Shows This Week

Shows This Week!

Tuesday (9/25), The New Pornographers will be spreading their new filth classily at The Depot along with Lavender Diamond and The Awkward Stage.

Wednesday (9/26), Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem will be inflating ticket prices and teaching a lesson on what a marketing monster indie rock is becoming as they infiltrate Thanksgiving Point in Lehi. I hope they have big TV screens so everyone can make out their faces.

Friday (9/28), Black Mountain will set Kilby Court ablaze with their sleazy awesomeness along with The Cave Singers who share members with the now defunct Pretty Girls Make Graves. Live pick for the week!

Friday (9/28), in further overpriced yet potentially entertaining rock, Smashing Pumpkins and The Bravery will be appeasing musical taste that didn’t advance post jr. high…buts what’s wrong with that?

Saturday (9/29), Redman at Harry O’s in Park City – word.

I'll be hitting 3 of the 4. Black Mountain is the only one I'm on the fence about, though I really shouldn't be, should I? I like all I've heard and am pretty curious about the Cave Singers. What else can you tell me about 'em?

I don’t know if there is anything I can do to convince you if you are already familiar with the band. Black Mountain is just the quintessential rock band for me; wrangling Lynyrd Skynyrd, CCR and the Rolling Stones and the upping the volume. Kilby is definitely the most intimate venue on this list and to have a large, energetic band like Black Mountain play there is just unmissable. I don’t know if this youtube can do them any justice…

I saw the Pumpkins at Saltair, what 7 years ago, when D'arcy wasn't playing bass anymore.

Crappy mix, crappy speaker system. I was disappointed.
