SLC Music News May 4: The Underground Rolls On | 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, 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.

SLC Music News May 4: The Underground Rolls On


The Underground is a local venue that hosts … yeah, you guessed it, SLC’s most underground artists.  The venues have rotated locales over the years, garnering names like The Underground I and II and perhaps III, unless that one is on the way with a new change on the horizon. In the meantime, while we wait for real live shows to begin once more, The Underground lives on online via their Instagram. Following them means constantly getting notifications that they’re going “live” on Instagram, as the past weeks have found them hosting a series of live stream sets from both local artists and artists from their network of DIY musicians across the Western region and the country. The beginning of this month found an acoustic set by Portland-based Glacier Veins and Eugene-based Matt Kupka of Southtown Lanes on May 1, followed by SLC local Choice Coin on May 2 alongside Denver-based act Obtuse. Upcoming throughout this week are even more good sets to see. Today (May 4), Hannah Williams hits the live stream at 4 p.m., and after a few days off, the music returns on Thursday, May 7 at 4 p.m. with Tag Along Friend from Boise, SLC’s Dogor on Friday at 2 p.m., and Mattstagraham from Tucson at 4 p.m. On Saturday, May 9, look for Oakland’s Billy Bouzos at 2 p.m. and SLC’s PK Opal at 4 p.m. Follow The Underground on Instagram (@theundergroundslc) to watch, to keep up with future live stream shows and to view videos from past sets.
