The next After Hours is coming November 20, 2015!

Someone pointed out that we never updated this site after the last Ignite Phoenix After Hours wrapped up. It just took a while for all the charges to get dropped, the craziness to die down, and for us to be allowed back into the country. Or maybe we just forgot in all the event fantasticness…

After Hours #4 was a blast, and we’re doing it again on November 20th. We will be returning to The Mint, too, because they handled us oh-s-ell last year. This site and our Facebook page are the places to watch for details. We hope to see you there, and thanks for supporting Ignite!

Event details

  • Admission: Tickets are currently SOLD OUT. However, there are always a few people who can’t go at the last minute. We will be guiding them to our Facebook page, so keep an eye on that page to find tickets or a hot date. Also, remember to bring your ID since this is a 21+ event.
  • Times: Doors open at 6:000 p.m. on Friday, November 14th, and the show will start at 7:00 p.m.
  • Parking: Click here for a parking map. The Mint is located at 7373 E. Camelback Road on Camelback just east of Scottsdale Road. You can use street parking around the club, the parking garage on 4377 W. Wells Fargo Ave., or valet at the W Hotel west of The Mint.
  • Food: Things may get a little hot and steamy at IPAH, so The Mint has cooked up some special dishes to follow suit. The menu will include jalapeno mac and cheese, chicken strips and fries, and vegetarian egg rolls with sweet and sour sauce.
  • Drinks: The Mint has a full bar to fuel the party. Cash is preferred, so stop by the bank on your way there or use the on-site ATM.
  • Attire: Whether you want to dress to the nines, pull out your banana hammock, or go topless (yes, really), anything goes at IPAH. Most people will be casual, but go on with your bad self and dress in whatever makes you feel good! Just make sure to wear comfortable shoes because seating is limited.
  • Get social: Follow our Facebook page for updates, and use #IPAH4 on your posts at the event. Remember – no pictures or video are allowed without permission from the After Hours team.

In true Ignite Phoenix fashion, tickets to After Hours #4 went faster than your first time (hey-o!). We’re officially sold out, but if you want to get your little hands on one of these golden tickets, watch the Ignite Phoenix After Hours Facebook page in the coming weeks.

People often contact us when they can’t attend at the last minute or if they have an extra ticket. We’ll be guiding them to our Facebook page, where they can post a message and find a new owner or a hot date.

So, don’t put away those assless chaps you were going to wear quite yet. Keep an eye on that page, and we hope to see you (and your chaps) on the 14th.

You dirty, morbid, naughty, brave people. You sent in so many crazy submissions for Ignite Phoenix After Hours #4 that it took HOURS to narrow them down. After many drinks, heated discussions, and an awkward run-in with a priest, we finally have our official line-up of speakers! From serious to sassy and “Oh cool!” to “Oh HELL no!” there will be a little something for everyone on November 14th.

Meet the people who will be baring their souls (and twisted minds) for you at After Hours #4, and mark your calendars to buy tickets when they go on sale next Saturday, October 25, at 10:00 a.m.

What’s your secret passion? Everybody has one, and we want to hear yours.

Ignite Phoenix After Hours is the big sister show to Ignite Phoenix. It uses the same 5 minutes/20 slides format you know and love but this is your opportunity to let your wild side show through. Regular Ignite Phoenix is an all-ages show so the topics have to be PG-13 or cleaner. At After Hours, there are almost no limits (except no sales pitches!). This is where we talk about taboo topics, use profanity, and graphic images are allowed on the screen. You can talk about sex, drugs, religion, death – whatever revs your engine. Perhaps you want to talk about how to pick the perfect condom, the history of curse words, what it’s like to be an ex-cult member, or what it takes to transform yourself into a drag performer.

Ignite Phoenix After Hours #4 will be on Friday, November 14th at 7pm at The Mint in Scottsdale. This is an adult show that takes place at an adult location so all presenters and attendees must be at least 21 years old.

Nervous about submitting? Don’t be! The Ignite Phoenix audience is the most supportive audience you’ll ever meet. If something turns you on, they’ll be into it with you. For extra protection, we don’t video tape this show and we give you the option to use an alias.

If you’re thinking about submitting, check out the application. It’s quick and painless. And we all have that friend with a unique kink, experience, or belief that belongs on the Ignite Phoenix After Hours stage so tell them to submit too!

If you have any last minute questions, shoot us an email but get your application for Ignite Phoenix After Hours in by Friday, October 10th at 11:59pm!
