Issue 297 - September 2013

Chelsea Wolfe and True Widow

“A lot of different forest habitats need to burn in order to germinate new life … I think that’s something that’s also reflected in us. We have to go through hard times and painful times in order to learn,” says Chelsea Wolfe in regard to the title and theme of her new album, Pain Is Beauty. 

Localized

Salt Lake City is set to soar through space and time on Sept. 20 with this month’s Localized, featuring the psychedelic sludge of The Weekenders combined with the classic blues rock quintet of The North Valley, alt-indie rockers The National Parks opening at 9 p.m.

Kathleen Hanna

“I don’t want to be an icon, I just want to be in a band!” says Kathleen Hanna of her latest musical project, The Julie Ruin.

Shogun

If a James Bond–style story isn’t the most badass way to tell how traditional sushi made its way into the state, then we might as well be critiquing the evolution of a Mormon tuna casserole. It all started with a man named Toshio Osaka, aka Sensei, and his special assignment from the FBI to teach Japanese martial arts in our little dust bowl.
