Lounge Act Wednesday: Meet the Meatmen and more | 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 Wednesday: Meet the Meatmen and more



For all the grief Utah gets for being woefully--and perpetually--behind the times, there's no denying that SLC's punk scene was a vibrant one back in the day, and we get a couple of reminders of that Wednesday.---

Tesco Vee (pictured), founder of the Meatmen and the Touch & Go punk zine, is rolling into town to do a reading at The Heavy Metal Shop from a new anthology called Touch & Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine '79-'83. The book holds every single issue of the zine Vee founded, and should be a great history book for any baby punks out there. And naturally, while Vee is here, the Meatmen are headlining a show at Burt's Tiki Lounge as part of a reunion tour of sorts. The reading at Heavy Metal Shop is at 7 p.m.; the show at Burt's will follow and includes sets by Endless Struggle and Against the Grain.

Wednesday night is also KRCL Night Out at Poplar Street Pub. Starting at 5:30 p.m., drop by for a drink, some grub and some tunes spun by the one and only Circus Brown.

Once you're properly lubed by the drinks and inspired to boogie by the Circus, a little easy skankin' might be in order, and lucky for you, John Brown's Body is headlining a show at The Complex; Natural Roots and Afro Omega are also on the bill.
