Thursday 11.13
n TATE LAW BENEFIT
nIn early October, a serious car accident hospitalized Tate Law, a local, widely beloved musician responsible for indie projects The Lionelle and Spooky Moon. Fortunately for him, when tragedy strikes around these parts the community is swift to respond with selfless displays of emotional and financial support. Salt Lake City record label Sound vs. Silence has organized a showcase to raise funds for Law to help with his living expenses while he’s unable to work. Featured artists include The Hotness (for whom Law played bass), The Blackhounds, All Time Ending and, according to SVSS’s Tyler Lusk, other altruistic bands to be confirmed at a later date. If you can’t make it to the show, donate online at SoundVsSilence.BigCartel.com. Kilby Court, 741 S. 330 West, 7 p.m. All-ages.

Friday 11.14
n AN HORSE, BISHOP ALLEN
nNever mind the name, An Horse is a band even English-language police can get behind. Have a soft spot for no-fuss indie rock? Appreciate a well-placed female pop vocal? Then forgive the Australian duo for employing “an” when “a” might earn them an A in grammar 101. Besides, Cate Cooper and Damon Cox probably pronounce “horse” as “’orse,” and at the end of the day the two are quite solid songwriters. They’re able to express a lot with very little, employing simple phrases to relay universal emotions. It’s not rocket science, or AP English. But with Cooper delivering the words with her beautiful, slightly slurry voice, it doesn’t much matter what she’s saying. Kilby Court, 741 S. 330 West, 7:30 p.m. All-ages. Tickets: 24Tix.com

Monday 11.17
n THE EDITOR’S NOTES
nJoel Jensen’s eponymous debut as The Editor’s Notes features Band of Annuals’ bassist, guitarist, pedal-steel player & singer/guitarist backing the local solo artist, but save for the occasional aching sigh of Brent Dreiling’s sad steel machine, The Editor’s Notes is very much a Jensen creation. The album (produced, engineered and mastered by BOA’s Jay Henderson), is a somber work of sensitive songwriting powered by Jensen’s heart-on-sleeve narratives delivered in a voice that at times brings to mind Sufjan Stevens—particularly on “You Wrote As Your Closing Line,” and “University Wear.” Listen to live cuts tonight at The Editor’s Notes’ official release. Nobrow Coffee & Tea, 315 E. 300 South, 7 p.m. All-ages.

n“I’m a motherfucking headline, but, bitch, you don’t even know it,” sings Of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes on “Wicked Wisdom,” his dramatic falsetto reinforcing the inevitable Prince comparisons he often attracts. Oh Barnes, you sexy mother. The spectacularly over-the-top front man ostensibly invests as much energy into crafting his persona as he does into his music with Of Montreal, a band whose latest album, Skeletal Lamping, combines electro-pop, psychedelic entrails, bits of twisted disco, bizarre indie-rock and dance-floor funk into compositions that make the body rock; the head swirl. Welcome to the carnival. Enjoy the ride—and don’t take it too seriously. Of Montreal obviously has a sense of humor as evidenced by their recent gig with Limozeen, the extreme metal band straight out of Homestar Runner. I know, right?! Murray Theater, 4916 S. State, 7:30 p.m. All-ages. Tickets: SmithsTix.com

n

Also Monday: Grampall Jookabox (Kilby Court); Pierce the Veil, Breathe Carolina (Studio 600); Gwar (Great Saltair)

Tuesday 11.18
n OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW
nMusic snobs tend to roll their eyes at Old Crow Medicine Show. “That band? They totally ripped off Bob Dylan!” Well, that’s not exactly true. The Tennessee-based Americana/country group/one-time-buskers caught the public’s ear with “Wagon Wheel,” a song whose catchy chorus relies on outtakes from Dylan’s Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid sessions. But the bulk of the single’s structure features accomplished, original songwriting by musicians who paid their dues on street corners and accumulated sufficient experience to pen authentic, porch-pounding southern anthems. Listening to their sophomore LP, Tennessee Pusher, Old Crow sound every bit the real deal—and the chorus to “Caroline” is just as sweet and low as “heeyyy, mama rock me.” The Depot, 400 W. South Temple, 7 p.m. Tickets: DepotSLC.com

Also Tuesday: Metro Station (In the Venue); Vic Chesnutt, Elf Power (Kilby Court); Fishbone (Bar Deluxe); Darker My Love (Urban Lounge)
