Need some ideas on what to do with yourself this fine Tuesday? We've got ya covered.---

I never really considered myself a fan of Lindsey Buckingham until I reviewed a Fleetwood Mac concert probably 10 years ago, after he had rejoined the band and before Christine McVie had left. I had unusually good seats that night, which allowed me to watch Buckingham's passionate guitar playing up close, and it was a transforming experience as a music fan. The songs I'd heard a million times through the years had new life in the live environment. When he first played at The Depot solo a few years later, it was again pretty magical, mostly because of the intimate environs. Buckingham always brings a strong backing band, and his solo works holds up easily with the old familiar hits. His latest album, Seeds We Sow, is another strong addition to his catalog. And it's a show I won't miss.

The incredible Kronos Quartet is performing "Awakening" at Kingsbury Hall Tuesday night; the piece is a meditation on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, and includes a special appearance by the International Children's Choir.

If you dig the Farmers Market at Pioneer Park on Saturday mornings, you just might love the Tuesday night version. It's a sleek, less scenester take with lots of the same great produce from Utah's finest growers.
