Glad You Asked: Gramatik, La Mancha and Bob Ross | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Glad You Asked: Gramatik, La Mancha and Bob Ross



Dear GYA, Is it just me, or does it seems like everyone wants to talk about my gigantic ripped jeans? Isn't that messed up? It's like, I'm out here doin' my thing, and people be all like, "Yo Mike, whaddup wit dem ripped jeans?" Maybe I'm stuck in the '90s but I think they're comfortable. Anything happening today where people won't make fun of my jeans?- Michael Jordan

Mike, you can wear whatever you want, you're the Airman. If you want to wear ripped raver pants, that's your decision. Besides, I can't see you wearing skinny jeans, anyway. Here are some events today that might be hater-free:

The funky glitch sampler Gramatik will be dropping some bass-y sounds at Urban Lounge at 9 p.m. As one of the latest to sign to Pretty Lights Music, Gramatik's DJ sets are diverse and deep, often skirting the line between trip-hop, dubstep and funk. Steezo and Crisis are also on the bill. Tickets are going for $15.

Head to Pioneer Memorial Theatre for the theatrical production of Man of La Mancha. It's the story of legendary lady's man Don Quixote as told by the author, who's rotting away in a Spanish prison -- a classic tale of romantic ideals, and artistic director Charles Morley's swan song.. The curtains go up at 7:30 p.m.

The 24Tix office will be hosting the visual art installation Happy Accidents all day today. Inspired by PBS artist Bob Ross, 22 local artists followed Ross's instructional art series The Joy of Painting and created their own "happy little mountains." There's a $5 suggested donation.

A few more worthwhile events:

- At 9 p.m., Metalheads RiotGod and company will be performing at Burt's Tiki Lounge.

- Empress Theatre in Magna will be showing Blithe Spirit tonight at 7:30 p.m.

- Good ol'-fashioned pub trivia with Geeks Who Drink at Devil's Daughter, beginning at 8 p.m.
