Artoberfest at The Salt Shaker


Looking for an alternative to Gallery Stroll this evening? At a venue so new we don't even have a proper listing for it yet, The Salt Shaker (135 East 600 South) will host its first annual festival this Saturday. --- Artoberfest is a mixture of music and film, showcasing two of Utah's hottest bands at the moment with a film premiere to cap off the evening. The movie to be, "Move It Or Lose It", is a brand new venture from skater/director Josh Martinez, featuring some of Utah's youngest and freshest skaters performing at their finest. Some of the participants include Ashley Bloxham, Didier Bouchever, Dillian Call, Dylan Evans, Mike Murdock, Reed Thomas and Cold Woods, some of which are featured artists for the evening. The kickoff will include an art showing of various sculputres, paintings, photos and crafts, as well as a silent auction with all proceeds going directly to the artists involved. DJ Applegreen will be spinning grooves all night long, and to finish up the evening will be live performances from Spell Talk and Palace Of Buddies.
