Fresh, homegrown music from Backhand, a Provo punk band headed to Kilby Court and Treefort Music Fest in Idaho next month. Treefort says: "Backhand is bringing the piping hot punk rock from Salt Lake City that you have been searching for. Jake Owens on guitar, Mitch Owens on bass, Matt Timmons on drums, and Ben Owens on vocals, are knocking on your door and tossing pebbles at your window, with the kind of music that can make a tiger purr and a gladiator weep. UTAH'S TOUGHEST TEAM. GOD'S FAVORITE BAND. BACKHAND."

SkyWatcher Leo T and his Many Cultures One Sky report. Tonight, check out the incredible evening sky as Venus and Jupiter come ever closer to conjunction on March 1st. Folklore meets science with the Inca's skyview in the Andes. An asteroid streaks across Europe. For more space news and sources, follow the SkyWatcher Leo T Facebook.
