• May the 4th Be With You Celebration at Clark Planetarium

It’s the day I stay off Twitter, but for those of you who long for everything in a galaxy far, far away, Clark Planetarium has teamed up with Alpine Garrison for a party. From 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. enjoy photo ops with Alpine Garrison, Rogue Base, Rocky Mountain Droid builders, and Krayt clan in the lobby, real life-size droids at the first floor exhibits, costume and lightsaber behind-the-designs table at 3rd-floor exhibits.


• X Ambassadors at The Depot

With songs like “Renegades” and “Unsteady” X Ambassadors seemed to come out of nowhere and were suddenly everywhere. Well, you can specifically see them live at The Depot for their Joyful Tour. All-ages show.


•Cinco de Mayo

Amatur night and St. Patrick’s Day cousin holiday will have you pounding tequila as you shout at the bartender for another cerveza. It’s all good as long as your Corona gets its lime, right?


•Free Comic Book Day at Dr. Volt’s

Not only can you snag a free comic book, but everything in the store will be on sale for 20% to 50% off! Maybe I can finally find volume 3 of X-Men Apocolypse. Cosplayers will be hanging out as well.


•Less Than Jake and Face to Face at The Depot

Funny how these Warped Tour staples aren’t on the Warped Tour considering it’s the final roll for that festival, but hey, why nit-pick? I am just going to reminisce about my teenage years. Jukebox Romantics are also on the bill. All-ages show!


•Rocky Mountain Raceways Season Opener

Rocky Mountain Raceway kicks off their historic final season Saturday, May 5th on the America First Credit Union Super Oval! Gates open at 4, with 6 different classes racing all night long!


•Open Streets Salt Lake City

From 10a to 4p 200 south, 300 south, Pierpont, West Temple, 200 West and Pioneer Park will be closed to cars, but still open to those with feet. There will be yoga, local good, live music, games, beverages, and more? Why? So you can make new friends for a night of hitting the town for Cinco de Mayo. Duh! The event is free and the weather should be perfect for enjoy some time downtown.


•Urban Flea Market at The Gateway

One person’s fleas is another person’s pet. Remeber that and check out the opening of the 9th annual Urban Flea Market at The Gateway. More than 100 venders will be out with vintage and antiques that will help you tie the room together. $2 gets you in.


•K. Flay at The Complex

She’s a Grammy winner now so there’s no shocker that this show is sold out, so you’ll have to do some hunting for tickets online. The good news is that she will be back with Thirty Seconds to Mars this summer.


•Sunday Afternoon Cuddle Party at Salt Lake Center for Spiritual Living

I mean, cuddling with strangers. No doubt it’s on your bucket list. The doors open at 4p. They encourage you to wear comfy clothes and bring a treat to share. Now, yes, this sounds like a very interesting process, but rest assured that the Cuddle Party will be led by trained and certified Cuddle Party Facilitators. Whew!


•The Fratellis at The Complex

A staple of my playlists since 2004, the clapable and danceable, The Fratellis are back in Salt Lake and The Complex. Blood Red Shoes is the opener.


•Hall and Oats at Vivint Smart Home Arena

Because your kiss, your kiss, is on my….go ahead and fill that one in. Hall and Oats have hits for days and this will no doubt turn into a huge sing-along more than a concert, which is just fine. Go ahead and show up late, though. Train is opening.


There’s always more on our YUGE calendar.
