Orgone

For over a decade, Orgone has been steaming up nightclubs and drenching the largest music festivals in the country in sweat. Serving a cold-blooded concoction of deep soul, rare funk and afro-disco with a raw rock star edge that is uniquely LA, Orgone's music grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet, and shoves you out onto the dance floor. Tough, sexy, and adventurous, this sonic muscle car shifts through multiple gears from slyly slinky to seismically cinematic, while remaining spacious and uncluttered. eMusic says: "Their music is terrifically unfussy, big slabs of grizzled R&B, greasy as fatback, and thick as a very particular kind of smoke." For their searing live performances and warm, dirty homegrown recordings, Orgone has been called "One of the heaviest acts we've heard in years" by Dusty Groove America.

Happy

Happiness. Is it an authentic state of contentment, fulfillment, grace – or merely delusion, self-deception and denial? Wasatch Theatre Company tackles that question in the Utah premiere of playwright Robert Caisley’s Happy. Alfred is happy about his life. He’s happy with his job. He’s happy with his marriage. He’s even happily raising his special needs daughter. However, when his best friend invites him to meet the latest woman in his life, things spin out of control. Join Wasatch and explore the nature of happiness. The show is directed by Jim Martin and features Brian Pilling (Alfred), Alyssa Franks (Eva), George Plautz (Eduardo), and Michelle Lynn Hall (Melinda). Happy opens Thursday, November 6th and runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center (138 West 300 South). There are also 2:00 p.m. Saturday matinees on November 15th and 22nd. Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased at www.arttix.org or by calling 1-801-355-2787. “90 wild and intriguing minutes. Caisley’s script is funny, deliberately unnerving, full of smart dialogue and stinging rejoinders.” – The Miami Herald

Brutus Storms Utah

Published: 11/13/2012

Olivia Dwyer, MountainOnline.com 

Wasatch picks up 50 inches of powder over the weekend; Western resorts open early.

When Snowbird VP of Operations Dave Fields rode his bike to work last Thursday, he noticed the mountain looked a little dry. By Friday, the first flakes fell. When the storm cleared on Sunday, 50 inches of snow buried Snowbird. The resort moved its opening day to Thursday, November 15.

The Weather Channel dubbed the winter storm Brutus (stay tuned for more mythology lessons and winter storm alerts). And in its wake ski areas in Utah and other Western states are rolling out the white carpet early thanks to the bounty of natural snow.

"We could not script it any better," says Fields. "It gives us a foundation to get a lot of terrain open and make pass holders happy, and this kind of snow resonates with people around the country." Yesterday, Snowbird's operations team worked to prepare the mountain: Ski patrollers threw bombs and ski cut avalanche-prone slopes. Snow cats maneuvered through drifts for track packing, where the machines churn up fresh snow and compact it for a stable surface. As opening day inches closer, Snowbird staff rolls out more of the familiar hallmarks of ski season—pads wrapped around lift towers, orange and black rope strung between bamboo poles marking hazards. "We're off to the races," Fields says.
