ABOUT THE ARTIST: We are "Rubigo Pearl". "Rubigo" means "rust" in Latin, so we bring a soulful, bluesy sound that is raw and rustic, but also shiny and fresh.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Danny Dallin & Dagwood are back again—backer than ever—and are desperate to the point of discomfort in their wild desire to sing and play the songs of music to the people of their favorite public library system: Salt Lake City's very own. They count among their number a whopping ONE advanced degree in Library Sciences; and so, in listening to their tuneful soundings, the audience gains opportunity to answer their heart's most querulous query, asked (and left woefully unanswered) with each life-giving thump: "What melodies sleep in a librarian's brainpan?"

Painting Figures

Bomba Marilé invites you to join us for a full day of free music and workshops related to Puerto Rican bomba and how we paint figures as we dance. We are thrilled to be bringing back, directly from Puerto Rico, renowned bomba practitioners Nuno Calderon Pou and Marcos Peñaloza Pica. Join us on Saturday August 24th at the Sorenson Unity Center 1383 S 900 W SLC from 10am-7pm. Thanks to the Western States Arts Federation, National Endowment for the Arts, the Sorenson Unity Center, and the Zoo Arts and Parks, the entire day is free and open to all. The morning will consist of a lecture on the history of and making of Vejigante masks from Loiza. The afternoon will have a free bomba dance workshop focusing on making figures in our dance. The evening will include live bomba music outdoors in which Bomba Marilé and guests artists will be painting with our feet as we dance. The fabric we paint on will later be used to create skirts for future bomba dancing. Afterwards, the audience is invited to sing, drum, and dance with us in a space of healing and creativity. 10am-12 Lecture on Vejigante Masks by Marcos Peñaloza Pica 2-4pm Bomba Dance Workshop by Nuno Calderon Pou 4:30-7pm Live Bomba Music and Dance

Gregory Alan Isakov

Ticket and event info: https://thestateroompresents.com/state-room-presents/gregory-alan-isakov-4 Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and now calling Colorado home, horticulturist/musician Gregory Alan Isakov has cast an impressive presence on the indie-rock and folk worlds with his six full-length studio albums: That Sea, The Gambler; This Empty Northern Hemisphere; The Weatherman; Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony; Evening Machines (nominated for a Grammy award for Best Folk Album), and his newest album, Appaloosa Bones. Isakov tours internationally with his band, and has performed with several national symphony orchestras across the United States. Isakov’s new record, Appaloosa Bones, was released on August 18, 2023 (via Dualtone/Suitcase Town Music). Of the album, MOJO states, “Prime Isakov: his velvet baritone glides over elegant and shimmering Wild West mirages.” The Associated Press proclaims, “He has that magical ability to convey both urgency and grandeur at the same time…Simple. Straightforward. Utterly evocative.” And No Depressiondeclares, “this is Isakov’s genius. He turns a short poem into a magnificent piece of music that can captivate for hours.” In support of the new record, Isakov has confirmed an extensive international tour through 2024, including the US, Canada, Europe, United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Australia. When he is not on the road, he runs Starling Farm (a small farm in Boulder County), which provides produce to CSA members, restaurants, and Community Food Share (a local food bank).
