Saturday night offers a terrific chance to hear for yourself two of Utah's finest bands when Fictionist and The Devil Whale team up for a State Room gig.
I'm looking forward to Sunday's night State Room concert, when Santa Cruz, Calif.,'s The Devil Makes Three and Brown Bird. The Devil Makes are a rootsy sounding band with an over-the-top punk spirit that makes for a danceable good time. See what I mean right below. They're touring behind their new release, "
Scott H. Biram, a one-man bluesy act with tons of fervent followers, hits The Urban Lounge with his down-home take on roots music. Tickets are just $12 and remain on sale. Get a blast of Biram right here:
Don't forget the Salt Lake Acting Company's ongoing production of "(A Man Enters)." There are many chances to go see this play, which is receiving rave reviews.
And for fans of terrific indie rock, don't miss the Mates of States, pictured above, on Saturday night. They're playing their buddy Will Sartain's venue at the Urban Lounge and promise to be a real treat. (Sartain's opened for them in Europe on a previous tour.) They're not the most relentless tourers out there, so don't miss this opportunity to catch their live show. Generationals are the openers for the 10 p.m. concert.
