• Brian Jonestown Massacre at Metro Music Hall
They are worth remembering as the “villain” in the documentary Dig! that surrounded their relationship with The Dandy Warhols. If you haven’t seen it, see it. Should be a good concert.
•90’s Bar Crawl
Not to be undone by last month’s 90’s bar crawl, this month’s bar crawl hopes you held on to you 90’s cosplay from the last time around. According to the websites, there will be drink specials for participants at various bars with registration ranging from $20 to $85. For that price, I honestly have no idea what you get as the website is offering up alot of “TBD.” Ummm, go for it. I guess.
•May Mania Demolitions Derby at Days of ’47 Arena at the Utah State Fairpark
Band, crash, and octane as the revving rolls, you might be lucky enough to catch a hubcap or fender. Utahans love their controlled car crashes. This 2-Day Show will have OVER 90 cars fighting it out for $60,000 in Prize Money!
IRON cars, Front Wheel Drive Cars, Farm Trucks and Passenger Cars! A Great Family Fun Event!
•D.O.A. at Metro Music Hall
Legendary Canadian punk rockers hit Metro Music Hall. They’ve influenced bands from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Rancid!
•MGMT at The Union Events Center
They have come a very long way since “Electric Feel” buy have held a fan base by always making the unexpected when it comes to music. MGMT is touring on their latest album, Little Dark Age.
•Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness at The Depot

•Pedro the Lion at Urban Lounge
90’s artist from Seattle drops into the Urban Lounge. I know what you’re thinking: why the hell do all these bands roll through Salt Lake on a Tuesday? Well, that’s just the mid-market curse.
