If you look past Salt Lake City’s reputation for harsh winters, liquor laws, and religious overreach, you can find a musical community beaming with diversity and talent. Venues cover the city and there are bands and solo artists, and Lorin Walker Madsen. After touring with several other bands and projects in the last decade, Lorin found his niche as a solo artist, which allowed him to shape his own sound. Whether it is with his full band of Hustlers (playing tonight) or solo with a kick drum and a guitar, Lorin blends attitude into his own brand of high desert honky punk. Lorin Walker Madsen lives for playing music on the road.
So steamy is the atmosphere at Café De Ouwehoer, in the heart of Rotterdam's former harbour red light district, that you might think manly seamen and ladies of leisure will come staggering in at any moment.
