Glad You Asked: Suns, Tennis and Nice Coats



Dear GYA, I don't know why everyone's making such a big deal about the elbow I threw during Sunday's matchup with the Thunder. You see, it's all for a good cause -- every once in a while I'll throw an elbow or two to help raise awareness for world peace. Why are people mad about this?Anyways, got any suggestions for tonight -- preferably a place where I can throw a couple of elbows? - Metta World Peace--- 

Metta, this is an awesome idea. But why stop at elbows? If you really want to get your message across, you should go all the way and incorporate headlocks, trash talk and non-nonsensical post-game interviews. Here's what's going down tonight:

For a little taste of indie rock, head over to Urban Lounge and check out Denver natives Tennis. The band is fronted by an adorable husband-and-wife duo and they've been gaining quite a bit of recognition with their latest album Young and Old. The show starts at 9 p.m. Wild Belle is also on the bill. 

After coming off a huge OT victory over the Orlando Magic, the Jazz will be looking to lock down a playoff spot as they take on the Phoenix Suns tonight at 7 p.m. A win tonight would guarantee a postseason spot for the first time since 2010; however, if they lose then Jerry Sloan may cry a little bit. Let's go, Jazz!  

If you appreciate a good-looking coat then check out Joseph and Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat tonight at the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo. Sometimes a badass jacket makes people want to break into song, and sometimes a jacket is so sweet that it actually deserves a musical. The curtain goes up at 7 p.m.   

Other worthwhile events:

- Chain & The Gang tonight at Kilby Court at 7 p.m. 

- Check out a screening of City Dark at the downtown Public Library at 7 p.m.   

- Abstractionist art from Jerry Hardesty at the House Gallery.
