!!! (Chk Chk Chk). What more need I say?

Live Music Picks: June 22-28

Coin, Grits Green, Vans Warped Tour, Visigoth and more.
Nashville indie pop band Coin sounds squeaky clean and produced.

Live Music Picks: June 15-24

Black Lips, Ron S., Utah Blues Festival and more.
What happens when the bad kids in school—the spitball-throwing, rubber band-flipping, smokin'-in-the-boys'-room guys—start a band?

Live Music Picks: June 8-14

Street Fever, Morbid Angel, The Kingston Trio, and more.
With their penchant for slathering video models in slick black oil and a thrumming, portentous sound that one would expect to hear in a Nicolas Winding Refn film, Street Fever is a haunting homage to the golden age of brooding post-punk and synthwave music—with an industrial influence.

Live Music Picks: June 1-7

Ogden Music Festival, Dead & Company, The Slow Poisoner and more.
For four years, Ogden Friends of Acoustic Music (OFoAM) put on two of the most anticipated local music festivals.

Live Music Picks: May 25-31

Ballyhoo!, Dave Bowen Quartet, Cool Ghouls and more.
Utah winters are known for their annoying tendency to overstay their welcome.

Live Music Picks: May 18-24

Mono, Hot Tuna, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas and more.
Tokyo foursome Mono is difficult to pin down.

Live Music Picks: May 11-17

Sweet Spirit, Eagle Twin, Flogging Molly and more.
Austin-based nine-piece Sweet Spirit's new album Mojo (Nine Mile) is charmingly disjointed, yet strangely cohesive.

Live Music Picks: May 4-10

Brother Ali, Prong, Kiefer Sutherland and more.
Much more than just "the albino rapper," Brother Ali is bringing The Own Light Tour to Salt Lake City.

Live Music Picks: April 27-May 3

Jon Gudmunson, The Bad Signs, Chance the Rapper and more.
Baritone saxophonist Jon Gudmunson, director of jazz studies at Utah State University, leads a quartet of his fellow faculty members.

Live Music Picks: April 20-26

Beats Antique, Tango West, Snoop Dogg and more.
Credit Beats Antique with applying a certain truth in advertising. The beat quotient is a constant and, as for the antique reference, they affirm a certain reverence for the roots.

Live Music Picks: April 13-19

Real Estate, DJ Quik, Brant Bjork, Nellie McKay and more.
This is not Sunny Day Real Estate but, in their own way, this New Jersey band is as tuneful as that '90s not-Nirvana outfit.

Live Music Picks: April 6-12

Liquid's Latin Rock Fest, Zeke, Conquer Monster, Neil Diamond and more
Exciting things are happening in the local rock en Español scene, including these (usually) monthly showcases of Mexican bands like Cenizas Ajenas, La Calavera, Leyenda Oculta, Musor and De Despedida.

Live Music Picks: March 30-April 5

Modern English, Primitive Programme, Regina Spektor, STS9 and more
Music history quiz: What popular British new wave/post-punk band began life as The Lepers? Modern English! (Did the header give it away?) But did you know that, as The Lepers, the English band's sound had more in common with post-punk gloom merchants Joy Division than the sunny synth-pop heard on Modern English's 1982 hit "I Melt With You," which made them a flagship band of the '80s, a time when the Union Jack again ruled the musical world.

Live Music Picks: March 23-29

The Infamous Stringdusters, Ghost of Paul Revere, Mighty Mystic, Red Sage and more
Founded in Charlottesville, Va., in 2006, the Infamous Stringdusters navigate the path between traditional bluegrass and a modern jam-band aesthetic. The quintet builds its music on a foundation of old-time folk and bluegrass, and its arrangements allow for plenty of jamming in a live setting.
