Satisfy your fiddle fetish with new-school old-time players The Belleville Outfit. Based out of Austin and featuring members from various Southern pockets, the sextet’s eclectic sound is smooth as sweet tea and lively as an added dollop of whiskey.--- The Americana group’s Time to Stand (dedicated to slain journalist and musician Daniel Pearl) combines hints of bluegrass, country, gypsy swing and bluegrass with sparkling male/female harmonies to propel an album composed largely of original material (and funded by listeners who chose to “adopt a song” in exchange for credit in the liner notes). Plus, tonight's concert organizers have invited Terri Mumm to serve as guest bartender. She what kind of mad skills she has to offer! The State Room, 638 S. State, 8 p.m. Tickets: TheStateRoomSLC.com
Royal Bangs will also roll into town town, tonight. The group released Let It Beep today on Audio Eagle, the label Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney started in his free time. Their recordings are incredibly catchy and highly percussive - a combination that makes for memorable live shows. Burt's Tiki Lounge, 726 S. State, 9 p.m.
Or, head over to Kilby Court for Cotton Jones (featuring members of Page France), Oh My God! and Utah's Paul Jacobsen and the Madison Arm who, we hear, is cooking up a new batch of material. Can't wait for a possible EP!
