[Music] Home for the holiday? You're done with the familial obligation; now it's you time. Here's your electro-pop, chick-rock, drag queen, punk-show-filled weekend.
Trapp Door (615 W. 100 South)
Thanksgiving night's foremost party, "Dance Evolution" is packed wall to wall with the uni-sexiest mix of culture you didn't know we had. This is the place to escape and dance your trypto-fanny off. DJ/DC spins the hottest jams of urban electro-pop with hosts Jake and Justice commencing your unanticipated weekend. Door at 9 p.m., $5 cover. BUT, if you don "oldy-timey" costume for this Inuit v. Pilgrim party, your admission is free.
Monk's (19 E. 200 South)
Is live chick-rock your thing? Head to this bomb shelter-turned-venue for a sweet Salt Lake City treat. Ever-elusive regional beloved Andale! graces the stage with front siren Memorie Morrison’s melodic tales of anxiety and job resentment. Opener Blackhole is … how do you say in Utah? … AWESOME. Door at 10 p.m., $5 cover.
Mynt Lounge, (63 W. 100 South)
For you who crave a more extra-ordinary edge, Crush is the club. Native "Glamor Tycoon" Matthew Landis hosts this see-and-be-scene. Local legend D.J. Nick James will be announcing plans for the super exclusive speakeasy "Night at the Disco." No one throws down underground N.Y. retro-ultra-beats like Nick. My sources tell me there will be a super-secret international celeb-utante threatening a mid-night show. Door at 10 p.m., $5 cover.
Burt's Tiki Lounge (726 S. State)
If PBR specials, hot girls and dirty boys are what you seek. Headlining an all-star slam fest week-ender, local punk sensation Negative Charge takes you to a jolting climax. Door at 10 p.m., $5 cover. (Princess Kennedy)
