Get to the Urban Lounge and get some punk on you. Since returning from their self-imposed hiatus in 2008, face to face has been on a tear, touring worldwide and writing tons of new music; Protection is their third full-length in five years, outpacing the output of many of their peers and devotees alike. face to face still has a lot to say, and the band has no plans on slowing down.

•Friday Night Flicks at Liberty Park
The movie should start around 9 p.m., so bring your blankets and snack. “Ghostbusters” will be shown. I really hope they are showing this one and not the travesty of a film released last year.

Celebrating 10 years, the Ogden Music Festival has grown into just the kind of thing you’re looking for to start your summer off on a high note, whether its high, lonesome bluegrass or some hot licks on the fiddle.

•USA vs. Venezuela at Rio Tinto
I thought they did this in Spanish Fork, but okay. On May 27th in Ogden, the world’s happiest transformational event will take place. Holi represents the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. A magnificent sight to any passerby, vibrant colors infuse the air. Color-goers often wear white to make the colors even more vibrant, but wear what you want! The Festival of Colors is a festival of singing, dancing, color-throwing, but it also creates community, harmony, and personal transformation. Come bury your hatchets and throw your worries to the wind!
•Modest Mouse at The Complex
