There are about a million good shows this week, so take heed:
Tonight (10/22), stream-of-consciousness wordsmith Aesop Rock will be headlining a hip hop must with FG praised Black Moth Super Rainbow on their second show in SLC within the last few months; a highly recommended show featuring additional sets by Blockhead and DJ Signify at In the Venue.
Wednesday (10/24), Urban Lounge will host our live pick of the week with Caribou sporting dual drummers and support from Born Ruffians. Go see this show!!
Friday (10/26), In the Venue will be dropping the bass lines again for indie hip hop superheroes Busdriver, Daedelus and Antimc. I am really excited for this show.
Saturday (10/27), Kilby Court will be hosting Menomena(!) in an effort to steal away the crowning night of the weekend; however, they have competition…
Saturday (10/27), Architecture in Helsinki plan to battle their trendily exclamated competitors with a twee-gone-B-52s assault that will hopefully rely on old material. Regardless, being acquainted with AiH live, this will most probably a booty shaking smackdown.
Saturday (10/27), oh, what this? That’s right: forget any plans you may have had for either Architecture or Menomena! because Vanilla Ice (you read that right: V-a-n-i-l-l-a I-c-e) is ready to rock the mic like a vandal at the now ironically named bar and grill, Teazers. This show is going to be so incredible I am going to have to steal away my live-pick-of-the-week title from Caribou and slap it right here! So excited!
