Dean Risko returns to his hometown with a special show Saturday featuring guests Dumb Luck, Young Sim & Definit, Kiliona, Quince Jone, Jaya Raise and others. Risko, 23, emigrated from South Africa to Salt Lake City when his brother moved to Utah to play volleyball at Brigham Young University. "Everyone outside of America is fascinated with America," Risko said in a phone interview. It wasn’t until moving to Utah that Risko discovered hip-hop — and Eminem. As he studied at Viewmont High School, he began writing songs and learning how to break dance. He moved to Los Angeles to pursue a music career, and after two years there he has begun working on a full-length album where he sings as much as he raps. This show will feature some of his friends from Los Angeles, as well as some of his Utah friends.
When • Saturday at 9 p.m.
