[Local Music] Salt Lake City DJ crew Ted Dancin' (a trio that happens to feature my boyfriend but that in all honesty rocked my world long before we got together) played a special show last Friday with local pop-rockers Future of the Ghost who absolutely killed with the tightest set this writer has seen from them to date. Catch the band before they hit the road for a months-long tour this spring.
Ghost leader Will Sartain's old project The Tremula (which evolved from indie group Redd Tape) will also stage a reunion show of sorts tonight at The Urban Lounge. I saw Sartain along with fellow members Sean, John and Scotty packed together in a car last night and thought for moment that we'd flashed back to 2004. Don't miss this opportunity to trip down memory lane.
You can also get in on Ted Dancin' action this New Year's Eve (again at Urban) when the party gets real with Salt Lake City rockers The Wolfs. If the NYE shindig is anything like last Friday, prepare to sweat. In typical fashion, the packed crowd rocked hard all night, gaining speed on request hits including "We Built This City (On Rock & Roll" and, well, to be honest, it's all kind of a blur. Expect an eclectic mix of James Brown, Salt n' Pepa, Hall & Oates, LCD Soundsystem, Michael Jackson, etc. Also, this could be one of your last chances to see The Wolfs for a while as they plan to duck out and focus on recording a much-anticipated album until it's done, son.
