Twilight came and went, but there's still so much left to do this weekend. In fact, you'll get to see Salt Lake's wiley, wild side, with some high culture thrown in.
FRIDAY, AUG 27 7 PM
The Salt Lake Acting Company kicks off their Fearless Fringe Festival tonight with Stephen Brown's Yoga Confidential: A Rat Bastard's Inside Guide to Yoga & the Surrounding Regions. Brown teamed up with Saturday's Voyeur writer Nancy Borgenicht to create the humorous theater/dance crossover about all that's wonderful and terrible with yoga in the USA. The show centers on a yoga teacher who loses faith and then finds it again. The audience can expect witty comedy, dance and according to SLAC, "adult language, very immature content and unforgettable forays into crudeness." Sounds like our definition of a good time.

Aperture Gallery will hold their Annual Local Artist Showcase, exhibiting fashion design pieces, photography, sculpture, multi-media, oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, graphite drawings and recycled glass art.

If the visual feast isn't enough for you, there will be food from local restaurants and live music from Pablo Blaqk and Bicycle Voice.

This one will be a hit. The Doobie Brothers will take over Red Butte Garden and enchant Salt Lake City with THE definition of "classic." (They're actually finishing up another studio album, so these guys are still in the game. Of course, they never left.)
Here they are playing in Chicago. Enjoy.
