Lounge Act: Sat/Sun with Pickles, Bobcats and Muslims-Oh My! | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Lounge Act: Sat/Sun with Pickles, Bobcats and Muslims-Oh My!



You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll question your sanity at the end of it all: It's a weekend's worth of entertainment tips.---

No time to dilly-dally. Check out some good times worth your time:


The Salt Lake Art Center is hosting the 8th annual Salt Lake Muslim Multicultural Festival from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., with performances by the Kensin Taiko drummers, the mariachi band, art exhibits and assorted games, food and activities. And it's free!

Saturday night, The Devil Whale and Future of the Ghost top a bill of fine local tunes at 9 p.m. at The Urban Lounge, while Bobcat Goldthwait (pictured), one of my personal faves, headlines at the West Valley City Wiseguys.

Saturday night also marks the 20th birthday of the Trapp, and they're having a big ol' party to celebrate at 7 p.m., which would be a nice preamble to Picklepalooza, an art and music fiesta at The Pickle Company Saturday night.


If you miss Alexis Gideon performing at Picklepalooza—and you should read our profile of him here—check him out Sunday night at Slowtrain, where he'll be doing his indescribable blend of music and video art.
