Salt Lake City, Sammy Owen Blues Band, Purple Tusks
Eclectic and genre-defying are two terms bandied around when describing a new band with alarming frequency, but SALT LAKE CITY genuinely fit the bill. Their cinematic, classical and jazz influenced alternative musical storytelling makes you want to sit up and listen. SALT LAKE CITY are a band that meanders through genres, not afraid to dip their musical toes wherever they please with references to the intricacies of human tendencies and emotions. The unusual instrumental layering gives a depth and warmth that draws in the listener whilst the band shares their collective stories in a manner that is easy to listen to, but never simplistic or overly sweet. There is an experimental edge that is readily coupled with the acoustic guitar vein that runs through all their music. Joining them at Bar Open this Thursday are pals CITRUS JAM, SAMMY OWEN BLUES BAND and PURPLE TUSKS.
Doors: 9pm / Free entry
