The Salt Lake Tribune wrote about The Student Review relaunch and had this picture to go along with it – they’re all standing right outside of Muse! We are very excited about The Student Review, and we have a stack of them in Muse if you haven’t picked up your copy yet. Alex Wiberg, the blogger behind Muse, also wrote an article about Provo music. Head on over to their website to learn more about The Student Review.

To this week… and beyond!

On Wednesday, August 10th, we are hosting a ward dance party for the first time. If your ward is interested in having a party here too, contact us!

Then on Thursday, Radiation City from Portland, Oreg. is playing with His Name Is Simon and Don Juan [Facebook event]. Listen to some of Radiation City’s songs below:

His Name Is Simon and Don Juan are both relatively new bands, but Don Juan has already been getting some praise on Twitter:

Side Dish’s tenth anniversary show is on Friday, and Super Hero and Fatigi will be playing as well. Just in case you forgot, Fatigi won our summer battle of the bands, and they’re the band featured on our home page.

Tara Craig (from Austin, Texas) performs Saturday with Janey Lyon and Whitley Collier. Janey and Whitley are both located in Utah, and all three artists play sweet folk music.

On Thursday, May 19, BYU’s Divine Comedy performed some sketches at Muse. They kicked things off by throwing out glow sticks to the audience, and then they went right into their skits. Topics ranged from awkward first dates to songs that make terrible things seem ok.

Below are some photos from this event; click to enlarge and use the arrow keys to scroll through.

Monday Night FREE Rockumentary Series

Posted on: January 13th, 2010 by musemusiccafe No Comments

We’ve made some slight changes to our Monday night schedule for 2010. Our movie night, formerly at 10pm, will now begin at 9pm. We will be showing “rockumentary” themed films every Monday through the end of April 2010.

Our rockumentary series began two weeks ago with a showing of “Miroir Noir” which chronicles Arcade Fire in the making of their 2007 album “Neon Bible“. Last Monday we watched “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart: A Film About Wilco“.
As a result, our free open mic night, also held every Monday, will now begin at 7pm. Since both the open mic and movie night are free to the public, we ask that you support us in the form of a purchase from our cafe.
Here is the schedule for the remaining Mondays in our rockumentary series:
1/18: The Devil and Daniel Johnston
1/25: Hype! (Seattle Music Scene)
2/1: Heima (Sigur Ros)
2/8: Genghis Blues (throat singing in Mongolia)
2/15: Meeting People is Easy (Radiohead)
2/22: Directions (Death Cab For Cutie)
3/1: Anvil: The Story of Anvil
3/8: It Might Get Loud (Jack White/Jimmy Page/The Edge)
3/15: DiG! (The Dandy Warhols/Brian Jonestown Massacre)
