I apologize for not updating this in a long time! There is a lot going on in Provo music right now, so I should be back to posting updates more regularly after this. First off, our battle of the bands starts next week:
Have you heard Chance Lewis’s big announcement yet?
There are a few local bands with Kickstarters that are all worth checking out:
Baby Ghosts – they covered The Sonics at one of our Halloween shows and it was AWESOME! They also dressed up as characters from the movie Ponyo. I will post pictures ASAP.
The Archer’s Apple:
The Rooftop Concert Series (already fully funded, but it is still active for almost another month!)
In other news, The Moth & The Flame played a sold-out album release show on 11.11.11, and they have another one scheduled for 11.14.11. Congrats guys – and the album is great. SLUG’s podcast, Soundwaves from the Underground, previewed some of the album in Episode 18. Check it out!

Because of the BYU vs. U of U game, we will actually be having brunch at 11 instead of dinner. You can read everything about the Dinner and Bikes Tour on their website, but I, your friendly neighborhood blogger, just want to say that I saw them the last time these guys came through (I think it was a year ago) and it was awesome.
This time around, they are bringing a vegan chef (Joshua Ploeg) to make a meal for everyone; so, tickets are between $10-20 and this includes the meal. Joe Biel will have a collection of Microcosm zines (which I saw last time: AWESOME!) and will be showing clips from his upcoming documentary about bike culture. Elly Blue will be speaking more about bike culture and about other bicycling issues; it’s very informative and will help show how we can make Provo more bicycle-friendly.
Please stop by for an entertaining and informative morning – Facebook event
