February Gallery Stroll: Aleta Boyce

A look at the mixed-media exhibition currently on display at Art Access
An unusually warm February brought out people in droves who didn't mind walking around in the mild rain to see what was on display for this month's Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. That was both a blessing and a curse for a Friday night, as many galleries chose not to participate this month and instead took the night off, but it gave some opportunities for people to get around to other galleries they may not visit on their standard route.

In The Loop: 2/18/17. Civil Unrest Is The New Black

Cool events to check out from Feb. 19 to March 4.
I personally can't recall the last time I scanned through events and saw so many protests. Wait, yes I can: the last time we elected George W. Bush and everyone was pissed off at everything.

Plan-B Theatre: Virtue

The playwright and lead actor chat about Plan-B's latest production.
The latest production to come out of Plan-B will take an interesting turn down the road of religious exploration with Virtue. The play focuses on  Hildegard of Bingen, an interesting figure in the Catholic Church from the 12th century who managed to have the ear of the Pope, wrote the first Western world's first opera and questioned whether or not they could bridge the gap between spirituality and sexuality. Today we chat with playwright Tim Slover, who is making his Plan-B Theatre debut, and actor Christy Summerhays, who will be playing Hildegard, about the production and bringing it to life, as well as their thoughts going into opening night.

The Metro Music Hall

A look at the refit and new ownership of the downtown music venue.
For the past few years, The Metro/Metro Bar has been an unusual venue on the west side of downtown SLC. Bordering between dance club, social hall and music venue, it had become a pre-party destination for those before attending bigger shows a block away, while also serving as a dance club for most of their shows.

In The Loop: 2/4/17. Staring Into The Gray Abyss

Awesome events to check out from Feb. 5-18!
I don't know how the rest fo you out there are feeling, but all this porn in the air sure is messing with my lungs. As we sit in the murky soup-like bog that is the inversion, and watch countless stories tell us we have the worst air quality in the country, it truly makes you wonder how many lives are being saved from all that porn we were warned about.
