Samba Fogo Presents Ouca-Listen

Samba Fogo proudly presents: Ouca – Listen April 26th through 28th.  This is an evening of live music and dance, on fire. Drawing on rich Afro-Brazilian culture and mythology, Samba Fogo ignites the stage as they weave traditional and contemporary dance, fire spinning, and diverse live music. The concert will feature original musical compositions, sound scores, and high-energy choreography, performed by a cast of over 35 spectacular artists, including a dance company of 12. The live band for this year’s concert includes vocalists Solange Gomes and George Edgar Brown, hailing from São Paulo and Brasilia, Brazil. These talented vocalists will be backed by a string quintet, a horn line, and a mobile “bateria” Brazilian drumline – a diverse and dynamic orchestra, providing a rhythmic and musical backdrop inspired by traditions from Cuba, Africa, and Brazil.  Tickets available at arttix.artsaltlake.org


Declutter Drive at the Ogden Restore

In celebration of Earth Day, the Habitat Ogden ReStore is kicking off their Declutter Drive all month long in April. Spring is coming, which also means that Spring cleaning is essential in most homes. The Declutter Drive is to challenge residents to donate items to the ReStore rather than throwing them into the dump. In celebration of Earth Day (April 22nd), the Declutter Drive will hopefully bring awareness to residents in Weber and Davis Counties about the nonprofit ReStore. Home improvement Items can be donated to a nonprofit thrift store rather than putting them in the landfill. The Habitat Ogden ReStore offers a free pick-up service for residents in Weber and Davis Counties. This can be helpful for those who have large items, including furniture, appliances, lumber, and so much more. A donation receipt will be given for IRS tax-deductible purposes. Drop-off donations are acceptable from Tuesday thru Saturdays from 10 AM to 5:30 PM. The Habitat ReStore is a nonprofit home improvement thrift store and donation center. It is operated and affiliated with the local Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties (HabitatWD). The goal is to keep good and working home improvement items out of the landfill. The donated items are sold at a fraction of the cost to the general public. Proceeds from sales go back towards HabitatWD. The funds are used for building and repairing homes for local low-income families in need. The Ogden ReStore is located at 3111 Wall Avenue Ogden UT 84401. Operating hours are Tuesday thru Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM. For the year 2017, it was calculated that the local Habitat Ogden ReStore diverted over 303 tons of items from the landfill. This is the equivalent to the weight of 30 box trucks. Items that can be donated include appliances, artwork, building materials and lumber, cabinets, 2013 or newer dishwashers, doors, electrical items, new flooring, furniture, hardware, LED TVs, lighting, new paint, plumbing, tools, and windows. For more information, please visit the site. Anyone can shop. Anyone can donate. And anyone can volunteer at the local Ogden ReStore. The Declutter Drive will begin April 1st and end on April 30th. When you donate to the nonprofit Habitat ReStore in April, you will receive a $5 coupon to use before May 1st. You can schedule your free pick-up now or drop-off your unwanted home improvement items today. Call the ReStore at 801-393-3287.

Wasatch Comic Con

One of our tenants, The Nerd Store, is putting on Wasatch Comic Con on April 27th & 28th. It is a Con for Creators meaning the people who created the comics and stories we love. Kevin Eastman is a highlight of the event and he created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We are expecting between 3000-5000 people. It is going to be a great event and we would love some positive exposure for the city of West Valley if you’d like to stop by. http://wasatchcon.com/

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

In early 2016, the release of Talk Tight put Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever on the map with glowing reviews from SPIN, Stereogum, and Pitchfork, praising them as stand-outs even among the fertile landcape of Melbourne music. Chock full of snappy riffs, spritely drumming and quick- witted wordplay, Talk Tight was praised "for the precision of their melodies, the streamlined sophistication of their arrangements, and the undercurrent of melancholy that motivates every note." (Pitchfork)
