On the night of January 22nd, Salt Lake City had the pleasure of hearing Bauhaus in full. The hall filled with fans lending their ears as long as Peter Murphy’s Musical career beginning in the late seventies influencing if not defining the post-punk genre. As Peter Murphy arrived on stage, it was clear as to why he has had a successful and long-standing career in music. Inheriting a sort of unbreakable character even his movement and where he moved was for an intended purpose captivating his audience old and new with a dramatic, brooding flair use of props his crystal-studded jacket even complimented the mood.
His voice called to you as if like a siren beckoning to come forward and stay a while. The crowd may not have been screaming at the top of their lungs there still appeared to be mutual respect and adoration between the audience and Peter Murphy.
Arriving on stage prior Desert Mountain Tribe captivated the crowd, they seem like the kind of guys you would love to stay inside with on a rainy day and carry out deep conversations while drinking wine and smoking Cannabis. They were an ideal opening for Peter Murphy with a relaxed vibe but a similar sound they led perfect entry. Stimulating your senses with their pych approach to rock.
While still being young in the industry its clear as to why they are still relevant, the lead Jonty had incredible stage presence it as if he has spent his whole life around the stage. I want to thank Imprint Entertainment for this incredible opportunity as well as the depot security and staff. The performance of both musicians was genuinely incredible. If you get the chance, don’t be afraid to lend an ear.
