Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, A lot of you are complaining that I shouldn't be spending two million dollars of the taxpayers' money to fight gay marriage, but whatever, it's my money, I can do whatever the hell I want with it. You guys aren't the boss of me. If my friends and I want to fight gay marriage or go to the movies on a Sunday, that's what we're going to do. I'm the Governor. Dang. Anything else I could do this weekend that involves blowing two million dollars? - Gov. Gary Herbert---

Gary, You could do so many things with two million dollars. You could invest that money in our failing schools, create more green initiatives to reduce air pollution, you could potentially feed two million people with 99-cent crispy chicken nuggets from Wendy's; the possibilities are endless. Here's what's happening this weekend, starting with Friday's events: 

Psychobilly rocker Reverend Horton Heat will be at The Depot this evening. Jello Biafra will open things up. The doors open at 8. Tickets are $25.  

For a full dose of dubstep, head over to Urban Lounge for Dubwise. The doors open at 9:30 p.m.; admission is $5 before 10:30 p.m., $10 after. 

DJ Ria will be spinning a downtempo set at Red Door this evening. There is no cover. Music starts at 9.

Pick up a new boomstick at the Rocky Mountain Gun Show today at the South Towne Expo Center. The show opens at 9 a.m. Tickets are $11, children 12 and under are free.
