Band Of Annuals
HQ: Salt Lake City, UT
Discography: Let Me Live, Band Of Annuals EP , Repondez
Why You Should Check Them Out:
"...The alt. country album of the year has gone unnoticed seemingly, by everyone. With it’s minimalism approach leaving room for just about everyone to move on into the wide expanses of the recording and feel right at home it's the perfect to get lost with..."--IndieRockReviews.com
"That devastating combo of heartbreaking alt-country earnestness and perfect pop-hook craftsmanship is elusive, which makes the victory all the sweeter when a band in your own back yard nails it. Band Of Annuals are that band right now." (BF) City Weekly

LOVE YOU LONG TIME
We decided to kick off this portion of our blog with Utah locals "Love you Long Time"... Because... how can you not love them? I tried to not fall in love... I almost gave myself an aneurysm.
HQ: Salt Lake City, UT
Style: Synth-pop meets 80's Hip-hop
Discography: "Party 'Til You're Pooped, "Dont Poop on My Party" New Album Out In October Party To The People
Why you should listen to 'em: First, their lineup consists of musicians named MC Oz, Sally Kat, Chains, and Professor Liam. Second, absolutepunk.net sited them as heirs to the synth-pop throne. Third, They are fun as all get out. You cant help but smile, dance and sing along; I dont care if you like synth-pop or not. And Fourth, They are playing with Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer in Februrary.

So, this might have been the best labor day of all labor days in the history of laboring.
Perfect weather, neither of us had to be in to work... AND we got to see another one of my favorite bands... The Stiletto Formal (myspace.com/thestilettoformal)
They put on just a great live show, tons of energy and super dance-able. Anyway, I have a history with these guys. To make it short, we opened for them years ago, and they crashed at my place, ( I was living in the dorms at the time).
So, this time around, they remembered that night, we ended up talking at the merch table, and they made their way over and crashed with us again. It was alot of fun to share our new home with them, and just catch up. They're great.
