Gravity Well Studios

Chatting with the studio co-founders before the release of DIVE: Starpath
Thanks in part to the EAE program at the University of Utah, a lot of cool video games come out of this state. Through their program, many designers, programmers and artists have been able to collaborate beyond the projects they create in class.

Chatting with one of the guests for the Grid Zine Fest on April 8.
A while ago we chatted with the crew of the Griz Zine Fest as they were starting to launch and getting their bearings as far as what they were going to do in the community. On April 8, they'll be launching their first official festival at the Salt Lake Arts Academy with workshops and guest speakers.

Purgatory Bar

Getting a feel for one of the latest bars to join the downtown SLC area.
Bars and clubs always seem to be coming and going. Some of the longest-running names have closed up shop, while others have slowly been transforming themselves into new types of hangouts in order to attract new people.

March Gallery Stroll: Fringe Gallery

The debut of the first new gallery on Pierpont Avenue in eight years.
Pierpont Avenue used to be the heart of Salt Lake Gallery Stroll; the majority of businesses along the street between 300 and 400 West offered a treasure trove of monthly artistic exploration and wine drinking. But as people moved out for a bevy of reasons, the street quickly turned into photography studios, artisan shops and other come-and-go businesses, along with some residential.

In The Loop: 3/18/17. Drunk, Flying & Whatnot

Cool events March 19 - April 1
Hey gang: As you're reading this, I'm most likely flying overhead to some place, hopefully not with whatever version of a hangover you get in your 30's. Once upon a time, St. Patrick's Day was one of those amateur-hour holidays where everyone could just pop out and get drunk without remembering the consequences; I didn't really deal with hangovers until I started getting older.

Urban Arts Gallery: Lisa Greenhalgh/Women in Art

Previewing this month's exhibition at the gallery in The Gateway.
This month has a number of exhibitions across the state that are kinda awesome, and passing them up would be a shame. I envy the people who will leave the house on Friday to see what's happening on Stroll night, but we'll talk more about our coverage of that on Monday.

The Banyan Collective

A chat with the trio behind the Ogden-based podcasting network.
Most people who podcast only take on one show, mainly because podcasting is nowhere near a full-time job for the majority of those who do it, so cranking out one episode a week is about as much time as people can devote to it. But then there are those who think to themselves "One show?

Caryn Larrinaga

Previewing the book Donn's Hill with the author before the release.
Every author needs a debut. It doesn't matter what you've written before, or how long you've been doing it; your first novel is an awesome experience and should be celebrated.
