In Review: Blood Orange @ The Saltair, 10/8 Seeing Blood Orange has long been a dream of mine, the mastermind of it, Dev Hynes being one of my favorite artists and producers; he’s collaborated with Carly Rae Jepson, and his work with Sky Ferreira just made Pitchfork’s decade-ranker “Best 200 Songs of the 2010s.” And so I was kicking myself when I found out a day before his show that he’d be opening for Tyler, the Creator at The Great Saltair.

Movie Reviews: Gemini Man, The Addams Family, Jexi, Lucy in the Sky, El Camino

The Addams Family **1/2 This animated reboot, set in the present day, has everyone's favorite spooky Goth family (or second-favorite, if you were more of a Munsters person) in conflict with a new neighborhood that has popped up nearby called Assimilation, in which sameness is celebrated over individuality. The subdivision is owned (?)

Music Revolution Fest in St. George, Electronic Open Mic at Diabolical
THURSDAY 10/10 Get Outta Town: Music Revolution Fest in St. George It’s been a while since I scoped what was going on down in the land of Utah’s famous “party school,” mostly because friends who’ve lived there, are from there or went to school (briefly) there insisted that, at least a few years ago, there was nothing going on in the not-really-land of Dixie. But upon finding the St. George-based band NVM (pictured) on social media, it became apparent that there is indeed some cool activity bubbling in the simmering part of our state.

Movie Review: JOKER

The flop-sweat of trying to make a super-villain origin story into serious drama.

Movie Reviews: Abominable, Judy, The Sound of Silence

Aquarela, The Day Shall Come, Jay Myself
Abominable **1/2 It’s a story about a young person heartbroken by a father’s absence, who finds companionship in the form of a mysterious creature with the magical ability to rejuvenate dying plants, and which is hiding out from research scientists; the young person then undertakes a risky journey to get the creature back home. If that sounds familiar, it’s because you can’t spell “yeti” without “E.T.” Writer/director Jill Culton (Open Season) sets her animated variation in China, where teenager Yi (Chole Bennet) is the young person, and a young yeti she calls Everest is the creature she wants to get back to his Himalayan habitat, even as she grieves for her dad.
