Glad You Asked: Ed Sheeran, Ken Stringfellow and Listener



Dear GYA, Well, it appears that my neighbor Harry -- whatever his last name is -- decided to password protect his goddamned Internet. Can you believe the nerve of that guy? I was three hours away from torrenting the entire Dr. Who series when he decided to throw a password up on his HarrysHouseofWifi network. Anything happening today after I go over there and tear him a new one? - Jeanine Wammers, Sandy---

Jeanine, You have every right to be upset. If you're gonna leave your Internet unsecured, then you should at least go around and warn everyone before you put a password on it. Here's what's up for today:

The Great Saltair will be hosting Ed Sheeran tonight. In April 2012, he released the hit single “The A Team,” and followed up with “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You,” both of which helped earn him two BRIT Awards for Best British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act. Foy Vance and Rizzle Kicks open up. Doors open at 7. Tickets are $25 in advance and $27 at the door

Ken Stringfellow will be performing at Urban Lounge tonight. Known for his work with R.E.M., Big Star and The Posies, Stringfellow is without a doubt a '90s icon. Tolchock Trio will also be performing. Doors open at 9.  Tickets are $10

Indie band Listener will be onstage at Bar Deluxe. City Weekly writer Nicole McDonald says, "Listener is reminiscent of the band Why? and utilizes guitars, drums, banjo and brass instruments for a robust sound. Truly unique to the indie underground world, song titles like “Falling in Love With Glaciers” are representative of Listener’s poetic lyricism and express the subtle sweetness buried beneath the erraticism." Allison Martin is also on the bill. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.
