Clothing Stores: The New All-Ages Venue

It might seem strange to see a band at Urban Outfitters, but the hipster clothing chain's bigger stores have been hosting live music for years. Salt Lake City's Gateway location started testing the waters as a venue a few months back with Band of Annuals, a show that looked amazing and sounded surprisingly good. With that, I give you a hearty endorsement for the next UB gig: Calico! The local experimental folk group will perform on Saturday, July 19 at 8 p.m. (following an 11 a.m. Farmers Market show). It's the last time you'll get to experience Calico's magic before singer/guitarist Brady Gunnell heads off to Rhode Island to hit the grad school books.

Come on down. Try on some skinny jeans and some neon ray bans. Then groove to the music

  1. i love BOA and Calico and want them to get more exposure than the usual Urban Lounge crowd...but Urban Outfitters? it just doesn't sit right...

  2. I feel ya. But the woman who organizes the shows is just interested in giving local acts more exposure. She's not looking to sell more neon ray bans. So that's something, I suppose.

  3. I love Bank of America too, Anna!!

    Ok, Ok, I know... Band of Annuals.

    Anyhow, greetings from Seattle!
