*This calendar is mostly accurate. probably!
•DJ Shadow at The Complex
An originator and full-on original DJ Shadow (Joshua Paul Davis) is showing up at The Complex and with a record collection of over 60,000 albums, he’ll have plenty to say without saying anything. I highly recommend this outing.
•Donny and Marie at Sandy Amphitheatre
Utah’s own Village of the Damned, damned super-talents are taking a break from their Vegas residency at The Flamingo to hang out with the Sandonians for a night of wholesome fun…like Wonder Bread with the crusts lasered off.
•All Time Low at The Complex
All Time Low’s Young Renegades Tour is bringing along SWMRS, Waterparks, and The Wrecks. I am not the biggest All Time Low fan but with The Wrecks and SWMRS on the bill, the ticket price is certainly worth admission.
•Joe Rogan at Wiseguys
One of the biggest podcasts in the world – with an average of 30 million downloads per month, it’s no wonder Joe Rogan sold out in mere minutes after tickets went on sale for these shows at Wiseguys. If you want to go, you’ll have to pay with tickets going as much as $150 each on classifieds. (note: this is a stand-up show, not a podcast taping)
•7th Annual Halloween in Summer Festival in Magna
Does this count as cosplay or just a chance to re-up your candy stash? Taking place on Magna’s Main Street there’s lots going on. We’ll once again have a slew of vampires, jack-o-lanterns, witches, bats, ghosts and other wonderful spooks. We’ll have nearly 150 booths all along Magna Main and down 8950 West. There will be Artists, Prop Makers, Creators, Haunters, Tarot, Paranormal Investigators, Crafters, Witches, Illustrators, Zombie Hunters, Goth Culture, Cosplayers, Makeup Artists, and More! Don’t forget to stop by “The Little Monsters Area” in the parking lot of the Webster Center on the corner of Magna Main and 8950 West. Our entertainment on the main stage has also increased once again thanks to our Main Stage Sponsor, Jerry Seiner North Salt Lake, a Cosplay Contest with Salt Lake Comic Con as our Presenting Sponsor (at the Senior Center), and a kids activity at the Library. There will be a carnival (Town and Country Shows) as part of the “Little Monsters Area” in The Webster Center parking lot, a variety of food, the Boo-Dacious Beer Garden sponsored by Coors Light with second stage entertainment at The Filling Station (The Power Plant), “Scaryoke Under the Scream Tent” at The Copper Miner Saloon sponsored by Bud Light, and All Ages Trick-or-Treating (5-7pm). And that night, we’re hosting our “Costumed Spooktacular Shindig” sponsored by Coors Light inside the Filling Station [21+ w/ID ~ NO cover] with more live entertainment by Bludgeon Muffin, costume contest with a VIP Pass to 2017 Comic Con as part of the Grand Prize, tons of giveaways, free Ghoulish Gourmet courtesy of Nonna’s Pizzeria (for as long as it lasts), and of course cold refreshing drinks to celebrate a successful event!
•Chris Brown at The Gallivan Center
It’s his first Utah performance ever and even with the controversy surrounding his personal life, there’s no denying his talent on stage. Also performing: Kid Ink, Ayo and Teo, and Amine.

•Run for Refugees 5k at Liberty Park
Join us for the 5th annual 5k Fun Run/Walk for Refugees, the kick-off event for World Refugee Day Utah.

For every 4 runners, a scholarship will be provided to a refugee child from Burma to safely attend school at Child Development Center in Thailand. You can also sponsor a child directly by donating to:http://burmamission.org/
