•Incubus and Jimmy Eat World at USANA
A new, and eighth as the title will tell you, from Incubus has sparked this tour with Jimmy Eat World. Two X96 staples. One low price. Judah the Lion is opening.
•Twilight Concert Series at Pioneer Park
This week enjoy Solange, yes, her younger sister in what should be a huge turnout, so get there early. If you don’t know her music, you may have seen her in the films “Bring It On: All or Nothing” and “Johnson Family Vacation” like I have.
•”Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk” at The Megaplex at Gateway
Turn It Around: The Story Of East Bay Punk spans over 30 years of the California Bay Area’s punk music history with a central focus on the emergence of Berkeley’s inspiring 924 Gilman music collective. Narrated by Iggy Pop and executive produced by Green Day, Turn It Around: The Story Of East Bay Punk is the definitive telling of this vibrant story, drawing from a wide variety of voices and viewpoints and featuring the music of many of the most famous and infamous punk bands ever.
Green Day and Rancid’s success is just part of the story — the roots of East Bay punk rock go deep.
Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk is now playing in theaters – visit EastBayPunk.Com/Screenings for dates and ticket links. More screenings added soon!

•Avenged Sevenfold at USANA
You can stop holding your breath! The Avenged Sevenfold: The Stage World Tour with A Day to Remember hitches up to the big stage at USANA so you can rock out with whatever junk you happen to have out! BooooYEAAAHHH!
•9th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival at Gallivan Center
Whether you blow glass, bubbles, or gum it’s all good as long as you do it yourself. Three days with over 250 local artisans, DIY engineers, vintage vendors, and craft food creators, the Google Fiber STEM Building, two stages of music and dance performances, local food trucks, and approximately 20,000 attendees. It goes through Sunday and tickets are only $5!
•Food Truck and Brewery Battle at The Gateway
Food trucks and beer for 5 entire hours! It’s glorious! Bring your parents, friends, Tinder hookup date, anyone that likes food, and anyone that like beer who is 21 and over, of course. Taking place at the North end of the Gateway, you can come and try many different food trucks and Utah Breweries and vote for your favorite to send them into infamy and a year’s worth of bragging rights.
•Rancid and Dropkick Murphys at The Great Saltair
This is what you’ve been waiting for. If you read about the next event and think, “F@*k that!” Well, this is the show you should be at.
•311, Blue October, and New Politics at USANA
Much like the neo-circus, always on time and always in the summer, 311 return to throw down at USANA and are bringing along some X96 staples, Blue October and New Politics to get the evening started.
•Willie Nelson at USANA
Before the pot smoke can clear from 311, Willie Nelson will be the puff, puff, passing live a bit longer. Really though, I want to know, who has the stoniest audience: 311 or Willie Nelson.
•Oktoberfest at Snowbird
A chance for me to add another mug to my collection and enjoy a high point brew on a high mountain. Get a brat, some kraut, and watch the lederhosen go round and round in the Chicken Dance. HOW IT IS ALREADY TIME FOR OKTOBERFEST!!!
•The Head and the Heart at Red Butte Garden
You’ve heard them on X96 and now you can see them live…and they look exactly like their band name would suggest: handsome, from the northwest, and smart, yet moving. Because of all of those things, this show is SOLD OUT!
•Lisa Lampanelli at Wiseguys
You know her from Comedy Central Roats and she used to write for Rolling Stone. Tonight, she’ll make you laugh on a Monday.
•The Decemberists at Red Butte Garden
Tales of woe and fancy as Colin Melloy takes that stage with the merry music makers at Red Butte. “Eli the Barrow Boy” and “The Shankill Butchers” will always be some of my totes faves. One time my friend called them “Modest Mouse for pussies” which is one of the most bizarre things I have ever heard. Tickets are not sold out for this, so buy some and snag some cottage cheese, Perrier, and Triskets and roll up to the gardens.
Have an event? Tell Corey about it…
UNTIL NEXT WEDNESDAY…
