• Oliver Tree at The Depot
The beloved YouTuber and scooter enthusiast, Oliver Tree, returns to Salt Lake on his “Goodbye Farewell Tour” for this all-ages event at The Depot.
• Brian Wilson and The Zombie at the Sandy Amphitheatre
It’s the grooviest thing that has ever happened in Sandy. Freak out, man! It’s the final show in the venue’s 2019 concert series. Oh, and if I haven’t mentioned this enough this year – they sell beer there now.
• Margaret Cho at Wiseguy
You’ll have 4 shots at seeing the very funny Margaret Cho at Wiseguys downtown tonight and tomorrow night. Get there early to check out the very cool new lounge at Wiseguys for some pre-yuckin’ it up drinks.
• Glen Hansard at the Eccles Theatre
You’ll be able to smell the tortured brooding before the Irish performer even hits the stage. Best known from the movie “Once”, you’re in for a very emotional event. If you haven’t seen “Once”, you should.
• Gem Fair at the Mountain American Expo Center
“Look at all these jewels!” That’s what you’ll say to yourself when you walk in the ginormous, sparkling room full of gems and jewels and the people who love them. Follow the “More Info” button here to get buy-1-get-1 tickets. Woo hoo! Goes through Sunday.
• Urban Arts Festival at The Gallivan Center
A whole lot of music (including Slick Rick on Saturday night), art, dance, projects and no doubt food trucks and beer (a running theme with these things) going on today and tomorrow at The Gallivan Center.
• Punch Bowl Social Grand Opening
Yes, another place to drink and play games…this time only those 21+ will be allowed, though. What a novel idea! Punch Bowl Social will open in The Gateway where Barnes and Noble used to live. From the website, “Join your fellow do-gooding, fun-hunting friends by purchasing your ticket to this exclusive, Grand Opening Private Event and 100% of the proceeds will go to Encircle. Ticket purchase includes 3 full hours of great food, next-level gaming, live art installation and a special drink menu available for purchase. Ain’t no party in town like this one so get your friends, get your tickets and let’s go!”

• Blacklight Run at the Utah State Fairpark
If running with your dog in the daylight sounds so lame (it’s not) then you should get down to the Utah State Fairpark and help them clean up the mess from the state fair (kidding). The Blacklight Run is “a unique night 5K fun run focused less on speed and more on UV Neon Glowing fun with friends and family. Glowing participants come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; every participant will get Glowed™ and has the time of their life. Whether you are an avid runner or a walk around the park walker, the 3 miles of the Blacklight Run™ course will have you glowing and waiting for the next one!” If you want to stand out you should check out their page for rules, price, etc.
