An Opportunity to Update Our Photo Archives
Tonight kicks off Part I of a very special episode on the WS—the Will Sartain CD Release Show! The bassist for Redd Tape has branched out, stretching his talent over solo territory—and he wants you to reap the fruits of his labor. Beep! will debut at the Urban Lounge with the help of Tolchock Trio and The Downers. A second engagement, scheduled for Friday at Kilby Court, will feature the Coyote Hoods. Come support young ingenuity at the Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East and Kilby Court, 330 W. 700 South.

Sex Tapes and Rehab
Poor Axl Rose. He tried to make a comeback but failed more miserably than “former” substance abuser Scott Weiland (good thing he cleaned HIS act up—oh, wait…). Apparently Bret Michaels thinks he can succeed where so many other rockers have failed. After 18 years with Poison, Michaels is ready prove that there’s more to him than strippers, car and motorcycle crashes, fistfights and unbelievable riches. He’s talented, dammit, and you better like what he has to say—maybe something about a little video and Pam Anderson? No. He’s serious this time. Serious. Come see the man, the myth, the legend at DV8, 115 S. West Temple.

Bite My Lip
The Red Bennies and The Downers have hit the big time! The two local bands are apparently becoming more than just a gritty lower-city favorite. That’s right, they’re moving on up the canyon, ready to take a ritzier Park City by storm. Come see how snow bunnies and extreme enthusiasts react to the hipster elite at Harry O’s, 475 Main Street in Park City.

Midnight Movie: “Being John Malkovich”
The first wonderfully bizarre film from director Spike Jonze’s and writer Charlie Kaufman’s wonderfully unique minds. Come see the characters of John Cusack and Cameron Diaz who inspired the Halloween costumes of RED’s editor and Web designer. If that doesn’t pull you in, then perhaps the film’s brilliant social satire will. It starts at 11:59 p.m. as part of the Tower Theatre’s (876 E. 900 South) glorious Midnight Movie Series, every Friday and Saturday night.

More Than One Love
I wonder what it would be like to attend a Marley reunion. Just how far does the rasta bloodline extend? Maybe it’s simply impossible to cram every member of the family into one space and that’s why there’s such a proliferation of concerts featuring multiple strains of its legendary patriarch. The latest tribute to Bob Marley features Rita Marley & Family, TOK, Damien Marley, Bounty Killer, The One Foundation and more. Feel the kinship at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, 3300 S. 1400 West (West Valley City). The concert starts at noon. For further information call 1-800-888-8499.

Better Than “The Truth” Campaigns
Nicotine doesn’t care whether or not you’re heterosexual. The addictive drug swings both ways, infecting all smokers with equal aplomb. Unfortunately, this unbiased poison makes for a rather unhealthy, codependent relationship—and breaking up is hard to do. Sometimes quitting requires a patch, gum or a trip to NA. Another alternative entails watching men in makeup, heels and tight skirts parade around on stage at the Gay American Smoke Out, the “Last Drag” drag show for smokers and non-smokers, GLBT or not. Free entrance and free quit kits will be at Westminster College's Gore Auditorium. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. For more information call (801) 539-8800. Leave those Marlboros at home.

Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
An all-star line-up is coming to the west side! Bring your best friend, your neighbors and your dog to an event sure to thrill even the most agoraphobic people in your life! It’s all-ages, so keep that flask in your pocket because Redd Tape, Tolchock Trio, Form of Rocket, Marc Olsen and Steve Turner (from Mudhoney) are going to rock you sober. Or not. It’s going to kick ass, so just come to Kilby Court, 330 W. 700 East.

Film Front: “Provincial Actors”
Polish director Agnieszka Holland’s “Provincial Actors” is a joyous look at a local theater production of a play that an aging actor thinks might have his big breakthrough role. The screening is part of the University of Utah’s Film Front, showing 35-mm prints most Sundays at 7:00 p.m. during the school year.

Some Girls Like Huggy Bear
Sick Lipstick is not an expired tube of Cover Girl—it’s a dance-punk revolution fronted by a spastic female vocalist. Tonight the group will be appearing with the Vexers and the Tyrades, both of which demonstrate a similarly postmodern sound. Local group Alchemy is also scheduled to perform, although it is neither dance nor punk—just rawkin’ roll. It all goes down at Kilby Court, 330 W. 700 s.

Artificial Trees and Trans-Siberian Orchestra
It’s that time again, when the continuous barrage of Christmas music starts streaming over loudspeakers in every imaginable public venue. ’Tis the season to dust off Kenny G, Luther Vandross, Manheim Steamroller, Charlie Brown…and welcome back to town the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, ready to thrill with its 60-piece orchestra. The group’s hyperbolic sonic salute to the season of giving provides the perfect soundtrack to a holiday increasingly lost in commercialization. Get emotional at the E Center.

Three For The Price Of None
The Wolves, Red Bennies and Blue Hour understand what it means to be dirt broke. That’s why these three local acts have scheduled an appearance at the University of Utah. These bands typically perform at clubs where the cover is reasonably low, but for some, only FREE is the right price. Now cheapskates have no excuse to miss out. The thrills kick off at 7 p.m. at the U’s Crimson Underground. And it’s free.
