The first show happens tonight as we see the latest from Quiet Oaks. But I won't need to write much on this one, as City Weekly's Randy Hayward chatted with the band in this week's issue. Go read that article, then go pick up a copy of Pretty Alright at Urban Lounge as the band plays their album release show with Andrew Goldring and Strange Familia.  Tickets are $5 and the doors open at 8 p.m.


Tomorrow night, we'll get the latest from Primitive Programme, a three-piece new wave/synth punk band from SLC comprised of Dennis Fuller, Ian Francis and Joshua Price. The band originally started out as Josh & Ian, and had a nice debut album back in early 2016, but changed names and a little bit of their sound when they picked up a third member. Their debut EP, Modern World, sounds  awesome from the early copy we got, well worth your time to seek it out. Grab a copy tonight as the band plays at Diabolical Records, with Sculpture Club (this will be their tour send-off show) and Choir Boy opening. There is a suggested $5 donation at the door, and music will start around 8 p.m.


Love music, head out, buy local!
