Glad You Asked: Naked and Famous, Pencils and Psychics



Dear GYA, So I got this cool song -- I don't know if you've heard it or not but it's great. Check it out right here. You know, I meant everything I said -- I'm never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down, run around or desert you ... unless you make fun of my hair. If you talk about my hair, I'll mess you up. So what's happening today? - Rick Astley---

Rick, don't rick roll me ever again. We've all heard your song and no one's talking about your damned hair. In fact, all I can think about right now is that stupid song. It's probably going to ruin my day. Here's what's up for today:

The New Zealand natives Naked and Famous will be performing at The Depot tonight at 9 p.m. Their songs have been featured in everything from Disney's Degrassi to the video game FIFA 12. The band Now will be opening this up. The show starts at 9 p.m.; tickets are going for $20. 

Head over to Weller Book Works in Trolley Square tonight at 7 p.m. to see artisan pencil sharpener David Reese. Essentially, he's a master pencil sharpener, meaning he's really good at sharpening pencils. He'll be signing his new book on the subject, How To Sharpen Pencils, and he'll also be demonstrating his specialized skills.

But if you want to take it to the outer limits, check out Golden Braid Book shop at 6 p.m. tonight for the Psychic Fair. They'll have four talented psychics in house to answer all of your deep general questions. You'd think they would know if you were coming or not, so, unfortunately, you need to call ahead to reserve your spot.  

Other worthwhile events today:

- The Salt Lake City Bees will be taking on the Las Vegas 51s tonight at 6:35 p.m. at Spring Mobile Ballpark  

- Rockers Bright Light Social Hour will be performing at The Complex at 8 p.m. 

- The Hale Centre Theater will be presenting The Secret Garden tonight at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $16-$20.
