Music Monday 7/23: Drake & Migos and more

Whether you like your hip-hop ice-cold and Canadian or dipped in Dirty South hot sauce, this Thursday’s Drake + Migos show at Vivint Smart Home Arena will satisfy. Billed as the Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour (Aubrey is Drake’s real name, and The Three Migos refers to, well, the three members of Migos), the 57-leg North American jaunt actually kicks off here in Salt Lake City, leading us to the sneaking suspicion that Atlanta’s Takeoff, Quavo and Offset really like it here in The Beehive State.

Music Monday 7/2: Boytoy, Echo Beds, Freedom Festival and more for your holiday week

Last February, I swooned when Oklahoma psychedelic surf rock band Planet What came through town, sending a few sonic booms out from Diabolical Records’ cozy confines. This week, the trend continues when Brooklyn’s Boytoy headline a Tuesday, July 3 show at Diabolical, bringing salty licks from their latest album, Night Leaf, to the Wasatch Front.

Movie Reviews: Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Uncle Drew

A thin week for new releases brings a sequel to a morally-grey thriller about the War on Drugs, and a feature film version of a Pepsi Max ad campaign. Uncle Drew turns a series of faux-documentary commercials into a comedy that seems to think NBA players in old-age makeup are funnier than Tiffany Haddish.

The Catcher Was a Spy, The Seagull
Dinosaurs rule the multiplexes this weekend, while counter-programming includes a Chekhov adaptation, a historical biopic and a documentary about a gentle TV legend. A stellar cast elevates the adaptation of Chekhov's The Seagull, but it makes you wish for that cast to take the show on the road.
