A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Calendar

June 16

Salt Lake Acting Company’s “Saturday’s Voyeur” opens today-preview tickets are cheaper, so get there soon. This year, the thespian SLACers will be poking fun at the ongoing debate over the Crazy Goat Saloon and the Utah State Legislature. It’s longer, funnier and cheaper than a lap dance, we promise. Call ARTTIX at 355-ARTS or SLAC at 363-SLAC for ticket sales and more information.

At Lo-Fi, The Pleased will bring together its mighty ’80s influences to make Brit dance-clash magic. Leave your Wayfarers at home. Call Lo-Fi at 949-6324.

Tired of indie rock? Our d-o-g-g from MTV’s Making The Band 2, Chopper, will be at Club Vortex Wednesday. Give him a big ups for us, and don’t forget the cheesecake.

June 17

Bear Vs. Shark will play at Lo-Fi tonight with Name Taken and Jonah, battling mall-punk labeling and schizophrenia. We’ve got 4:1 on Shark, and our bookie is still taking wages (Union suite 240, ask for Asad).

June 18

Harry O’s in Park City will keep kids off the corner with England’s revolutionary garage-hop act The Streets, alongside varsity b-boy squad The Pharcyde and turntable warriors The X-Ecutioners. Bring a poncho-minds will be blown. Tickets available at all SmithTix outlets.

June 19

Professional, they aren’t. But entertaining? Sell your grandmother’s cat, buy a new pair of Ones and go get schooled by Main Event, Hot Sauce and The Professor with the And 1 Mixtape tour at the E Center. Wanna get in? SmithTix-holla’ at your boy!

June 20

John Hiatt plays Red Butte Garden tonight. Avoid the embarrassment of seeing your parents get rowdy by sitting in the back. Waaay back. With a flask. Before you sneak in, call Red Butte at 325-7328.

June 21

Sean Costello brings the blues to Club Sound (328-0255). Why is he so sad, you ask? Because he doesn’t look as cool as Elvis in horn-rims, duh.

June 22

Aussie punks of The Living End bring their girlfriend Maxeen to In The Venue. For extra pretense with your ticket order, call 328-0255.
