Lounge Act Thursday: Thievery Corporation, Two Gallants and Utes



I'm back from an NYC vacation that was involuntarily extended by Hurricane Irene, and I'm ready to get September started in style. How about you?---

Thursday marks opening night of the University of Utah football season; the Utes will be playing Montana State at 6 p.m. in what should be a blowout, but don't be surprised if the game is somewhat close. The Bobcats from Bozeman are a good team for a school that size.

Thursday night also features the Thievery Corporation show at Red Butte Garden. The garden rarely hosts this kind of electro dance-party, so it should be a pretty cool gig in Utah's best concert venue. Read our interview with Thievery Corporation, then go check out the show.

The Urban Lounge is hosting what is sure to be a great show courtesy of Two Gallants. The San Fran duo has been on hiatus for awhile, but this show is part of a tour to get them back up to speed -- a really great live band, to be sure.

The Capitol Theatre opens its run of Broadway Across America's Mary Poppins Thursday night. Admit it: You already have "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" running through your head, don't you?
