Xiu Xiu | Kilby Court | Live Music | Salt Lake City Weekly


This is a past event.
When: Thu., Aug. 7, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $10
There's an episode of Parks & Recreation where the parks department is brainstorming ideas for a new mural, and April comes up with a freaky project involving a guy running in a hamster wheel while screaming and eating raw beef; rats made out of garbage; and looped video of knee surgeries. I imagine that Angel Guts: Red Classroom, the latest album from experimental avant-garde group Xiu Xiu (pronounced "shoo shoo"), would be a fitting soundtrack for something so horrifying. Mostly made with ominous beeps, bloops, zips and zaps, Angel Guts—named after a violent Japanese porno, because art—is shocking and unnerving, especially with frontman Jamie Stewart whispering like a creep. On Xiu Xiu's website, though, the band promised to play some older tunes on this tour, too, so at least you can probably look forward to a rendition of "I Luv the Valley OH!" Circuit des Yeux and Jawwzz will also perform. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
