Lounge Act Thursday: Margaritas with Jews is just the beginning



Thursday night is packed with opportunities to check out new talent, a new live music venue and a Mexi-Jewish throwdown.---

Salsa in the Sukkah
This community event at the Jewish Community Center has a little something for everyone. You can learn to salsa dance. You can make and sample some salsa. You can sip margarities to your heart's content. It's all part of celebrating the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, and you can help decorate a Sukkah—a temporary dwelling used by the Israelites on their journey to Jerusalem, while you're there as well. The party starts at 6 p.m.

I can't tell you much about Rusko, current dub-step hero, 'cause that style of music ain't my bag. But I CAN tell you I've been waiting for The Complex to open since its intended debut in July. It's going to be a multi-room venue, with some shows all-ages, and some 21 , and this show is the first time the club will be tested with actual paying customers. Good luck--lord knows we can always use another live music outlet.

Best of Spy Hop 2010
If you don't know the cool things the Spy Hop after-school multi-media program does, this event at the Post Theater is a perfect chance to check them out. The best film, music and design work produced by area kids through the last year will be shown and recognized, and I'm betting you'll find yourself inspired by what the Salt Lake community's kids are up to. I always am when I spy on Spy Hop. The event is 7 to 9 p.m., and it's free.

Thursday is also the opening of Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company's new season with "Configuations" at the Rose Wagner, while Phoenix and Neon Indian will surely pack In The Venue.

For my money, though, the best music gig of the night is at The Urban Lounge, courtesy of Japandroids. The show starts at 9 p.m., and you can check 'em out right here:
