*This calendar is mostly accurate. probably!
•Rogue Wave at Urban Lounge
It’s the 10 anniversary of their album Asleep at Heaven’s Gate and they’ll be damned if Oakland’s Rogue Wave isn’t going to play it for you. They are bringing L.A.’s Business of Dreams along with them. 21+
•Tune-Yards at The Depot
Indie critics have been targeting their affections for the Tune-Yards for nearly a decade. If you’re late to the party, they just relased their new album I can feel you creep inot my private life in January. My Brightest Diamond opens. 21+
•Midgets with Attitude at Metro Music Hall
Midget wrestling is still a thing and it’s coming home to Zion as Meto Music Hall going on 14 years of Midget Wrestling Entertainment (MWE). Showcasing the athletic skills of little people, MWE has been featured on the TV show Bones, Pit Boss, Full Throttle, and more. There’s always “and more”, isn’t there?
•Tony Hinchcliffe at Wiseguys
The Golden Pony, Tony Hinchcliffe, who you probably know if you listen to Joe Rogan’s podcast, is coming to Wiseguys Downtown with shows tonight and tomorrow. Big on the roasting scene as a writer for the Comedy Central Roasts and known from him special One Shot on Netflix, it’s your shot to catch him before he really explodes.
•Tour de Brewtah
The 9th Annual Tour de Brewtah combines cycling and beer. Hey, did you know you can still get a DUI on a bicycle? Keep that in mind you sloppy heathen as you pedal around our sacred city. The “crawl” kicks off at Library Square where you can pick up the route map and finish up at Beer Bar/Bar X with live music and food. It’s a 90’s TV theme, “Mad About Brew” (get it?), so I hope to see a lot of Fresh Princes and Seinfelds and Beavises. A portion of the proceeds goes to the National Ability Center, Utah Brewers Guild, Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective, and more.
•Monster Energy AMA Supercross FIM World Championship at Rice-Eccles Stadium
With that man adjectives, this had better be good. You know it will be. Amazing athletes compete before they hit the final. Show up early and hit the pits to meet the riders before the action. If you’re fast, you can still enter to win tickets here.
•of Montreal at Urban Lounge
Perhaps the most interesting live show you will ever see, I suspect it will be. of Montreal will be the brightest, loudest, most exciting thing going on anywhere in this entire state and you should really go. Straigh outta Athens, Georgia! 21+
•Rainbow Kitten Surprise at The Depot
I know nothing about this band and I don’t want to. I just want to know their name until I seem them live. Then, and only then, do I really feel like I should know what a band called Rainbow Kitten Surprise sounds like. Also, I am told it’s an all-ages show, but I feel like Rainbow Kitten Surprise is more fun if you’re at least 21 to 35. That’s just me.
•Morbid Angel at The Complex
Have an event? Tell Corey about it…
