I learned two valuable lessons in my adventure to Provo's Velour on Friday night. The first, with Velour shows, the opening acts are often just as impressive as the headliner ... So, be there at 8, when doors open. The second: You can't just park wherever the fuck you want in Provo, even if it is a deserted bank well after business hours.
