- Abstract Thought Pt. 1
- The What If
Reaper The Storyteller
- The Exit Plan
- Offer Your Throat
- Up All Night
- I Tried So Hard
- Choose Your Side
First on the list, we have a two-night event from Fictionist
! The popular Provo-based group has had one of the more interesting careers in the local music community, at one point having a possible record deal from a contest, then taking their music in a wildly new direction as a four-man group and becoming one of the best indie rock bands in Utah. Their latest album is Sleep Machine
, which they'll be releasing tonight and tomorrow at Velour. Tonight they perform with Strange Familia and Grove, while on Saturday they perform with Spirit City and Conquer Monster. Both shows are $10 and the doors open at 8 p.m.
The other show happening tonight takes place at the Beehive Social Club, as we see the latest from The Ditch & The Delta
. The trio of Kory Quist, Elliot Secrist and Charles Bogus has established itself as an awesome doom-metal group with a great EP called We Rust
under their belts from 2015. The band was recently signed to Battle Ground Records, and making their official full-length debut with this new album on the label. You can snag that album, Hives In Decline
, as they perform with Die Off and Despite Dispair. Tickets are just $5 and the doors open at 7 p.m.
On Saturday, along with the Fictionist show, we have two more concerts you can check out. For the first, we'll see the debut album from Ginger & The Gents
. The four-piece dirty rock/heavy blues band from SLC comprises of Chandra Marie, Jesse Kyle Long, Sam Sumpter, and Steven Butler. The group has been
around for about a year and a half, and finally ready to release their debut self-titled album. You can snag a copy on Saturday at the Ice Haüs as they perform with American Hitmen and Ghost of a Giant. Tickets are $8 and doors open at 8 p.m.
Finally, we have the latest album from Ivy Local
, a pair of emcees who have been performing around SLC for the past couple years and earned a fine reputation. The duo will be releasing their latest album, which appears to be simply titled Orange
, tomorrow night with Primitive Programme, DJ Serge du Preea
opening. Tickets are $5 and the show starts around 9 p.m.
Love music, head out, buy local!
