The State Room celebrates its first birthday with John Hiatt

- Posted // 2010-04-01 -

Hard to believe, but The State Room turns a year old today. And they're celebrating with a familiar face who will be playing the club for the first time.

Quite a first year it's been, too, with co-owners Chris Mautz and Darin Piccoli bringing a steady diet of shows to the former children's theater across the street from The Bayou, eventually landing a hallowed liquor license, too. They are celebrating the birthday with today's announcement that they've booked John Hiatt for an intimate gig slated for August 16. Tickets are $50 for the show and go on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m. at The State Room's Web site.

Hiatt is a regular visitor to Utah, and particularly Red Butte Garden. This time, he's going small, stopping at the 300-seat venue with his latest band, The Combo, on his tour supporting his new album The Open Road. You can expect a heavy dose of that, along with familiar faves like "Memphis in the Meantime," "Drive South" and "Cry Love."

Just saw that Josh Ritter is coming to the State Room, which makes me very happy.
