Moab's Alpine to Slickrock 50 Mile Race

First conceived in 2004, the MAS 50 is the event that brought attention to Moab’s trail running scene. Alpine to Slickrock says it all, where else can you cross three mountain passes at or above 11,000 ft. and finish on beautiful slickrock terrain? The MAS 50 is an ultra that will leave even the most seasoned runner wishing he had trained harder! Past runners have even referred to this race as a "mini Hardrock!" If a gritty, physically challenging race is on your to-do list, then you will want to add the MAS 50 to your ultra calendar.

Blitzen Trapper

Blitzen Trapper was founded in Portland, Oregon in 2000 by a group of native Pacific Northwesterners, who played around town endlessly to skeleton crowds and gave away an impressive stream of garage recordings on CDR for years. Then came the Blitzen Trapper record in 2003, and Field Rexx in 2005. But it wasn't until 2007's self-released Wild Mountain Nation made a big splash that they finally hit the road, setting the stage for Furr's release the following year. Powered by its title track and by the G-funk-inflected "Black River Killer" that record became an unlikely hit and the group suddenly found itself on network television and in glossy magazines and astride colossal festival stages. So they released more music, toured the Western world incessantly, got to work with the likes of Wilco, Stephen Malkmus, Guided By Voices and Belle & Sebastian, and slowly became the band they'd always dreamed they would be. Blitzen Trapper are frontman and songwriter Eric Earley, Marty Marquis, Brian Adrian Koch, Michael Van Pelt and Erik Menteer.

Sean Morello: Constellations & Supersymmetries

Sean Morello’s exhibition Constellations & Supersymmetries is currently at Utah Museum of Contemporary Art until Aug. 1. His work features a series of collages and abstracts made with discarded and found materials. Morello adapts his title and theory to describe the way his symmetrical and art historical compositions impose a metaphysical order on the chaos that is capitalism, mass consumption, and waste.

Rock Art Hot Spots

Utah is home to some of the nation's most spectacular archaeological sites, from the famed rock art galleries of Nine Mile Canyon to the spectacular ruins of Cedar Mesa. But there are hundreds of other localities—lesser known places with names like Sego Canyon and Buckhorn Wash—where the public can experience the remnants of thousands of years of human occupation. Participants will receive a handout describing the location of over 20 fantastic public rock art sites in Utah which can be reached by car and most of these sites will be discussed in class. The rock art will be put in context of what is known of the people who created it.

Twilight Concert Series: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

For more than 15 years, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club has carried the torch for true rock and roll. From the guitar-heavy sonic aggression of the earlier BRMC years, to the blues-Americana stylings of studio releases like Howl (2005) and Baby 81 (2007) to the present, guitarist Peter Hayes, bassist Robert Levon Been and drummer Leah Shapiro, are unabashed in creating their own unflinching, true rock and roll sound.

The most recent release by this firebrand rock troupe sees them at their most dynamic. Their 2013 album, Specter at the Feast, ventures into diverse sonic territory delivering their most ambitious offering yet. It’s an album of impossible dichotomies; opposing sounds amalgamate into a seamless, entirely coherent package that rumbles with driving rhythms and soars with skyward-arcing guitar howls.

BRMC are set to release a three disc album and DVD – Live in Paris – featuring footage and recordings from a stop at the Theatre Trianon during their sold out 2014 European tour.

Catch Black Rebel Motorcycle Club co-headlining the July 23rd Twilight Concert Series performance with Father John Misty.

An Evening with Toby Beard

West Australian Blues/roots/indi artist Toby is so much more than your average singer-songwriter. She powers through each live performance with her own lyrical talent and fierce, dynamic vocals, with audiences revelling in the genuinity and honesty of both her songwriting and her performance. Her compelling vocals and the way in which she captures her audience can’t be explained but just needs to be heard and seen. Her live performance truly is a treat. Toby is passionate, raw, fun and powerful, with a mix of soul, blues, folk, rock and a splash of gypsy hick.

Twilight Concert Series: Prhyme with Adrian Younge

The burgeoning collaboration between legendary East Coast producer DJ Premier and veteran Detroit-bred emcee Royce da 5’9” – PRhyme – resonates as both a head-nodding call to classic hip hop action as well as a raw response to the short attention span hip-pop audiences of today.

“Right now, everybody seems like they are programmed to listen to singles and gravitate towards the popular songs,” Royce da 5’9” explains the thinking that led to PRhyme. “Our thing is to teach people how to not skim through the albums because their attention span is short. I want people to appreciate the fact that we didn’t compromise in lieu of the environment. In order to try to change the way that people digest music, we had to take a leap of faith.” 

PRhyme with Adrian Younge will perform on July 30th with Bishop Nehru supporting. Best of Utah DJ of the year, J Godina will open the evening.
