Dear GYA, Why does everyone keep saying, "Remember, remember the 5th of November?" It's all over my Facebook and Twitter feeds and it's really confusing. Is it because today is Bill Walton's birthday? Because I can get behind that. Speaking of which, what should I do to celebrate the birth of the Big Redhead?" - James Derpson, Provo
James, I think it's a reference to some movie that starts with a V. But why not celebrate Bill Walton's birthday, anyway? Here are a few options:
The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art is hosting an installment by artist Megan Geckler entitled No Chance to Move Backward and See. Geckler is a math wiz who uses her knowledge of arithmetic to create transformative designs that play with the forms of Op-Art, the 1970s Light and Space Movement and Minimalism. The exhibit is going on all day today.
The Americana band Haunted Windchimes will be on tage at The State Room tonight. They are currently touring their most recent release, Out With the Crow, which received the 2012 Americana album of the year by the Indy Music Awards. The Haunted Windchimes' musical style falls somewhere between bluegrass, country and folk. The show starts at 8 p.m.
