Art & Air & Ferocious Fire Breathing Frou Frous
There's a LOT going on tonight, not the least of which is Downtown Gallery Stroll. If you haven't heard about Present Tense yet, there's still time to read all about it right here. Art abounds all over the stroll, from Leia Bell's new Signed & Numbered shop, to Ken Sander's one-night-only Miscellany event feat. music by local guitarist Gentry Densely and even the Guthrie Studios' folks are opening their doors for a rare glimpse behind the curtain.
Me, I'll be learning all about the magical world of faux rock at the U.S. National Air Guitar Championships at Avalon. Myself, Bill Frost, X96's Portia Early and SLUG's Jason Paxtin will be judging the performances. Competition starts at 7 p.m.
Later, check out Purr Bats at Urban with Andale! and Starmy. Or, Pink Lightnin will be tearing it up at Monk's, Reverend Horton Heat will be preaching rockabilly at The Depot...
Summer is here! Dust off your bikes if you haven't already and get out there. SLC has a lot to offer
Tomorrow, head to the Farmer's Market. One of the highlights: Tommy Nguyen and another Takashi chef will be slicing up fresh sushi in the Northeast corner.
