In The Loop: 4/5/14. Playing To Pay My Taxes!



Hello to all you money-saving, deduction-finding, accountant-yelling, why-the-fuck-do-I-owe-so-much entheusiests! --- Yep, that's right, I totally did an IRS intro. Because nothing else exciting is really happening around town, and since the alternative was the talk about the Tar Sands protests, I decided to go for the less-depressing topic. In lieu of a 337 update, here's a shot of a local busker on the streets.

Not a lot to talk about over the next few weeks that won't be covered in this blog. The first being on Monday at Library Square as a celebration of support will be held for the families and legal team involved with the Kitchen v. Herbert case heads to Colorado and the 10th Circuit Court in Colorado. If you support the movement for marrigae equality in Utah, this is a must-attend as these guys will be going head-to-head against the governer.


Skipping down to Saturday, AwkwardFest 2014 will take place at the Utah Arts Hub. This will markt he sixth year that the Awkward Hour podcast has been rolling along with it's host Brian Staker at the helm. The evening is due to have a ton of music as well as art exhibitions, craft booths and of course comedy from local standups. Be sure to check it out this Saturday from Noon-8 p.m.


Going into the following week, we'll discuss this event more down the line, but Salt Lake Comic Con's next event, FanXperience will take over the Salt Palace for three straight days, hosting a huge lineup of guests and panels. Not to mention an open floor of amazing booths to check out.


The following Friday, April 18, Westminster College will play host to an event called Until The Violence Stops. A benefit concert featuring bands like Bombshell Academy, Wildcat Strike, Juana Ghani and more to benefit the Rape Recovery Center. It is so worth the cause, be sure to check it out.


And then finally in two weeks on April 19, the Utah Pride Center presents Queer Prom! The annual event for LGBT youth between the ages of 14-20 will take over the City Library, and give those who are unable to attend their own high school proms a chance to be out and proud for an evening to remember. 


As for the blog... Over the next couple weeks we'll talk about FanX, a couple of performances in tehatre and dance, a local letterpress company, an indie magazine and a local motorcycle shop. At least, that's the plan for now, as always, we'll see what happens.
