The Wild War, Beachmen, Red Telephone, Grand Banks

When: Fri., Dec. 12, 7:30 p.m. 2014

As another one-year landmark, Kevin Edwards (guitar, bass, vocals) and Dan Johnson (drums) of Salt Lake City psych-rock/folk duo The Wild War are celebrating their first anniversary as a band at tonight's show, at the same venue where they played their first show. According to the band's Facebook page, The Wild War started "when two best friends decided to make some music," and they've been hard at work since then. Aside from playing plenty of local shows, The Wild War released its solid debut EP, Valley Rain, in February. The album is a fascinating mix of mellow dreaminess and ear-grating psych-rock, especially on highlight track "Love, Don't Say Goodnight." Hopefully, The Wild War have more projects in the works for the coming year—this show would be a good place to find out. Also on the bill are local acts Beachmen, Red Telephone and Grand Banks.
