Issue 289 - January 2013

Narco Cultura

“Out of poverty, poetry; out of suffering, song.” This old Mexican saying has proven its merit throughout history. World-renowned photojournalist and filmmaker Shaul Schwarz came across this cultural connection in one of the most controversial yet underground conflicts currently marring our continent: the drug war. Schwarz makes his Sundance debut this January with Narco Cultura, a unique and engrossing film documenting the plague of cartel violence and the subculture that has sprouted from the bloodbath, making its way onto U.S. stages and airwaves.

Localized

Embarrassment might hold you back from admitting you were scared to make plans beyond Dec. 21, but if you’re reading this, the new year came and you survived the world’s end. Come celebrate your survival with the thrash-punk-metal noise of Screaming Condors and Simian Greed at Urban Lounge on Jan. 12. Cancer Culture open at 10 p.m.—your 21-plus ID and $5 get you in.

Team Prospect

Team Prospect is Smith Optics’ and Spacecraft Collective’s Intermountain, regional grassroots, ski and snowboard team. Being a part of this experience offers local athletes the opportunity to fast-track advancement through their five-tier sponsorship program. What sets Team Prospect apart from other flow sponsorships is the organization from top to bottom. The riders are backed by seasoned leaders and a company dedicated to life-long relationships, offering rider input and a larger-than-most advertising/marketing budget for its riders, regardless of their status.

David Ross Fetzer 12.17.82 – 1

The first time I met David Fetzer, we bumped heads. Literally. I rounded a corner in the Tower Theatre too quickly and ran into David head first. After two minutes of apologies, he introduced me to the event’s co-creator for an interview, we exchanged numbers, and then he took off to go act in a play. Since that time, I’ve had the honorary pleasure of being able to call David a good friend ... and a great co-conspirator for creativity.

Provo’s Food Scene

Up until recently, I never really considered Provo a place that cultivated any authentic type of food culture. It’s full of various chain restaurants, fast food joints and a few dives that offer a bit of local charm, but Provo’s food scene was almost nonexistent. That was until I attended Local First’s Celebrate the Bounty event, where three Provo sparkplugs brought their A-game: The farm-to-table virtuosos of Communal Restaurant, the Southwestern Native American pioneers of Black Sheep Cafe, and the regional comfort food experts of Station 22.

Baby Ghosts

Part Provo and part Salt Lake, the aggro-adorable music of Baby Ghosts exists in a nebulous world where pop-punk, cuddlecore, anime, garage rock and 8-bit video games coalesce into a perfect party soundtrack. The co-ed four piece utilizes three of its members as vocalists—singing, screaming and harmonizing playful yet thoughtful lyrics over bouncy melodies that give way to some certifiably shredding guitar work. The band has a wide appeal, equally embraced by the more indie rock-oriented crowds of Velour as well as the blossoming Provo hardcore scene.
