•Depeche Mode at USANA

It’s always a great night when Depeche Mode rolls through Salt Lake. Usually, it’s under a ceiling, but we get them under the stars tonight. Touring on their new album “Spirit” they have been playing a lot of new songs on the playlist this tour, from this album and “Delta Machine” and I think that’s a good thing for those who have seen them a few times. The opening band is the Los Angeles band, Warpaint, who will be worth getting there early for. There are still tickets available, so get ’em.

•Chris D’Elia at Wiseguys

People hate handsome comedians for some reason but love handsome people that aren’t comedians. We can talk about why, but I am pretty sure it was discussed well enough hereChris D’Elia is quickly becoming one of the most sought after comedians and actors in the comedy world.
D’Elia starred as “Danny” for 3 seasons on the NBC’s Undateable. On stage, D’Elia continues to cement his status as a force in standup comedy. He is a regular at Hollywood comedy clubs—where he performs multiples times a week—and continues to tour the US and Canada to sold-out crowds.

•Andrew Bird at Twilight Concert Series

Only 2 shows left and the winter comes.  Former Squirrel Nut Zipper, Andrew Bird, will sing his songwriting in Pioneer Park. His association with Fiona Apple makes him infinitely cooler than if he didn’t know her. Just like me…since I don’t know Ms. Apple I am less cool than I would be if I knew her. Also, there is an afterparty at Gracie’s.

•Utah Renaissance Faire at Thanksgiving Point

All I can think is the Lannister kids making more kids when I hear about anything Renaissance thanks to Game of Thrones. Soooo…go with your siblings, I guess. Not really though! Let me pull this paragraph out of the gutters of King’s Landing and just go with what I always say, “I’m larp enough. I’m larp enough and gosh darn it, I’m larp enough.”

•Salt Lake Climbing Festival

Because that rock won’t climb itself! It’s going down…err, up, hopefully, at Brighton. Seriously, you can’t gain your utah cred unless you go through a climbing phase, especially if you’re over 30. No, a climbing gym membership doesn’t count.

•Foreigner and Cheap Trick at USANA

I want to know what love it. You want to know what love is. Seriously though, my dad asked me to include this. If you miss Cheap Trick, just head down to your favorite strip club and give it a few. You’ll hear some. Still, the best Coors Lite pairing I can think of on a Saturday.

•Loveloud Music Festival at Brent Brown Ballpark

Neon Trees, Imagine Dragons, Krewella and more all in the name of love. LOVELOUD creates events which foster conversation and deeper understanding in communities about what it means to truly love and accept our LGBTQ+ friends and family. Even the LDS Church gave this show the thumbs up!

•Mayweather vs. Macgregor

My money says I don’t have enough money to go. My brain says I don’t know enough about boxing or MMA to know anything about who will win, but everyone that seems to have money and know things are going for team Mayweather. Either, this is a sporting event even the most cynical of us have to be a bit curious about! There are watch parties going on everywhere.
