Glad You Asked: Jane's Addiction, Bonnie Raitt and Stand-Up

Dear GYA, I just wanna say that if Obama gets elected for a second term, there will be no pizza for anyone. That means no pizza bagels, no pizza rolls and certainly no pizza parties. Let me clarify what I just said, NO... PIZZA! What does this mea, for you? It's means no pizza. Don't force me to punish the voters by closing down my business for 4 years. Damn it, I'll do it. Anything happening tonight that'll take my mind off Obama's war on pizza? - Herman "The Godfather" Cain

Herman, nice work. I love how you're taking the country's love for delicious pizza and using it to cleverly manipulate an election. Genius. I can't stand these pizza-hatin' liberals. Here's what's going down tonight...

'90s alternative group Jane's Addiction will be at the Great Saltair this evening. The Los Angeles-based crew is considered one of the greatest alternative bands of all time. Here's a little fact nugget: Their farewell tour in 1991 spawned what is now known as the Lollapalooza Festival. They're sort of a big deal. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Bonnie Raitt will be onstage at Red Butte Garden. Considered to be one of the greatest slide guitarists of all time, Raitt recently completed her 16th studio album. Mavis Staples will be warming things up. The show starts at 7 p.m.

The Complex will be hosting its weekly Comedy Roadkill series tonight. Every Tuesday, this free stand-up showcase features some of the states funniest up-and-coming comedians. Afterward, stick around for the free open-mic session. The show starts at 8 p.m. Sign-ups are at 7:30 p.m.

Other worthwhile events happening tonight:

- Maggie McGees will be the site for Geeks Who Drink Pub Trivia, beginning at 8 p.m.

- At the Main Library, check out the Music At Main Concert Series featuring tunes from Color Animal and Tolchok trio. The music starts at 7 p.m.

- The Soulistics will be live at the Exchange Place Plaza at noon.
