As someone who believes strongly in the power of a tightly curated playlist, I must forewarn that this is not that. This jukebox serves as a way to listen to one track from each of City Weekly’s Music Live bands of the week.
This week’s live-music selections are a robust selection of local acts before Utah is swarmed with out-of-towners for Sundance later this month. Check out a big dose of soul (45 Caliber Soul Shots) or a big ol’ jamboree of rock (Sam, Slam and Rock & Roll) or a rap battle (AHAT) or a show on and about a couch (Folk Hogan). OK, there are some pretty solid national bands, and for cheap. Dig in.
The Flying Balalaika Brothers @ Gracie’s
Sam, Slam and Rock & Roll @ Bar Deluxe
Folk Hogan couch show @ Burt’s Tiki Lounge
AHAT “The Perfect Storm #2” Rap Battle @ Uprok Records
