Contributor Limelight: Nick Kuzmack

Senior Staff Writer, Copy Editor

Nick Kuzmack is a man about town who’s written for SLUG since August of 2013. You’ve likely cut a rug at one of his lively, sock hop–style DJ nights where he spins vinyl as DJ Nix Beat, playing the best of vintage punk, rock n’ roll, glam, power pop, reggae, ska and soul. Kuzmack maintains a voracious appetite to listen to, review and write about the styles of music that he loves for SLUG and beyond. In this issue, you’ll want to read his Localized features about local punk bands The Nods and Jail City Rockers (pgs. 6–7), as well as his interview with legendary L.A. punk band X’s very own John Doe (pg. 34). What’s more, Kuzmack lends his sharp mind to the SLUG copy editing team. He’s a renaissance man of Salt Lake City, and we love having him on Team SLUG! You can dig all things Nix Beat at
