SALT LAKE CITYYou don’t have to trek all the way up to Park City to hear some of the music of Sundance. 

Visit Salt Lake is bringing some of Sundance Film Festival’s nightlife down the mountain with the Salt Lake Festival Cafe, coming to the Sicilia Pizza Kitchen Jan. 20-28. Starting at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 22, and 8:30 p.m. every other night, the cafe will offer free live music every night from a variety of up-and-coming local and national bands. 

The cafe is one of only two official music venues for this year’s festival, and the only one that doesn’t require a festival pass of some kind to get in. It will run until 10 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, until 11 p.m. on Thursday, and until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. The hours are designed to work around the festival’s Salt Lake screenings, with those attending the 6 p.m. screenings having someplace they can go after and those attending the late screenings having someplace they can go before (if you have tickets for a 9 p.m. screening, you may want to wait until Friday or Saturday). 

The first concert, on Jan. 20, will be by Orphans Cabaret, a dark/steampunk-style cabaret. The Jan. 21 concert will be Juana Ghani, who describe themselves as a “gypsy cirque rock experience.” Smith & Wiley Blues Duo will play both Sunday, Jan. 22, and Monday, Jan. 23, while the acoustic gypsy jazz group Red Rock Hot Club will play Jan. 24. 

The Salt Lake City-based bluegrass group Pixie and the Party Boys will serenade the Sundance crowd on Jan. 25. Katya Murafa, a solo performer who describes her style as “gypsy trip-hop,” will take over the café stage Jan. 26, while the acoustic classic rock group the B.D. Howes Band will perform Jan. 27. 

The last concert of the session, set for Jan. 28, will be the indie folk duo Witherward. Founded in Nashville, Tenn., the group has released 4 CDs. 

The Sicilia Pizza Kitchen is located at 35 W. Broadway (300 South) in Salt Lake. For a map and more information about the restaurant, visit siciliapizza.net/Location.html. All of the groups have either Facebook pages or official sites that can be found by Googling the band’s name.

70TH: GARDNER

January 24, 1947 was an interesting day. Rock singer-songwriter Warren Zevon was born. The NFL added sudden death to its playoff games. Flying saucers were sighted over Mt. St. Helens. Dimitros Maximos became the Prime Minister of Greece. And Max C. Gardner married Velma Goldman in the Salt Lake City Temple. Over the years they lived in Wyoming, California and Utah. And 70 years later they will celebrate their anniversary at their home, with their three children and spouses, Michael C., Patti K. and D. Max, in North Salt Lake, only six miles from where it all began. They ate hamburgers at Don Carlos on their wedding night. This time around, they have decided to splurge with prime rib and lobster. It’s about time. Max practiced mostly oil and gas law for the likes of Shell, Standard Oil, Occidental Petroleum and Getty Oil. He worked on the transactional details of Getty Oil’s funding of a fledgling cable station named ESPN. Velma is a trusted wife, mother and friend. She was a pianist and a painter. They are lifelong members of the LDS Church. They have eight grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. Max, at almost 92, jokingly refers to himself as ‘the last man standing’ with so many friends and colleagues having passed. Velma maintains her sharp sense of humor. They are deeply loved and admired throughout their extended family.
