Provo Town Square’s courtyard had some awful free hot dogs but much better music last night. A free concert meant that all of Utah County’s “other” people came out of the woodwork to hang out, look pretty, and watch some bands. I was there too!
NightNight, with the Vibrant Sound’s McKay Stevens, Book on Tape Worm’s Scott Shepard, and Moth & the Flame’s Nate Pyfer, played their unique brand of Postal Service-esque Indie Rock. It’s hard to tell if they actually sound like Postal Service and Death Cab or if Shepard is just singing like Ben Gibbard. Either way they put on a great show.
The Vibrant Sound recently opened for Sean Kingston, whose song “Beautiful Girls” is routinely covered by me. For that, I applaud them. Their music is also some of the best in Provo. It’s pure fun, well performed, and just all around good hip-hop.
Hopefully I will be updating more regularly in the future. Send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you.
