Local Releases: Spirit Coasters In Circular Motion

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.

Movie Reviews: Jack Reacher, Denial, Ouija, Keeping Up With the Joneses

Denial, Desierto, In a Valley of Violence, I'm Not Ashamed
A jam-packed movie weekend features a little bit of everything: Tom Cruise, horror, neo-Nazis, slapstick comedy, Westerns, faith-based biography and a cat-and-mouse desert thriller. Denial follows the risky approach of a real-life court case about a Holocaust denier—avoid all emotional catharsis—and winds up feeling like a movie that should have been a play.

Downtown Artist Collective

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.

The Pipeline: Finding My Inner Street Warrior In Smash+Grab

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.

The TNT Show

Getting behind the camera of the geeky news talk webshow.
Geekdom in general is thriving in Utah. So of course when you have a thriving culture, there's going to be a lot of content created in that pool of interest.

Wine Wednesday: Bonny Doon Clos de Gilroy

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.

The Pipeline: Hello Neighbor Makes Me Question All My Neighbors!

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.

This past Friday I made my way over to Urban Lounge to check out SLC acts who are working hard to play and entertain, including Tarot Death Card and Quiet Oaks.

City leaders are sketching out plans for a public accommodation ordinance aimed at protecting LGBTQ individuals from discrimination in deciding which bathrooms they use in public.

Monday Meal: Caribbean Chicken Colombo

A Caribbean recipe with subtle, curry-type flavors
The recipe for the Colombo spice mix here will make enough for 8 or 10 batches of chicken Colombo.
