If you are interested in Salt Lake City local music scene, check out the all-ages, Kilby Court. You know, an indi-venue that features indi-bands with indi-names like: Ladytron, The Schwas, Dirty Vespuccis, and Harry and the Potters (my favorite). Also at this venue, you’ll also find some of Salt Lake’s hottest acts like the now famous Band of Annuals.
Don't Bother Knockin' The House Is A-ROCKIN'. The door to Kilby Court.
The other night, I paid $8 to see three great acts:
Kilby Court is cool because it is inviting and not the least bit pretentious. It doesn’t hide the fact that it’s a converted garage that would maybe fit two Volkswagen Busses. There is an attached courtyard so you can enjoy the rock-out-of-doors affect. Either way, check it out. Click for a map.
Here are directions: Go west on 700 S. At Kilby Court, (330 West) you’ll turn left. It’s easy to miss 'cuz it's right in the middle of a block where you might not expect a street. Look for surrounding businesses, the snappy sounding Best Way Janitorial Supply or the circa 1950s diner, Eds Place which looks like it is either really run down or just hasn’t been open for a couple decades.For more info. or if you're looking to purchase tickets or music played by the bands featured at Kilby Court, check out Slowtrain, a very cool music store.
