Dear GYA, I don't know how to put this, but ... I'm kind of a big deal. Last night, I announced that there will be Anchorman 2 on Conan and I couldn't be happier. Yes, yes, I know, I'm in a glass case of emotion right now. And dang it, if you're not going to see my movie, I'll fight you -- that's no lie. Anyways, I'm looking to do a little celebrating tonight with the boys. Any suggestions? You stay classy, Salt Lake City, I'm Ron Burgundy? for Action 4 News Team
Ron, I'm very excited for you, and there's no better way to celebrate a sequel to such a beloved movie than a night on the town with the boys. I mean, 60% of the time, it works every time. Start out by heading over to the 2012 World Horror Convention at the Radisson Hotel. There will be tons of memorabilia for purchase, live performances, a seance, and best of all, esteemed author of Hell Boy Mike Mignola will be there! If you can't make it out tonight, no worries, the event is happening through April 1.
Being the jazz flutist you are, you might enjoy Lost in The Trees tonight at The State Room. They're a folk orchestra that sometimes features over a dozen members. Their newest album, A Church That Fits Our Needs, has been getting a lot of hype on the indie charts. So don't be surprised if you see these guys at the top of many music critics' top ten lists come December. Poor Moon is also on the bill. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are available for $12.
If you're looking to cut the rug tonight, check out Los Angeles based Orgone at Hog Wallow Pub. They're a funk, afro-beat and soul band who's played with the likes of Pharcyde, Breakestra and they were the backing band for UGK's Bun B. Needless to say, they crush the dance floor. The show starts at 9:30 p.m.
Other events suitable for Mr. Burgundy:
-Pioneer Company's Laughing Stock tonight at the Pioneer Memorial Theatre
- At 8 p.m. tonight, Geeks Who Drink pub trivia at Lumpy's Downtown
- Author of BZRK Michael Grant at King's English Bookshop tonight at 7 p.m.
