Tony’s Gay Agenda

CONCERTS

Well, two concerts on a wide spectrum of what some might call good versus evil will be offered up on Friday the 13th: the Utah Symphony pays tribute to the iconic gay idol, Babs; and an androgynous Ariel Pink mingles in psychedelic pop, chillwave and lo-fi musical styles. So go ahead, pick your poison; either way it’s sure to bring good luck. Also this month, the Utah Symphony does Mahler and Southern sweetheart, Lucinda Williams takes the Capitol Theatre stage.
