Glad You Asked: Iron & Wine, The Odd Couple and Shumway


Dear GYA, We are so obsessed with celebrity culture it makes me sick. That being said, why is everyone making such a big deal about Miley Cyrus' new haircut? It's all I've been hearing about lately. Who cares? Personally, I'm not gonna lie, it does look good. Anyways, anything happening tonight to distract me from all this Miley Cyrus news?- Tank Girl

Tank Girl, you have to understand how the Internet works. The only reason you're getting so much Miley-related news is because people love to complain about the things they hate, especially on the Internet. Don't worry, I'm positive Kim Kardashian will wear some revealing bathing suit tomorrow and all will be forgotten. Here's what's going down tonight: 

The indie-folk band Iron & Wine will be headlining tonight's Twilight Concert Series. Typically, Iron & Wine’s is a one-man show, but the last time he was in SLC, the show featured a full band to fully articulate new songs like “Half Moon” and “Me & Lazarus.” But it will be a good show, either way. Kathleen Edwards opens up. The show starts at 7 p.m. 

Check out the Neil Simon Festival in Cedar City for the debut of The Odd Couple. Based both on the movie and the long-running hit TV series, the theatrical production follows the tale of two very opposite men who find themselves as unlikely roommates who must learn to get along despite their very different lifestyles. Kind of like the show Perfect Strangers, which I'm sure came later. The show starts at 8 p.m. 

Charity Shumway will read and sign form her debut novel Ten Girls To Watch at The King's English Bookshop, which is based in part on Shumway's life experiences while working at Glamour magazine and the stories of many of the women profiled by the magazine. Shumway's writing has also been published by Fitness, Ladies Home Journal, Garden Design and others. The reading starts at 7 p.m. 

Other worthwhile events happening tonight:

- The Funk Arks and The Chickens will be performing at Bar Deluxe. The doors open at 9 p.m.

- University of Utah's Campus Edible Gardens will be selling their veggies today at 9 a.m.  

- Zion Tribe will be playing a free show at the City and County Building, beginning at 12:15 p.m.
