Tonight! (5/12), the almighty Subtle will grace Salt Lake City once again to thoroughly remind us that Dose One, Jel and Co. are finest purveyors of everything pop, indie rock, hip hop and electronic. On the eve of the release of their third full length, ExitingARM (which is absolutely fantastic), the group is hitting up The Urban Lounge with high profile locals The Future of the Ghost and Palace of Buddies. One of the best live shows you will ever see and Forest Gospel's live pick of the week (which should be a quite notable considering the amazing shows going down later this week)!
Subtle - "The Long Vein of the Law"
Thursday (5/15), Dead Meadow are bringing their complete amp destroying, ear contorting psych fury to Kilby Court along sides touring partners The Furs. You'll probably want to remember ear plugs for this super heavy sludge fest. A must for Comets on Fire fans!
Dead Meadow - "What Needs Must Be"
Friday (5/16), Tapes 'n Tapes and Austin hype mongerers, White Denim, are bringing the rock back to indie rock for their show at In the Venue. Should be blissful. (PS this show will be happening the same time as Atmosphere's emo rap set in the same venue)
Tapes 'n Tapes - "Insistor"
White Denim live
Friday (5/16), New Pornographer/Swan Lake compatriot Dan Bejar will be rolling out his long time solo act Destroyer at The Urban Lounge with Devon Williams. The show should be plenty late so that you can catch White Denim and T & T or gallery stroll before heading on over. Don't miss the lyricism and hair!
Saturday (5/17), Powerman 5000 are playing at The Grail. I couldn't resist the mention.
