By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Nov 14,2007 - Addicted Café doesn’t sell sloppy joes on Monday, and all my plans are ruined. I’m supposed to interview local band Kid Theodore, a local quintet known for their shiny, happy pop-tastic sound. Putting these clean-cut lads into a messy...

By Ryan Bradford

Music | Review: Ali thrills; Ghostface Killah, not so much at Harry O’s.

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Nov 9,2007 - Let me start off by saying that I grew up in Park City—lived there pretty much my whole life. Despite the enormous amounts of development that I have seen in my (relatively) short lifespan, it still retains a certain amount of small-town charm that’s...

Music | Pandemonium: Noise rockers Demons project their beautiful noise onstage'and onscreen.

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Nov 7,2007 - When writing about art, it’s good to throw in big words to make you sound smart and sophisticated (this trick also works with scientific stuff). Synesthesia is an example of one of these smart words. It fits nicely in both categories and is also...

Music | Review: Shut down and turned on with Liars and Interpol at In the Venue.

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Oct 17,2007 - I figured the recent Interpol/Liars show would be popular, but it wasn’t until I drove down 200 South and saw a line that snaked around In the Venue that I realized how seriously it would go off. It was nice to see the show moved from Orem to Salt...

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Oct 10,2007 - Cannonball Jane, Knees Up! Both the Beastie Boys’ AdRock and Le Tigre’s Kathleen Hanna are fans of Cannonball Jane, eager to give her props at a moment’s notice. But such adulations are unnecessary, because the music stands on its...

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Oct 3,2007 - MindState, Call the Cops I don’t know if the term “kicking it old school” is outdated and square. (Think about it: “Kicking it old school” is old school). So I hope MindState forgives me for getting so excited about how...
