The New Mastersounds

The New Mastersounds formed in Leeds UK in 1999 and cut their teeth as the resident live band at a hip dance club, playing every Friday and Saturday night for nearly two years.

A rough 8-track recording of an early rehearsal got into the hands of some London DJs, and was released soon after on two limited-edition 7" singles. Invitations to play club gigs in London soon followed, and before long the band had established a reputation around UK and Europe as forerunners of the deep funk revival scene. Fast-forward to 2004: having experimented with various line-ups and recorded 2 albums, the original 4-piece band was invited to Chicago to open for the Greyboy All Stars at the House of Blues.

Scott H Biram

Scott H. Biram isn't a one-man band. He is the one-man band Quoth he: "My music is the bastard child of Punk, Blues, Country, Hillbilly, Bluegrass, Chain Gang, Metal, and Classic Rock." But don't let that fool you. Two-man bands like the Black Keys have made a lot of noise in the past few years, but Biram's got twice the cri de couer with half the personnel. He fearlessly preachs his gospel of blues, punk, country, metal and psychobilly to his congregation of metalheads,barflies, college professors and regular dudes via a pulpit that is just a stack of amps, a '59 hollow body Gibson and a stomp board. The Clash did Combat Rock, Biram traffics in Combat Blues. Don't be fooled by the whiskey and chicken antics, SHB has become a pre-eminent bluesman for the 21st century; when he gets locked in, when that groove is hooked, there are few better pure country blues artists out there. It's alternately hypnotic and harrowing.

Cursive

Indie rock band Cursive will be out on tour this winter. Check them out when they perform live at Urban Lounge!

Ask Your Mama - 12 Moods for Jazz: Langston Hughes Pro

Alternating between being sassy, scholarly and humorous, this multimedia performance of Langston Hughes’ epic poem Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz is described as “a poignant, eloquent and exceptionally soulful work,” by JazzTimes. Starring Malcolm Jamal-Warner, of The Cosby Show fame, and featuring music by the Ron McCurdy Quartet, this powerful music and spoken word performance evokes a pivotal moment in our cultural history.

Feb 6 - Feb 15
Swan Lake

Adam Sklute’s critically acclaimed 2010 production makes it’s triumphant return to the Utah stage. A true test of a ballet company’s artistic depth, Swan Lake is the story of a sad prince, an evil sorcerer and a beautiful woman turned swan. With heart-wrenching and glorious music by Tchaikovsky, this ballet is a feast for the senses and a must-see whether you are an aficionado or a newcomer to ballet.
