December Gallery Stroll: Sarina Villareal

A look into the solo pop-up gallery near the Eccles Theater.
Salt Lake Gallery Stroll's last event for the year took place this past Friday night. Every December, the last Stroll is held at the start of the year rather than trying to invade the holidays, because if anyone is going to win the "war" on Christmas, it's Christmas.

Wallace Fetzer

The indie SLC comedian talks about local standup and his career.
A common theme you're going to see in many of the posts this month is how the year is winding down, and how that affects a lot of people. In the local comedy scene, you'll see a lot of fundraiser shows featuring a plethora of local talent, raising money for everything from Toys For Tots to the Road Home.

Anime Happy Hour

The hosts of the local anime podcast gush about their love for anime
These are great times to be an anime fan. Tons of content is being produced overseas and exported to the states through companies like Funimation and CrunchyRoll, so it's only natural that the audience for it would be growing, even if you only end up liking one particular show.

2 Girls 1 Playbill

The women behind the local theatre blog chat about the passion and reviews.
There's a lot of awesome theater happening not just in the independent companies, but all around the state. But there are times that even those involved with the art can't keep up with everything happening in town, which is where 2 Girls 1 Playbill comes in.

November Gallery Stroll: Russel Daniels

A look into his photography exhibit at God Hates Robots this month.
The cold has finally settled it, but it matters little, as hundreds of people poured into the galleries of SLC to check out the latest art on display for Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. This month seemed to have more galleries on display than we've seen in a while, many of which will continue these shows through Christmas (but more on that next month).

Long Way North

A chat with Rémi Chayé about his directorial debut.
The Salt Lake Film Society has always done an amazing job bringing in films from around the globe, whether we knew we wanted them or not. This weekend is no exception, as Shout Factory Films brings in the 2015 French-Danish animated film Long Way North, in full English dub (with the exception of the 4:10 p.m. showings, which will be in French with subtitles).

Theater Review: Plan-B Theatre Co.'s "One Big Union"

The legend of a good character can live on past their death through artistry and activism. Putting that story on stage makes it even more powerful.

Grid Zine Fest

A chat with the organization before their release show this Friday.
In the worst of political times, we seem to get the best of art, literature, journalism and activism in our country. No better example of that can be found locally than in the zine culture, where even at the most recent Alt Press Fest we saw a great increase of locally-made publications.

Movie Reviews: Arrival, Moonlight, King Cobra, Harry & Snowman

A strange new world greeted America this week, but at theaters, it's another weekend of new releases. The documentary Harry & Snowman  takes a true-live underdog story and loses track of the dynamics that make it most interesting.
