This month’s Localized is a cross-section of SLC punk: the visceral, dissonant hardcore punk of Foster Body, the surf-soaked party punk of JAWWZZ!! and the acerbic, bittersweet pop punk of Problem Daughter. These bands have shared bills over the last few years—Foster Body and JAWWZZ!! even share a drummer. They all name each other among the best modern punk bands in Salt Lake, and for good reason—they are. Problem Daughter have established themselves as punk stalwarts, JAWWZZ!! are tearing up the West with their mobile party, and openers Foster Body are building notoriety for their charged and unnerving live shows. The convergence of punk dexterity happens Nov. 8 at the Urban Lounge at 9 p.m., emceed by Ischa B. and sponsored by Bohemian Brewery. It’s $5 to get in if you’re 21+. If you’re not, watch it online at gigviz.com.
