Tommy Wesley Pentz is a music producer taking 2016 by storm, and by the name Diplo. This year he has won two Grammy’s and been nominated for Producer of the Year!
His collaboration with Major Lazer and DJ Snake happens to be the most successful independent music release, and it’s the most played song on Spotify. This song is “Lean On”, featuring MØ. The perfect song for jamming out alone in the car, working out, or blasting at a party. The music video is one of the only videos on YouTube that has reached a billion views. Check it out, and try not to dance out too hard at the office!
Get to the concert early because DJ Sneeky Long is performing first. Check out his awesome music here. He has used his music as therapy in his own life, and couldn’t be more passionate. As a young teen he used fake ID’s to get into clubs and venues so he could experience new music, sometimes he even performed as an opening act. He loves punk, reggae, funk, and hip hop, and uses influences from all these genres in his music. He has played at all types of venues, including Utah’s very own Bar X! We love this quote of his, “At the end of the night, I just want to have contributed to people grooving out and having a good time. As a DJ it’s not about me. It’s about everyone else in the room.”
The Twilight Concert Crew doesn’t want you to go hungry. You’ll definitely need some energy so you can jam out in the audience. One of our favorite food trucks in the 801, is Chow! They serve Hot Asian Cuisine on the Go, and we can tell you that it is divine! We’re totally guilty of stalking their food truck schedule, so we can enjoy it a couple times a week. They use delicious and fresh ingredients and have vegetarian and vegan options as well. They have tacos, fried calamari, salads, sliders, and some delicious Asian spiced root chips. What’s that you ask? Fried potatoes, carrots, and yams with an asian spice. So yummy!
As a carnivore, I love to order coconut lemongrass chicken salad. It’s fresh and full of flavor. We highly recommend their “Chow of the Month” which is a shrimp taco with shrimp pan-seared in garlic-sambal sauce, topped with watermelon habanero salsa, pickled watermelon rinds, with a chili lime aioli drizzled on top. Interested? Drooling? Yeah, we thought you would be.
You can also do some crazy fun craft shopping. Vendors from Craft Lake City will be selling their incredible goods and creations. Tonight expect to see….
