Atmospheric. Electronic. Powerful. Fun. And who doesn't enjoy a little powerfully atmospheric, electronic fun? Animal Collective's latest album, Merriweather Post Pavilion, certainly provides. Continue Reading

The Crash Engine

Posted on 26 August 2009 by Gentry

For goodness sake, where did they come from?  Great show.  I have had The Crash Engine’s CD playing in my car now for a week.  I’m not sure when I’ll take it out.  It’s very well produced.  The album is not anything like their live show BUT the live show was why I bought the […] Continue Reading

Sigur Ros live in SLC with the Parachutes

Posted on 26 August 2009 by Gentry

Honestly, I would have paid just as much to go see the Parachutes play on their own after seeing them open for Sigur Ros.  They were amazing in their own rite.  However, Sigur Ros was more than amazing.  They were moving.  It was like being in slow motion watching events move around you and then […] Continue Reading

Ian McFeron Band

Posted on 26 August 2009 by Gentry

I’ve worn out the first CD I bought from these guys…and gal. Every song has a story to tell and I never get tired of hearing it.  Plus they’re from Seattle (oh how I miss Seattle).  If you’ve had the chance to see them play and let it pass you by I’d be willing to […] Continue Reading

San Diego’s FM 94.9 presented the Miller Lite Independence Jam 2008 on Sunday, June 8 at Southwestern College.  I went, I saw, I danced, and I got rocked. Oh, and sun burnt. Everyone in San Diego had been aflutter about this annually held event for weeks before the festival, and why wouldn’t they with a […] Continue Reading

Mark Mallman

Posted on 26 August 2009 by Gentry

The man is an entertainer that’s for sure. I didn’t have any idea, beyond good music, what I was in for. I saw him at Kilby Court in SLC. I’m pretty sure he never actually played the keyboard normally. He stood on it. He stood above it. He stood in front of it. He even […] Continue Reading

What a show. The Big Easy in Boise, ID (a great venue by the way) was blessed with the presence of Devotchka Continue Reading

Our Dark Horse

Posted on 26 August 2009 by Gentry

“our dark horse is a salt lake city-based band. we are musicians with a decent mix of diversity and common ground. we do what we do because we love it. it’s that simple.” I love this band. It’s the kind of music I could listen to for days. Just pick any track off their new […] Continue Reading

Good Morning Maxfield

Posted on 26 August 2009 by Gentry

It took me a little longer that I would have liked to set the sound up for these guys but it was really worth it. It was one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. My favorite song from them right now is definitely Lovers Past. Continue Reading
