John Butler Trio

You might know the John Butler Trio from one of the Australia group’s past visits, and you do, you were most likely transfixed by the group’s insistent rhythms and leader Butler’s dreads as he plucked at his guitar. In 2011, get ready to meet a whole new John Butler Trio. Not literally, although two-thirds of the trio are brand-new to the group: drummer Nicky Bomba and bassist Byron Luiters. And Butler’s trademark hairstyle has been shorn short. Most significantly, the John Butler Trio approached its latest release, April Uprising, looking to craft simple, stellar songs that are not mere launching pads for extended live jams. They’ve largely succeeded, although I’m guessing there will still be plenty of dance-worthy instrumental excursions at their Salt Lake City show. Kingsbury Hall, 1395 E. President’s Circle, 7:30 p.m., $25. BUY TICKETS HERE.
