Hello to all you over-hyped Scott-Pilgrim-is-gonna-make-you-squeal enthusiasts. If you're any kind of video gamer, this is your film for the year. On occasion, you need a movie that's just dumb fun. For a change of pace, how about some random building pasting artwork.

--- Couple of things to chat about, first up on tomorrow's list of things to do, the Salty Streets Flea Market is back at Kilby Court. If you're not going to these, you're a fucking idiot. A six hour event held on on the street and in the venue that includes eats and vendors, plus music entertainment, all for just $2. This month's performers will be Mason Jones, The Glinting Gems and Fox Van Cleef!
Karamea Puriri and Audrey Gallegos
have put a lot of hard work and love into these events, go check it out before the weather decides they can't do it any longer.

For music the Warped Tour is hitting town next Saturday... so fuck that event. Really, $30 to see Pennywise and Reel Big Fish headline at the Fairgrounds? I hate to sound like a trendy smartass, but 1997 just paged us and they'd like their gig back. Instead, might I suggest a three day localized gig that isn't sponsored by a shoe brand? Uncle Uncanny's Music Festival kicks off on August 13th and continues throughout the weekend with a slew of Utah bands including Spell Talk, Fox Van Cleef, Ulyssees, The Velvetones, Hotel Le Motel, Triggers & Slips, the Cody Jordan Band, Dead Horse Anonymous and more to be added. Parking themselves at River's Edge in Deer Park (just north of Heber City), $35 will snag you three days worth of music and entertainment in an area that isn't too shabby. Camping is encouraged, though I'm sure Heber would love to have you.

But for those looking to stick to the city, we got a film fest coming. The second annual Salt Lake City Film Festival that is, kicking off on August 12th Carrying an assortment of films that near doubles what they had last year, there's a bit of something for everyone. Including the first official Utah feature of the documentary “Cleanflix: The Movie” to kick off the showings. Check out their website for dates, times and locations that will be all over the downtown area. And most of all, support our local filmmakers who are a part of the fest.

As for the blog, I'm not entirely sure what the hell is coming up. I have an idea, there's a show and a cause we'll be talking about, but there's a couple unconfirmed interviews in the works. And if things fall through I'll tell you why they did. So, most definitely, we'll see what happens.
