October is getting stretched out thin with all the national touring acts who decided to buzz through SLC as part of their fall tours. Many of whom don't include local bands as part of their opening act, so a lot of bands have had to push plans or take a backseat to someone else. However, that doesn't mean some haven't squeezed through as we have two release shows over the next week for you. But first, we got a dozen new albums released digitally, so go check out that catalog and then join us below for the concerts.
- New Fast IV
- Bird Heart
- The Price
Creature Double Feature
- Live at Logan Pride 2016
Little Sap Dungeon
- The Devil's Autumn
- Magic Amidst the Dying Leaves
Paint The Echo
- A Couple Burgers For The Cemetery
- Needle Prick Slips Bleary Eye
Black Obelisk of Doom
- The Space Heater Project
The Sense Divide
- Songs For Quitters
We've got two release shows over the next week for you to go to, the first is happening tomorrow night at Muse Music as we see the latest release from Wired For Havoc
. This is a punk rock band based out of Provo comprising Andrew Conner, Chase Gerber, Devin White, Houston Peterson and Sean Michael Gordon. The group has been around for over three years, back in 2013 the released their debut EP called Silver Lining
, and only a handful of singles since. Roll With The Punches
will mark the band's first full-length release which from the few clips to make it online, shows tremendous growth in their sound and style. You can pick up a copy on Oct. 15 at the band performs with Harbor Patrol and Native Tongue opening. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door, and the show starts around 8 p.m.
Finally, on Oct. 20, we'll see the latest from SLC musician John Louviere
. One of the few in SLC doing more pop-oriented versions of indie folk. Louviere has a unique quality to his songwriting and performance that makes him stand out from his other local peers. The last time we chatted about him, he released his 2014 solo album Longest Year
. Two years later after careful writing and finding the right people to work with, he's returned with his sophomore album, The Future Is Now
. You can snag a copy of the album as he performs at The State Room with Andrew Goldring (who recorded and produced his latest effort). Tickets are $15 and the doors open at 7 p.m.
Love music, head out, buy local!
