Midnight Madness runs all day on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.
Local musicians Peter Breinholt and Sam Payne will keep shoppers at South Towne Center company from midnight to 4 a.m., with Breinholt gigging from midnight to 2 a.m.
Breinholt, a singer-songwriter well-known for his Christmas shows and other Salt Lake valley concerts, said when mall officials called him four years ago with the offer of the gig, he was incredulous. "I told my band, and I said, ‘Are you sitting down?’ " he said. But he ended up having fun and has been back every year. One year, he even flew in from his in-laws’ Thanksgiving celebration in Palm Springs to play the unusually timed mall show. There’s one thing he always make sure, though — he must eat loads of stuffing with heaping scoops of gravy on top at the Thanksgiving meal beforehand. Carb-loading is good for a midnight show — just ask Axl Rose.
