One of the cool things about being a journalist is that you get to submit yourself to strange social experiments, like driving to West Valley to join throngs of rabid David Archuleta fans for the 2008 American Idols Tour. Davey's a sweet thing, but I'm more excited to see Jason Castro who managed to make it through the entire season without conservative audiences catching on to his constant hiiiigh.
If Idol doesn't do it for you, head to Velour in Provo for TaughtMe, the work of Blake Henderson with ties to Utah's now-defunct Exumbrella Records and current label Kilby Records. He's a swell guy and a unique artist. Well worth the drive, especially if you carpool it out there. TaughtMe plays again Tuesday, opening for Low at Kilby Court.
