherelynn Richey will be giving free demos, as well. The event runs from noon to 5 p.m. and it's free.

Wednesday, Nov. 16
Dying to understand why that girl in your psychology class refuses to shop at Wal-Mart -- and makes a big deal about it? Hit up the screening of "Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price" at the Paper Heart, 750 NW Grand Ave., Phoenix, on Wednesday, Nov. 16. The documentary by Robert Greenwald details the "retail giant's assault on families and American values," says the film's Web site. The feature-length picture shares the personal stories and everyday lives of families affected by Wal-Mart. For example, an employee of the low-price store is forced to use public assistance to provide health insurance for her two young children because Wal-Mart doesn't offer her that benefit. If you want to get the big picture, the doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the film screens at 8:30 p.m. More details are at
