Strange Familia new single premiere: "Don't Talk About This"

Summer’s almost over, but local duo Strange Familia keep the party going with new single “Don’t Talk About This,” premiering exclusively here at City Weekly before Brecken Jones and Garret Williams perform at The Urban Lounge on Saturday, Sept. 15. A shimmery, danceable jam built on an unabashed pop beat, jungly drums, chopped and diced vocals and funky electric guitars, “Don’t Talk About This” covers extensive ground in its 2:34 run time.

Music Monday 7/23: Drake & Migos and more

Whether you like your hip-hop ice-cold and Canadian or dipped in Dirty South hot sauce, this Thursday’s Drake + Migos show at Vivint Smart Home Arena will satisfy. Billed as the Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour (Aubrey is Drake’s real name, and The Three Migos refers to, well, the three members of Migos), the 57-leg North American jaunt actually kicks off here in Salt Lake City, leading us to the sneaking suspicion that Atlanta’s Takeoff, Quavo and Offset really like it here in The Beehive State.

Music Monday 7/2: Boytoy, Echo Beds, Freedom Festival and more for your holiday week

Last February, I swooned when Oklahoma psychedelic surf rock band Planet What came through town, sending a few sonic booms out from Diabolical Records’ cozy confines. This week, the trend continues when Brooklyn’s Boytoy headline a Tuesday, July 3 show at Diabolical, bringing salty licks from their latest album, Night Leaf, to the Wasatch Front.

Music Monday: Law Rocks, The Rodeo Boys Redux, Bandemonium and Magda-Vega

THURSDAY 12/7 Law Rocks Being an attorney is stressful and time-consuming, so they need to blow off steam—a band, if they can squeeze such a thing into their lives, is a great way to do that. Law Rocks (www.lawrocks.org) is a band of lawyers that jams under the banner, “Rock Globally, Give Locally.” The idea is to give themselves a creative outlet while also raising money for non-profits that endeavor to do the same.

Music Monday: Road trip to Punk in Drublic

Idaho has stupid alcohol laws, too
It's 5:41 a.m. in Nampa, Idaho. My head hurts—not as much as it could, considering it's the morning after the "Boise" iteration of Punk in Drublic, the traveling craft beer and punk rock festival conceived by NOFX singer-bassist Fat Mike.
