CWMA Showcase: The State Room

Salt Lake City Weekly is proud to support Utah's thriving music scene with the 2013 City Weekly Music Awards!

10 local showcases will feature our list of the 25 best bands. Come out and show your support for your favorites. You can vote online at Cityweekly.net/cwma and in person and at the showcases. In person votes are more heavily weighted because we want you to come out and hear the music. Come out each night for only $5. Complete list of venues and line-up available at cityweekly.net/cwma.

Saturday, April 27 @ The State Room

9PM Matteo
10PM Mideau
11PM L'Anarchiste

Doors @ 8
RSVP on facebook

This showcase is a mix of the most engaging and innovative folk in Utah. Matteo blends two disparate styles of stringed-based music: bluegrass/folk and traditional Chinese. And the four-piece acquired a new level of mastery of Chinese instruments during a 2012 artists-in-residency period at Sichuan University in China, where they recorded a new EP, The Sichuan Project. L’anarchiste’s songs, like “Gaucho” and “Sleep,” use countermelodies and engaging phrasings that come in and out like waves. Their brand of gorgeous folk (think Sufjan Stevens or Bon Iver) will finally see a professional debut album this summer. This will be one of the first few shows for Mideau (pronounced “mid-oh”), an experimental folk band featuring Spencer Harrison (former Fictionist member) and singer-songwriter Libbie Linton. The duo creates uncompromising tunes with super-engaging songwriting, unconventional instrumentation and lovely vocals.$5
