New York Rifles — from Portland — have 2 shows planned for Thursday:1. Heavy Metal Shop (and it's not their first time there)63 Exchange Pl. Salt Lake CityFREE ~ ALL AGES ~ 4pm2. Burt's Tiki Lounge w/ The Jingoes & Coatsville726 S State St, Salt Lake City $6 ~ 21+ ~ 8pmFrom the entertaining band's entertaining bio: If the sixties played the eighties and sounded like the seventies that may be the nut shell New York Rifles sit under, but as with the shell game played on the streets of New York, once you think you have them pinned down you find they're under another shell. Is this a swindle to take you for a dollar? Not if you understand that you're paying to watch the skill of the shell handler and be taken by the trick. New York Rifles understand the trick is to keep the heart on the sleeve where it belongs. They know that rock is best when it's raw, naked, and dirty. They're in the business of stripping it down not dressing it up, just glistening skin, pressing desire, and a quickening heartbeat.
