Lounge Act Thursday: MMMBoy it's the end of the month!

It's the last day of September, even though it doesn't feel like it. So after you skip school or work to enjoy the warm sunshine, consider getting out Thursday night.---

You can start with a party celebrating the grand re-opening of the Community Food Co-op of Utah's fancy new warehouse at 1726 S. 700 West. The public's donations helped beef up the place to include a new cooler that will help projects like "The Mobile Market" get the fresh goodies around the valley more easily. There will be tunes from the Whistling Rufus String Band, and light refreshments. The party runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Up at Kingsbury Hall at the U, the Second City touring improv troupe arrives to do a show at 7:30 p.m. Second City is where folks like Tina Fey, Steve Carrell, Bill Murray and John Belushi got their start, so you might just see some of tomorrow's comedy superstars on stage. The tickets are free for U students, so hopefully you are one, or you know one. 

Finally, if you're old enough to remember Hanson (pictured above, all grown up) when the teeny-bopper trio had a monster hit with "MMMBop," then you're old enough to give the band another listen, because they've evolved into a rock-solid power-pop band in the 13 or so years since that song drove us all crazy. Thursday night, they play The Depot at 8 p.m. with A Rocket to the Moon opening.
