Anthony Romero

He tackles the big questions of democracy every day. ANTHONY ROMERO the Executive Director of the ACLU comes to the Eccles for a landmark discussion, expanding on his TED Talk, about the ways in which history, art and politics intersect. Wherever you stand on the political spectrum, the cultural commentary from this front-line leader—the first openly-gay person and the first Latino to serve in his role—will be engaging, thought-provoking, and discussion-fueling. Expect criminal justice to be part of the conversation.


Jake Bugg

Shuffling, playlisting and cherry-picking your favourite songs is all well and good, but sometimes you can’t beat sitting down with an album and playing it from start to finish. An album that sounds like it was recorded in one room, with the same group of people and that perfectly captures a specific moment in time.


Bulbs and Blooms

Every fall, Red Butte Garden volunteers and staff plant additional bulbs throughout the Garden and this March, April & May, the Garden will boast a colorful array of over 460,000 blooming bulbs! Of those over 230,000 Daffodils. Other bulbs include Allium, Anemone, Calochortus, Camassia, Chionodoxa, Cyclamen, Erythronium, Fritillaria, Galanthus, Hyacinth, Hyacinthoides, Ipheion, Iris, Leucojum, Muscari, Scilla, Triteleia, and more. (No Tulips however, because deer love them and we try to keep deer out of the Garden.)

Built to Spill

Twenty years on from first signing to Warner Bros. Records, Built To Spill is set to return in 2015 with its eighth studio album, Untethered Moon. That’s now two complete decades that one of America’s leading “indie rock” bands has happily made its home on a major label, and in the process redefined that clumsy descriptor of independence by operating wholly and consistently under its own steam, taking the proper time to craft timeless songs and playing endless, epic shows to a growing grip of fans each year. Under the command of its constant leader, Doug Martsch, as well as a new rhythm section, Built To Spill’s creative process continues to ebb, flow and evolve in its own orbit, reemerging on record for the first time since 2009’s There Is No Enemy with ten new songs that fit at once into the band’s resonant catalog while infusing fresh energy into that signature sound.

A View from the Bridge

Arthur Miller’s dark and passionate 1956 drama set on the Brooklyn waterfront tells a story of tragedy, love and betrayal in an Italian-American immigrant community. A longshoreman by trade, Eddie Carbone is confident of his place in the working-class neighborhood he calls home. That life changes when he agrees to harbor his immigrant cousins. A love affair exposes a dark family secret and suspicion, jealousy and betrayal soon follow.

Gill Landry

Gill Landry, formerly of Old Crow Medicine Show, will be at the State Room on the 5th. Love and hate need each other for either to have meaning and I feel like it’s the same way with people. I’d like to believe love always wins coming down the stretch—it just might not be the way you envisioned it. In my experience love often isn’t what I expected and wouldn’t be half as good if it was. That basically is what I wrote this album about.
