paper rival announced today they're breaking up. the new frontiers also broke up about a month ago in case you missed that one. bad time to be an astoundingly good indie band. i guess the recipe is to suck a lot, be total jerks to everyone and write annoying music. then if you do that, you can be huge!

leave a comment and fill in the blanks: who's amazing and will never get popular and who's horrible and shouldn't be popular?

tonight @ kilby

tonight at kilby for only $6 you can catch some great locals and help a good cause. local artist tate law, of the lionelle, spooky moon, neon trees, allred and more was hit by a large truck a month ago and suffered some significant injuries. tonight's show at kilby is a benefit for tate to help him get back on his feet (once he gets back on his feet).

swing by tonight and catch sets from: mury, blackhounds, all time ending, loom, the hotness, ask for the future and more...

It's been far too long.

For those of you that missed Colour Revolt when they played the cafe this month, you missed one of the best shows that cafe ever had. here is a video of the song Naked and Red.

Band of Annuals and Joshua James tonight @ Kilby Court

This post is a little late, I meant to get it up much earlier today so you guys could have a chance to read it and go to the show tonight. Either way, you need to become fans of both of these musicians.

We are all big fans of both Band of Annuals and Joshua James here at From The Ship to The Sea (that is subtle humor, that will probably only make me laugh). Tonight will truly be an incredible show. I'm starting to feel like Conan O'Brien. Have you ever noticed he says that every night?

Band of Annuals are one of those SLC bands that everyone knows, everyone loves, and should totally be signed to a big indie label. They make really great alt-country, easy going, music. With both female and male vocals that would be successful on just on their own, it's hard to deny these guys.

Joshua James is what I like to call a "you make me jealous, and want to be a musician" musician. One of those singer songwriters that is just different enough to make a name for himself, but is also just as pleasing to the ear of even the most average of listeners (I'm talking C-minuses here people). If you like the social and political commentary of Conor Oberst, then you will like Joshua James.

I really don't think there is any way that you can be disappointed if you go tonight. However, I could totally see how you would be disappointed if you read this tomorrow and have already missed the show...

My bad.

If that is the case, check out the links, buy some albums, make some friends, sleep on their couches, call your mother only once a week, and only eat goat cheese. Life will be so much better.

Making sense only 68% of the time,

last night. last show.

the show last night was amazing! asher, emme & denison are incredibly talented folks. thanks SO much to everyone for coming out & supporting the cafe. we love you.

Crooked Fingers tonight @ Urban Lounge

Chances are you caught these guys for free this summer during the twilight series at Gallivan Plaza. If you were on top of your game and read this blog often you would have also purchased two for one tickets for tonights show at Slowtrain.

Either way, they're playing tonight, and it will be a good show. Crooked Fingers have been at it for years, and know how to rock various groups of peoples socks off. Bet me a millions dollars that you won't like it... go ahead.

I feel like I have posted this video already

future billionaire,
