Earth Day at the aquarium

Monday is Earth Day, the annual event started in 1970 to show support for protecting the environment. Loveland Living Planet Aquarium, at 12033 S. Lone Peak Parkway in Draper, is marking the occasion with an “Earth Day Party for the Planet.” The family-friendly event will feature nature-themed storytimes, animal encounters, garden tours, a pollinator dance party, ladybug release, crafts, games, prizes and performances by the Trash Panda Drum Group. The party will go all day, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For tickets, go to livingplanetaquarium.org.

A rockin’ birthday

Maynard James Keenan, the singular rock musician best known as leader of the band Tool, turned 60 on April 17. He’s celebrating that birthday by touring with two of his bands, Puscifer and A Perfect Circle, sharing the stage with another outstanding alt-rock band, Primus. The tour, called “Sessanta,” will feature all three bands on stage at the same time. The tour comes through Utah this week, with a show Tuesday, starting at 7:30 p.m., at Maverik Center, 3200 S. Decker Lake Drive, West Valley City. Tickets are available at MaverikCenter.com.

Jo Koy’s ‘World Tour’

Stand-up comedian Jo Koy did not have a great start to 2024, bombing hard when he hosted the Golden Globe Awards in January. That might be one of the things Koy talks about when he brings his “World Tour” to Delta Center, 301 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City, Saturday, starting at 8 p.m. It’s his last stop before heading to Europe for a series of dates. Tickets are available at DeltaCenter.com.
