SPY HOP STREET PARTY, 511 WEST 200 SOUTH, Friday, Aug. 16, 5 p.m., Free
Salt Lake City's Spy Hop, the arts-heavy after-school program that teaches teens their way around making music, video games, film and the like, is having a big-time party this weekend to show off some of the work of its students. A Spy Hop house DJ will spin tunes while visitors much on tacos and other snacks, learn how to screenprint with the folks from Copper Palate Press and play with Spy Hop's Animation Station to help make a stop-motion film. The nearby Art Access Gallery will be showcasing fine art done by Spy Hop students, the B Boy Federation will perform at 6:15, and later guests will be treated to trailers from this year's PitchNic films, the short features that fill Spy Hop's annual student film fest. Consider it a perfect evening to introduce yourself to one of the coolest youth art programs in town.
