Lounge Act Monday: Pick your musical poison | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Lounge Act Monday: Pick your musical poison



What kind of music fan are you? I'm betting there's something to get you out of the house tonight.---

Usana Amphitheater has a "Halloween Hootenanny" double-bill featuring recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee Alice Cooper and his gore-obsessed god son Rob Zombie. This will be the loudest, silliest and bloodiest show of the night, and that's why I'm going. Check back Tuesday for a review of the gig.

Local rhyme animal Mark Dago of The Numbs continues the week-long celebration of his SelfHighFive CD release with a show at Velour in Provo. If you're in Utah County Monday night, this is the place to be.

The mighty Melvins headline a show at In the Venue that will take you back to the late-'80s, when ugly dudes playing abrasive music had yet to take over the cover of GQ.

The young, cool crowd has a decision to make. At The Woodshed, you can hear punky popster Ty Segall doing his thing, but at the same time, El Ten Eleven, DOSH and Baths are playing at The Urban Lounge. I'd go with Segall, but that's just me.

Music Snobs
The legendary guitar man Richard Thompson is headlining a sold-out show at The State Room. You might be able to snag tix from the Internet or on the street outside the venue, but I wouldn't bet on it. A guy like Thompson doesn't drop into SLC every day.
