Dear GYA, Look, on one hand I'd love to see Run The Jewels tonight. They were great at Twilight last summer and their new album earned a 9 out of 10 on Pitchfork. However, I also have a soft spot in my heart for Biz Markie, who is performing at Metro Bar. How does one decide? - Gary Hounders, Salt Lake City 

Gary, this is certainly a tough decision. But if you recall the Old El Paso commercial regarding the difficult decision of hard or soft tacos, then you'd know the correct solution to a situation like this is always, "Why not have both?" Here's the details on tonight's shows: 

Rap duo Run The Jewels will be at Urban Lounge this evening. Ratking and Depot will open up. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20.

Legendary emcee Biz Markie will be at Metro Bar tonight. Better Taste Bureau, Kelly Packer and Leo Cody are also on the bill. The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $20. 

A few other options for tonight: 

Indie group Dads will be at Kilby Court. Tiny Moving Parts and Choir Vandals are also performing. The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8.

And, coincidentally, punk band The Moms will be at Shred Shed. Everything Ever and Save the World will warm it up.
