SALT LAKE CITY FESTIVAL CAFÉ, SICILIA PIZZA KITCHEN, Friday, Jan. 17-Saturday, Jan. 25, Free

Despite a lot of bluster to the contrary, Salt Lake City doesn't really get much of a dose of the "Sundance scene" during the annual film festival, aside from the screenings at the Broadway, Tower, Rose Wagner and SLC Library. One effort to bring a taste of festival fun, though, is the Salt Lake City Festival Cafe, formerly housed at the Beehive Tea Room (R.I.P.), and this year moving to Sicilia Pizza Kitchen. While it's not quite the same as the ASCAP Music Cafe that brings a nice array of touring artists to play in Park City each year, the SLC Festival Cafe does offer a killer slate of local bands offering an array of genres, and this year is no exception. It's nice the fest showcases Utah talent, even if most of the folks who will show up are locals who already regularly see the bands.

Here is the schedule for this year:
