Last-minute Friday night plans don’t get much easier or cheaper than this. 

IMP Fest, this month’s Second Friday Night Out block party in downtown Mesa, brings seven live bands to the district, including Darkness Dear Boy, the Tractor Pull Divas, the Mahogany Birds and Todd Owens.

In addition, you’ll find about 70 art and vendor booths set up along either side of the street and special goings-on and discounts at area merchants and eateries. There’s also a giveaway for a brand-new Axl Mayhem electric guitar; contest entries are free.

DETAILS >> 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday. Along Main Street in downtown Mesa. Free admission. (602) 318-5689 or
