When a friend calls you and asks if you would like to start a band with him and a man named “Snake,” your only question should be, "When is rehearsal?" So goes the story of heavy-metal legends Skid Row, whose guitarist, Scotti Hill, received such a call in 1987 from his buddy and current band mate, bassist Rachel Bolan. Just two years later, the trio added frontman Sebastian Bach and released a self-titled album that sold more than five million copies. The debut featured "18 and Life," a narrative track that taps into adolescent rage and its consequences, as well as "I Remember You," a ballad that recalls the electrifying feeling that Benjamin Franklin felt the first time he was struck by lightning. The band followed up with 1991's Slave to the Grind, which hit the Billboard charts at the No. 1 spot, largely propelled by the single "Wasted Time." After parting ways with Bach in the late '90s, the band landed Johnny Solinger, the charismatic Texan who still serenades crowds with the band's catalog.
Warming up the stage at Park City Live, Liberty Lush's heavy-hitting quintet comes out of Idaho Falls with an origin story as rock ‘n’ roll as a party bus wearing sunglasses. Ryan, Ryan, Jade, Travis, and Ron all happened to choose the same dumpster in which to deposit the remains of their respective nights out, earning each a nickname based on their drink of choice. Now X, Ron Rico, Johnny Walker, Lord Calvert, and Rip Van Winkle, the five keep heads banging with mercilessly shredded guitars and punk-rock vocals.
Park City Live
Underneath Park City Live’s shimmering laser light system, a slew of musical acts shine. The energetic venue is equally at home pulsating with dance music or hosting a stripped-down acoustic show, beckoning a diverse crowd of music aficionados to its dynamic confines. But the venue didn't begin life as a haven for audiophiles and their ears. The historic Summit County War Veterans Memorial Building, completed in 1940 following a fire, was originally home to an American Legion room, rifle range, gymnasium, and the Boy Scouts. But by 1984, the entertainment needs of the city had changed, and the building began providing recreation of the more artistic variety. Today, the space serves as the home for Park City Live, as well as O’Shucks Bar & Grill and Rock ‘N’ Reilly’s Irish Pub.
