Part one of two sets of interviews with the finalists!
Last week, Muse Music in Provo launched its 2016 Battle Of The Bands, bringing together a mix of SLC and Provo groups, the majority of them relatively unknown, with some even forming just within the past calendar year. After a spirited competition over four nights, the finalists came together on Saturday to a packed venue.
I've always loved Italian Caprese salads, with their basic components of ripe Roma tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fragrant, fresh basil leafs. Recently, it occurred to me that maybe the same Caprese combo - plus beef - would make an interesting slider.
A look at the art at CUAC from last Friday's Stroll.
Say what you will about the chill in the air: When it comes to October, people love to get out. That was the case this past Friday night, when practically every place I had a chance to visit was filled with art-loving folks looking at the latest exhibitions for Salt Lake Gallery Stroll.
Brand new music from The Circulars, Spirit City, Motion Coaster and more.
In the middle of all your pre-pre-pre Halloween plans, we've got a couple of shows for you to check out tonight, where you can get brand new music from awesome Utah bands. But for those of you who are going out to something else in costume, we have a ton of local music digitally released this week.
Previewing the latest artistic co-op before their grand opening on Oct. 21
Tonight's Gallery Stroll is probably going to be the last one of the year that won't require a heavy coat and an hourly weather check before going out, making it the last great chance to wander around on foot to see new art. But every month is also an opportunity for a new spot to open up, which is exactly the case for Downtown Artist Collective.
A look at the last title from the recently closed United Front Games.
Growing up with basic cable, I had access to a ton of old-school films from the '70s and '80s that were considered hot garbage and fell into syndication. Within the mounds of romantic thrillers and oddball action flicks were some cult classics, and one that stood out to me and many others was The Warriors.
A longtime fan of Bonny Doon wines and winemaker/philosopher/wordsmith/raconteur Randall Grahm, I especially like the latest vintage of his Bonny Doon Clos de Gilroy 2014 ($19). As Grahm puts it, Clos de Gilroy isn't made from the "weapons-grade Grenache" that he uses to produce Bonny Doon Le Cigare Volant.
A look into the pre-alpha version of tinyBuild's latest game.
Anyone who has seen the movie Rear Window knows the plight and perils of neighbor paranoia. More than 60 years later, the film still holds up as one of Hitchcock's masterworks, as Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly spy on a neighbor across the way who they believe murdered his wife.
