Written by Tony Hobday
25Friday — Ginger & The Gents

Local group Ginger & The Gents puts their own spin on the classic story we know as rock ‘n’ roll. It’s an honest perspective that’s forward and to the point. No frills, just a whole lot of soul to blow back your body hair. Each song is inspired by real-life experiences, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself resonating with the story line. It’s a story of trials and triumphs that hit the gut, the head, the heart, and for some, the gonads.

With sultry vocals, driving rhythms, and engaging guitar compositions, Ginger & The Gents deliver lively, passionate and memorable performances that endear them by all ages, walks of life, and rabbit holes – just as they had at the 2018 Utah Pride Festival.
The Royal, 4760 S. 900 East, 8 p.m. Tickets $6 adv/$8 dos, smithstix.com


— Mindy Gledhill

You don’t want to miss this long-anticipated release concert for award-winning indie pop artist, Mindy Gledhill and her gregarious new album, Rabbit Hole. The Provo-based LGBT ally, who performed at Encircle’s 2018 Ignite event, won’t have a hometown show again for a while as she will be on the road, so make sure to get your tickets. Also, the amazing Nymph(o?) will be opening the show with an acoustic set..
Velour, 135 N. University Ave, Provo, 7 p.m. Tickets $15, eventbrite.com

26Saturday — Front Row Film Roast of ‘Labyrinth’

So, Brewvies Cinema Pub is hotsing a “roast” of Jim Henson’s Oscar Award-snubbed fantasy flick Labyrinth just because the star, David Bowie, looked better than a Chia pet-nominated Richard Simmons. But I digress, because any chance to see the late David Bowie is the best reason to find an expensive hairstylist. Bam!

The event’s dance-magic comedians will be in the front row, joking, roasting and ripping on Jim Henson’s most beloved masterpiece.
Brewvies, 677 S. 200 West., 10 p.m. Tickets $10, 21+ event

— Dounia

Raised in Queens and Morocco, Dounia burst onto the scene in 2017 and since has amassed millions of streams, all the while championing LGBTQ rights and pushing a body-positive agenda. With her smooth flow, witty lyrics and unapologetic views, she is the forward-thinking voice of a generation. She is one of several LGBTA performers during the Sundance Film Festival.
ASCAP Music Cafe, 751 Main St., Park City, 2 p.m. Open to all festival credential holders (21 and older).

27Sunday —MILCK

LA-based singer-songwriter and artist fueled by social change, MILCK, recently released her debut EP This Is Not the End. The seven-song collection features her single “Quiet,” which in 2017 became widely known as the unofficial anthem of the Women’s March movement, after MILCK teamed up with two dozen female singers to perform a cappella flash mobs of the song on the streets in Washington, DC.
ASCAP Music Cafe, 751 Main St., Park City, 3:30 p.m., and 4:15 p.m., on Monday. Open to all Festival credential holders (21 and older).
