Also, X96's annual Big Ass Show has been moved from the Utah State Fairpark to the indoor environs of the Salt Palace, because there's nothing sadder than emo band getting rained on—the mascara runs, they can't see the chord numbers the roadies taped to their guitar necks, etc.
Tonight, maybe take a State Street tour and check out Sound of Urchin at Burt's Tiki Lounge and The Saddle Tramps one block north at the Bar Deluxe. Tomorrow night, all of us in the office are compelled to attend City Weekly's own Linsday Larkin's birthday bash at Orange (533 S. 500 West) or forever sleep with one eye open. Join us, won't you?
