On Friday, July 26, “Taking Woodstock” will open the festivities. The film is directed by Academy Award winning director Ang Lee and stars Dmitri Martin. “Taking Woodstock” shows foibles, family, and frustration behind the scenes as Woodstock unfolds.

Saturday night, “Festival Express” will show. It’s the summer of 1970, and many of Woodstock’s artists and other rock stars board a train where they live, sleep, rehearse, and let loose aboard across Canada. The film is a rock and roll archaeological find!

Tickets are available in advance through paybee.io/@entradainst. The $15 general admission ticket includes that night’s film and the party afterward. Sales are limited to six (6) tickets per person.

Showtime both nights is 7 pm.

Amy Irvine with 3hattrio

Robber's Roost, 70 South 200 West Map

Join author Amy Irvine and 3hattrio for an evening of literature and music.

As Edward Abbey’s Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness turns fifty, its iconic author, who has inspired generations of rebel-rousing advocacy on behalf of the American West, is due for a tribute as well as a talking to. In Desert Cabal: A New Season in the Wilderness, Amy Irvine admires the man who influenced her life and work while challenging all that is dated—offensive, even—between the covers of Abbey’s environmental classic. From Abbey’s quiet notion of solitude to Irvine’s roaring cabal, the desert just got hotter, and its defenders more nuanced and numerous.

Amy Irvine is a sixth-generation Utahn and long-time public lands activist. Her memoir, Trespass: Living at the Edge of the Promised Land, received the Orion Book Award, the Ellen Meloy Desert Writers Award, and the Colorado Book Award. Irvine teaches in the MFA program of Southern New Hampshire University. She lives and writes off the grid in southwest Colorado, just spitting distance from her Utah homeland.

For 3hattrio, the Southwest desert has an almost spiritual significance. Rooted in the natural world of their sacred homeland near Zion National Park in Utah, they say that their genre is “American desert music,” a simple idea for a complex sound. The music 3hattrio are making sounds more like extended landscapes of sound, bare mesas that ring with electronic echoes of acoustic instruments, twisting and turning as the wind shifts. 3hattrio mix the routine with the unusual, fusing American folk music with outsider elements like autotune, psychedelia, and minimalism. It’s a wildly unusual sound, but the product of three very different musicians coming together to form something new.Three hats hang on a rack, an odd assortment: two well used and one newly creased. As individuals, the hats come from different musical worlds but live close to one another, which makes up for a lot. Their songs are original, influenced by a wide swath of musical traditions from Caribbean to the ranges of the American West with subtle grace notes from the depths of jazz, blues and classical styling.
