That sounds impressive, but as relative newcomers they only have two albums.</span></p> <p><span><img alt="" height="480" src="/site_media/uploads/May%202016/img_1241.jpg" width="640"></span></p> <p><span><span>In a bold move declaring that they are bigger than their biggest hit, the band played, “Ho Hey” four songs in—lead singer, Wesley Shutlz, remarked slyly, “Oh, you know the words?” as the crowd sang along. A few songs after that, the band headed, flanked by security, to a small makeshift stage at the opposite end of the amphitheater to play a few songs to the people in the way back, including “Subterranean Homesick Blues" in honor of Bob Dylan's birthday.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>The move to the smaller stage ended up serving as a intermission of sorts—Shutlz returned to the larger one solo to play “Slow It Down.” His voice, unassuming and raspy, aided by the acoustic guitar, made for a powerful moment. And the moment became more powerful when he was joined back onstage by the rest of his band. The Lumineers strength is is in melodies that are haunting and joyful all at once joined with powerful crescendoing music, driven by <span>Neyla Pekarek's cello. The end result is infectious, fun and dare I say, adorable.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>The crowd, a assemblage of drunk and sometimes rowdy young people in skinny jeans, flannel and bohemian dresses sang along to every word of every song, even the newest releases, as noted by Shultz. They swayed, they waved their bottles in the air. They also seemed to not understand the basic etiquette of the venue, making the security detail work a little harder than usual. And at one point, one particular young man decided to try to start a fight with me (and my 15 year old daughter). And so, as a result, I cannot report on the encore at Red Butte. I'm certain it was a boot-stomping, soul revival. It's just too bad that some of their fans were too busy to notice.</span></span></span></p>Christie GehrkeThu, 26 May 2016 21:12:00 +0000 The HiveNew DABC, Same As the Old<p class="p1"> </p> <p class="p1"><img alt="" height="413" src="/site_media/uploads/December%202015/herbertbottlecu.jpg" width="450"></p> <p class="p1">As the DABC Commission tightens rules on allowing bars <a href="" target="_blank">near churches</a> and continues to jerk Brewvies around for showing R-rated movies <a href="" target="_blank">near cocktails</a>, we long for the happy days early this year when the Governor’s office and DABC chieftains were <a href="" target="_blank">working together</a> to improve customer service and the working conditions of liquor-store workers.</p> <p class="p2">Under the guidance of efficiency guru Kirsten Cox and spinmaster Mike Mower, Gary Herbert promised a veritable workers’ paradise where restaurant liquor orders are quickly filled, special-order fine wines are a few key strokes away and Zion Curtains are just a bad memory.</p> <p class="p2">Unfortunately, the Lege has gone home, Gary is safely ahead in reelection polls and the public has forgotten the turmoil at the DABC. And, oh yeah, we still have Zion Curtains.</p> <p class="p1">We did however get an excellent primer in how government works under Gary.

Time-traveling Orrin.</p> <p>Sen. Orrin Hatch, who already leaps the FDC in a single bound to protect the supplement industry, wrote a <em>Deseret News</em> op-ed in response to meeting with Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. Sadly, Hatch explained, despite the cordial face-to-face, he can't support Garland's appointment.</p> <p>There was just one slight problem: <em>The meeting between Hatch and Garland hadn't yet taken place.</em> In short, Hatch had traveled into the future, met with Garland, then flew back to the present to write the op-ed blowing Garland off.</p> <p><img alt="" height="201" src="/site_media/uploads/May%202016/dnews2.jpg" width="701"></p> <p>Hatch recognized Garland's qualifications and merit, in the op-ed, yet said the meeting that hadn't occurred had not changed his mind. “The Senate should consider a Supreme Court nominee after this presidential election cycle.”</p> <p>In reality, which is getting hard to come by in politics these days, Hatch's staff wrote the op-ed in advance and sent it to their trusty co-conspirators at the <em>DesNews</em>. Being prepared is always a good thing, right?</p> <p>Neither Hatch's office or the White House won't say exactly when the momentous meeting is/was supposed to happen—but what's the difference? We know how it went down in Orrin's future world. </p> <p>BTW, the <em>DesNews</em> quickly removed the future-is-now op-ed from its website, apologizing for the “unfortunate error,” but didn't seem to be bothered that they had taken part in Hatch's charade of fairness. If you try to read it now, this is what you get. When news breaks, the <em>DNews</em>, fixes it, as they say.</p> <p><img alt="" height="274" src="/site_media/uploads/May%202016/dnews.jpg" width="640"></p> <p>Possibly, the best lesson from this fiasco is how desperately Utah needs media that isn't in snuggling in bed with the state's congressional delegation.</p> <p><em><strong>Nicole Cowdell contributed to this blog.</strong></em></p>Glen WarcholThu, 26 May 2016 18:04:00 +0000 The HiveTake Flight with Tracy Aviary&#39;s Ready to Hatch Fundraiser<p><span style=""><span style=""><span style="">On Friday, June 3, Tracy Aviary will be hosting “Ready to Hatch,” its biggest fundraiser of the year.

