Believe In Miracles.
Last week, a teacher in Oklahoma was fired for taking 12 of her students on an unauthorized candy run in her Honda Accord. But the firing, school officials say, had less to do with the fact that she didn't send home permission slips beforehand as much as it was that she locked two 12-year-olds in her trunk during the journey.
Good thing, then, that school's out for Christmas break these next several days. And, tonight, you have our permission to cram as many of your pals into your compact car on the way to the following goings-on as you see fit.
Maybe just don't get caught, though.
Revolt at Three Links
SLC street punks Revolt are better at styling their hair into elaborate, spiked formations than they are at the guitar, which actually isn't the huge detriment it sounds like. As I'm sure the leather-clad band would be quick to remind you, attitude is everything. Local outfits The Scandals, TX and The Wife and Kids open.
Miracle on 34th Street at The Magnolia
More than just one of the most classic Christmas flicks of them all, Miracle on 34th Street was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar in 1947 and later became the first feature length film to become colorized.
Videogame Night at Renfields Corner
Take it from us: Alcohol and retro videogames are always a winning combination.
Future Funk Lounge at Sundown (Free)
Something happens to a person when they say the phrase “Booty Thrill” out loud. There's just a sort of fun vibe that comes with hearing those words — one that lends itself well to cutting loose and forgetting about the daily grind. It's a name that sort of says it all. Right up front, one knows there won't be much time between the moment they press play to the moment their ass begins to twitch, antsy to get moving. Consider it a holiday treat, then, that the Dallas-based producer Booty Thrill will join residents Mikey Rodge and Jumbii at their Future Funk Lounge weekly, along with fellow guest Skrause tonight. As always, cover is free and drafts are half-off.
