Artist David Brothers talked about the inspiration behind his latest exhibition, Rolithica, which opened today at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. Meet the artist next Friday, February 5, at 7 p.m. during a reception at UMOCA, 20 South West Temple, SLC:


They closed out the show with live music from Ogden, Utah's own Sammy Brue. Rolling Stone called him one of the 20 Best Things at Americana Fest 2014 — when he was just 13. Just last year, Rolling Stone Country said: "He's a student of East Nashville, not Greenwich Village, budding from this new folk resurgence in fascinating ways." Listen and judge for yourself:

Thanks to Mike Thornbrue, Sammy's father, for helping to make tonight's show possible. You can see Sammy Brue live at The Heavy Metal Shop, 63 Exchange Place, SLC, Saturday, February 6, 2016, with Morgan Snow. The free show will start at 6 p.m., all ages welcome.