The band was very aware their audience was patiently waiting for the headlining Lumineers, but they still had a contagious energy that made them a perfect start to the evening. Strong guitar solos and unique vocals gave the band a great stage presence. These guys were having fun and getting into their music. My concert spot was between a middle-aged couple and a younger millenial pair, and both groups kept remarking how much they loved the sound and energy of the Sleepwalkers. That’s a pretty great reach.</p> <p>The Sleepwalkers have a retro sound that hearkens back to the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll storytelling highlighted by bands like the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. Many of their songs have funky piano solos and psychedelic influences. Crowd favorites were “Cocaine” and “Cheers,” catchy numbers that highlighted the diverse talents of this eclectic group.</p> <p>I’m excited to see where this group goes. They’ve got an old-school tour van and a groovy sound. The Sleepwalkers are accompanying the Lumineers for their 2016 Cleopatra World Tour. I think it’s safe to say that anyone who comes to see the shows will be humming along to the Sleepwalkers tunes the morning after.   </p> <p>For more music from the Sleepwalkers, click <a href="" target="_blank">here.</a></p> <p>For information about upcoming Red Butte shows, click <a href="/blog/2016/02/24/red-butte-the-right-way/" target="_blank">here</a>. </p>Salt Lake magazineThu, 26 May 2016 17:26:52 +0000 The HiveSummer Cocktail Contest Returns<p class="p1"><img alt="" height="974" src="/site_media/uploads/May%202016/img_6468.jpg" width="650"></p> <p class="p1">Mixologists who think they’ve got what it takes are invited to compete in Park City Area Restaurant Association’s annual summer cocktail contest for a chance to be crowned Park City’s top bartender, take home $200, and walk away with some serious bragging rights.</p> <p class="p5">Starting July 1, fans have four weeks to sample and vote online for their favorite libations, rating each on flavor and presentation.

You're kidding yourself if you say you didn't want a little piece of that magic.</p> <p>The Lantern Fest makes that bucket list wish possible with a release of thousands of glowing lanterns into the night sky. The celebration is coming back to Salt Lake City on Saturday, August 20. Click <a href="" target="_blank">here</a> to purchase tickets. This is the second Lantern Fest event in Salt Lake in 2016, and the first was in April, when nearly 9000 people lived out their Disney-fueled dreams. The evening's family-friendly schedule includes live music, s'mores roasting, games, food truck fare, dance contests and more leading up to the lantern release. The evening ends with the lighting and release of thousands of lanterns to the tune of (you guessed it) “At Last I See the Light” from <em>Tangled</em>.</p> <p>I went to the Lantern Fest in Salt Lake last September, and it was definitely worth it. I roasted a perfectly golden s'more without lighting myself on fire, I made new friends around the campfire and I got the perfect Instagram-worthy photo of my floating lantern among thousands of others in the sky.</p> <p>Each kit comes with markers for lantern decorating. Participants are encouraged to individualize their lanterns by drawing designs or writing down dreams, regrets, or goals. If you're worried that all those lanterns will end up littering the highway, don't. The Lantern Fest sends specially trained Lantern Chasers in vehicles to make sure every last biodegradable lantern is disposed of properly.</p> <p>Early registration tickets are $25 until June 10. Each <a href="" target="_blank">admission ticket</a> comes with an entrance wristband, s'mores kit, lighter, a lantern and markers for decorating.
