Who is Rupi Kaur?
You don’t often hear about poets going on a world tour, playing large concert halls. Rupi Kaur is a 29-year-old poet — born in Punjab, India, and now living in Canada — who became a sensation with her appearances on Instagram. Notably, she posted images of clothing and bedsheets stained with her menstrual blood in 2015, and when Instagram took down the images, she posted a critique of the company that went viral. Kaur will read her works Monday, starting at 8 p.m., in the Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, Salt Lake City. Limited tickets available at ArtTix.org.
‘You can check out any time you like…’
It seems like, no matter what, The Eagles continue to make music. Through stormy arguments, firings, lawsuits, and the death of founding member Glenn Frey, the band that recorded “Hotel California,” “Take It Easy,” “Desperado” and other hits has been going for more than 50 years. The Eagles are scheduled to perform the entirety of their “Hotel California,” plus their greatest hits, Wednesday, at 8 p.m., at Vivint Smart Home Arena, 301 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City. Tickets available at vivintarena.com.
Real Salt Lake, back home
Real Salt Lake has been quite successful in their home grounds, Rio Tinto Stadium — aka The RioT, aka The Fortress — racking up four wins, one draw and no losses in MLS league play. (We’re not talking about that U.S. Open Cup loss to third-tier Northern Colorado Hailstorm.) RSL is back home Saturday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m., to play the Houston Dynamo.
