Saturday, Sept. 5, 3-9 pm: It's the first annual Utahpalooza at The Canyons Mountain Resort in Park City, masterminded by Tony Oros (right). As the frontman for several tribute bands (most infamously as Nigel Thames of Liquid Joe’s mainstays Metal Gods, as well as Rattle & Hum, Mullet Hatchet, et al) across the country, Oros is pals with working musicians far and wide--so he decided to throw a Labor Day weekend party and invite them all to play on one stage for one all-day show in his adopted hometown. It’ll be that rare occasion when "Freebird" requests are encouraged and honored.
On the bill: Metal Gods (metal, of course), Mullet Hatchet (Southern rock), Rattle & Hum (U2 tribute), Trinidaddio (Caribbean music), Skinny Tiez (new wave), Vinyl Williams (local musical whiz-kid, original tunes), School of Rock (young 'uns rockin') and an All-Star Jam featuring players from all of 'em, as well as local comedians and "celebrities" (real or impersonators?).
Come on feel the noise:
