Guerilla Toss's Kassie Carlson

The musician opens up about addiction and trying to stay physically and mentally healthy.
New York quintet Guerilla Toss have established themselves as purveyors of controlled onstage chaos, filling cozy rooms like Salt Lake City’s own Diabolical Records with violin-driven, visually enhanced post-punk fury that swings, slaps and screams.

Theater Review: Salt Lake Acting Company's FORM OF A GIRL UNKNOWN

World premiere play explores the dark edges of coming-of-age.
Amali Wilson (Amanda Morris) announces herself as “12 and three-quarters years old” in Form of a Girl Unknown—and that’s the kind of wonderful shorthand that allows playwright Charly Evon Simpson to let us know the precarious border between childhood and adulthood where Amali stands.

Movie Reviews: Maleficent 2, Zombieland: Double Tap, Becoming Nobody

Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool
Becoming Nobody **1/2 Director Jamie Catto clearly considers himself a student of spiritual teacher Ram Dass, a point of view generating a documentary that’s unusual both for the better and for the worse. There’s no attempt at cradle-to-grave narrative exploring how the American-born psychologist (né Richard Alpert) graduated from psychedelic experimentation with Timothy Leary to learning at the feet of Neem Karoli Baba in India.

A historic resolution ensuring women’s right to vote goes on display at the Capitol.
Women first got the right to vote in Utah territory when state lawmakers passed a women’s suffrage bill in 1870.

Movie Review: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Thematic ambition gets lost in the need to deliver fantasy spectacle
It’s a sneaky-clever, and possibly misleading, bit of business to give the Maleficent sequel the sub-title Mistress of Evil. After all, wasn’t the horned fairy (Angelina Jolie) redeemed in 2014’s Maleficent, transformed by her love for Aurora (Elle Fanning), the princess/adopted daughter she had sworn in a fit of vengeful rage to put to sleep forever?

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 (?)
