Tonight's lineup:

  • Oct. 11: A Night in the Mexican Riviera, The INN Between's 4th Annual Casino Night featuring live music, delicious food, spectacular silent and live auctions, and of course Vegas-style casino games. This year, they will honor those who have passed with a traditional Dia de los Muertos Ofrenda. Click here for tickets. Early-bird pricing ends Sept. 30. 

Journalist Abby Martin on Gaza Fights For Freedom. It is her debut feature film, started while reporting in Palestine, where she was denied entry into Gaza by the Israeli government on the accusation she was a “propagandist.” So, Abby connected with a team of journalists in Gaza to produce the film through the blockaded border.

  • 9/25: Martin. The Answer Coalition brings to you the Salt Lake City premiere of the newly released The Empire Files documentary, "Gaza Fights For Freedom." Hosted at University of Utah Union Theater. Click here to watch the trailer.

Recruited as a child soldier in war-torn Southern Sudan, Emmanuel Jal escaped his situation and unbelievable challenges to become a successful and acclaimed recording artist and peace ambassador. Jal is in town this week as a guest of the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy and its World Affairs Lecture Series and The Barbara & Norman Tanner Center for Human Rights.

Burlesque performer and activist Madazon Can-Can to wrap the show. For her Master's thesis she created a play called "Genit-HELL YEAH. Her work was named best outstanding solo show at this year’s Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival. But performing it has been dicey, given our local liquor and nudity laws.
