Salt Lake City truly was a pleasant surprise. We rolled into the 5 Monkey's bar after a nice long 8 hour haul through the Sierra Nevadas to be greeted by Ryan and Craig: the super rad father son owners of the bar. Before we even got our first band set up to rock, Craig informed us he'd give us a $100 minimum for booking awesome bands on a Monday night...No way...WAYYY! SLC rocks way harder than anyone gives it credit for: Lucid 8 (bluesy hard rock), High Pressure Flash (prog rock), The Beginning at Last (not shitty hiphop metal) and Betty Hates Everything (hard alternative rock) really brought their A game for the camera to rock the hell out of that Monday Night crowd. The ever raging Steve Kos joined us at the bar for 3.2 Beer and kick ass rock, then hosted us at his room mate Jeff's amazing mansion in the hills. Man, that was a tough place to leave.
