Glad You Asked: Theophilus London, Mumford & Sons and 311

Posted By on August 22, 2012, 1:00 PM

Dear GYA, I'm so pumped for the final season of The Office. Yeah, it's sad that the show is ending but I can't wait to see this documentary that they've been working on. With 9 seasons of raw footage, it's bound to be sweet. I just hope they edit out everything that happened after Michael Scott left.---Well, while I'm waiting, anything good going on tonight? - Sam Hodgerton, Murray

Sam, it's a documentary. That means they have to show the good and the bad. I'm sorry, but this includes Ed Helms. Here's what's happening tonight:

Theophilus London will be performing at Urban Lounge this evening. The rapper just recently dropped his latest mixtape, titled Rose Island Vol. I, featuring Outkast's Big Boi, A$AP Rocky and Sade. London's shows are typically a mish-mash of everything from rap, rock and synth-heavy dance tracks. Dope Thought and Flash and Flare will be starting things off. The show starts at 9 p.m.

The British rockers Mumford & Sons will be onstage at the Great Saltair. The indie-folk band has emerged from the studio and is about to release their highly anticipated new album Babel, on Sept. 21. The album is a follow-up to their extremely popular 2009 album Sigh No More. Slow Club and Nathan Rateliff will be starting things off. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Nineties rockers 311 will be live at the Usana Amphitheater. Known for their hits songs in the rap-rock-reggae genre like "Down and All Mixed Up," 311 has just released their ninth studio album Uplifter, which debuted at number 3 on Billboard's 200. Slightly Stoopid and SOJA are also performing. The show starts at 6:30 p.m.

A few other worthwhile events happening tonight:

- The Bedlam Follies Cabaret will be going down at Area 51, starting at 9 p.m.

- The Sandy Amphitheater will be hosting the International Folk Festival tonight at 8 p.m. 

- Living Legends rapper Luckyiam will be performing at Bar Deluxe at 9 p.m.
