Local Releases: Quietly Programming Primitive Oaks | 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.

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!
