Sept. 22 Concert to Feature McFarlane Toys Giveaway
Friday, September 14, 2007

If you have been living under a rock, you may not have heard that we have opened our second retail store in Arizona - Glendale to be specific, the Westgate City Center to be precise.

For 10 evenings this summer and fall, the WaterDance Plaza at Westgate will be transformed into a premier concert venue, as Westgate and title sponsor Nissan host a series of concerts featuring both national recording artists and local musical acts. The McFarlane store will be providing action figures at selected concerts as free giveaways to the crowd.

Featuring live music from a variety of genres, the Nissan Concert Series at Westgate will see bands playing concerts in the open air on the one-of-a-kind plaza, which also features a $6 million Bellagio-inspired dancing water feature and a ring of "Times Square" style media boards, which tower 100 feet over the plaza.

On Sept. 22, locally based national recording artists the Phunk Junkeez will host their national record release party for their upcoming CD, "Hydro Phonic." This is the sixth album for the Arizona band - known for fusing punk, funk and rock music styles. The Phunk Junkeez fan base has supported them throughout 15 years of touring worldwide, playing shows with bands like No Doubt, 311, Green Day and Linkin Park to packed venues. The band’s high-energy mix of hip-hop and rock fusion is sure to bring an electric vibe to the venue.

Featuring local rock bands as opening acts, this show is FREE to the public and open to all ages. Food and beverage vendors will be set up on the Plaza, and those showing 21 and over ID will be given a wristband to purchase alcoholic beverages.

If you are in the area, come out and support the Phoenix Coyotes on Sept. 22 as they host the Dallas Stars. Then, exit the north end of the arena and enjoy the concert.

And of course, be sure to check out the McFarlane store!
