Utah is known for having an outsized number of excellent bands streaming tunes into the ears of eager local listeners. Imagine Dragons, Fictionist and Neon Trees all hail from the Beehive State, just to name a few of the more recent groups to make it big. All of them started playing locally at places like Urban Lounge, Velour and Muse Music, where you could go and see the next big thing tonight if you really wanted to. Right now there are hundreds of fantastic bands playing all the time. Here’s a sampling of three of the best, and we’ll be featuring more soon.
