Dear GYA, As I'm writing this, I'm trying my first Mountain Dew Baja Blast. Holy heck, it's amazing! It's like the entire Mormon Tabernacle Choir is singing in my mouth while Mitt Romney backs 'em up on keytar. Wow! Well, now that I've had one sip of soda, I'll probably be up for three days. Anything good happening? - Chris Pinkerlushen, BYU freshman
Chris, I'm glad you finally get to try soda. Also, give Code Red a whirl -- it'll mess you up. Here's what's going down today:
The nu-metal band Powerman 5000 will be at The Complex this evening. The rap-rock group has often been compared to the music of Rob Zombie, who is the older brother to PM5K front man's Spider One. The Nubskull Trio, Hooga and Orion's Wrath are also on the bill. The show starts at 8 p.m.
