Get Out Tonight

Plenty of great shows vying for your attention tonight!

Portland's Alexis Gideon and Shelley Short hit up the Woodshed with two completely different sets. Gideon specializes in wonderfully bizarre electro-folk-hip-hop with an added claymation/animation component fueling his new video opera, Video Musics, while current tour mate Short makes her distinct mark on the country/folk movement with gorgeous, sometimes chilling, results. Salt Lake City's Black Hens open in the first of a two-night series sending off singer/songwriter David Williams to his great big recording gig in Seattle.

The Diplo-curated extravaganza featuring Abe Vigoda, Telepathe, Blaqstarr and the man behind it all, Diplo, arrives at Kilby Court for a night of eclectic punk, electro and hip-hop experiments.

Parts & Labor performs at Urban Lounge. The Brooklyn rockers' recent album, Receivers, includes segues and interludes provided by their fans for a distinct sound that reflects the best of both individual and group-generated creativity.

And finally, Meg White's biggest fan Ray LaMontagne plays the Great Saltair where he can better accomodate the huge outpouring of fans who quickly sold-out his originally scheduled appearance at a smalled downtown club. Leonna Ness and Salt Lake City's Paul Jacobsen share the bill.

  1. Paul got axed, oh, today ... and this show would have been so much better in Murray Theatre ... but it was still good. If I'll see Ray in Saltair, I guess I'll see him anywhere.

  2. What?! Why did he get axed?
