Foo's Unveil HBO Series

It's all coming up Foo at the tail end of 2014. The guys will be dropping their new album, "Sonic Highways" in November, but before that HBO will be airing and 8-part series also called "Sonic Highways."

The album and series focus on the recording of the new music as it was recorded in studios all over the country in some iconic cities such as Washington D.C., New Orleans, Seattle and more made apparent by the album artwork.

Whether the band will unleash a tour in support of the album has not been announced yet, but you can almost guarantee the tour would roll out in cities the album was recorded in, which could mean no show for the SLC. At least not on the first leg. 

Anyway, check out the look at the HBO series below. It looks pretty intriguing.

Video: Neon Tree's Tyler Glenn Gets Personal

Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees sat down on a Channel 2's "Person 2 Person" with Shauna Lake in two parts to talk about Neon Tree's roots, why he doesn't have a driver's licence, coming out in Utah and the new album, "Pop Psychology."

If anything watch to see news anchors say, "Sleeping with a Friend." Then think of all the uncomfortable things you would like to watch news anchors say.

Also, I have no idea why one is big and one is small. I failed programmer's school.

Salt Lake, Ty Burrell Wants To Make Out With You

The proprietor of two of the most popular bars in Salt Lake (Bar X and Beer Bar), actor and star of "Modern Family", Ty Burrell, loves Salt Lake so much that he wrote us a nice little love letter.  As picked up by the Trib via the Huffington Posts "Love Letter" section, Ty wrote about Salt Lake:

"I’m fairly certain that you’re about to explode onto the national scene in the way that some other smaller cities have in the past 10 years," Burrell wrote in the Huffington Post letter. "I will try to keep my jealousies at bay as people move here."

Read the full letter here and swoon away in a bubble bath.

So Salt Lake, don't ever sell yourself short again.  Get some hair product and an expensive shirt from Nordstrom Rack because we have a date with a star.
