This Week in Shows

Monday (12/3), Team Sleep will be rocking Chino Moreno’s indicized (that’s a new word) version of The Deftones with contributing members from Pinback and Hella. The band will be playing at The Avalon.

Tuesday (12/4), David Bazan of Pedro The Lion fame will be busting out his solo steez at In The Venue tomorrow. Get your introspective religion on with one of the premier singer songwriters of our day.

Tuesday (12/4), Canadian super troupe The Most Serene Republic will be offering up their conglomerate pop effort at Kilby Court. This will be an exciting show in the confines of Kilby. Go see it!

Friday (12/7), Vampire Weekend will be processing their sweet left-field pop at Kilby Court. Something about their music has always reminded me of a Wes Anderson film. Needless to say they should provide a magnificently charming set to an unfortunately stacked night of shows.

Friday (12/7), Iron & Wine will be playing out at The Great Saltair. I am sorely bitter about having to miss this show. Beam plays an entrancing set and it would be exciting to see The Shepherd’s Dog in a live setting. Should be an amazing show.

Friday (12/7), local upstart Navigator will be playing in conjunction with the release of his staggering debut (trust us) along with Ruth Allison and Adam Lipman(!) at Slowtrain. The show will be free in along with a Potter Press screenprinting party scheduled that night. Forest Gospel pick of the week.

Saturday (12/8), Mt.Eerie may have had to cancel his touring plans but Watery Graves are still planning on showing Salt Lake City what they have to offer at a house show with Rob Walmart, Grizzly Prospector and Navigator (2nd night in a row). Not only a terrific lineup but an intimate setting as this is a house show. Music starts at 8pm at 2496 E. 6200 S. in Holladay.
