Harvey Milk Blvd. Dedication feat. Tyler Glenn

Current Affairs, Music, Salt Lake CityJesse WalkerComment

From Equality Utah:

“It's not my victory, it's yours and yours and yours.” – Harvey Milk

When Harvey won his historic election in 1977 he knew the implications. If a minority could be elected to public office it meant that the system can work for anyone. It would give hope to thousands of LGBTQ youth facing an uncertain future. Harvey would be thrilled to see the achievements of the LGBTQ community in just 40 years and he would be shocked to see what we are doing in Utah.

This Saturday May 14th we are thrilled to be celebrating Harvey’s contribution to our movement with the honorary renaming of 900 S to “Harvey Milk Blvd.”  You are cordially invited to take part in our Harvey Milk Celebration and block party from 11am – 3pm this Saturday May 14th. Equality Utah, the Salt Lake City Council, and the Salt Lake City Mayor’s office will officiate the dedication ceremony around 11:30 am, followed by a musical performance from Tyler Glenn.

oin us on 9th and 9th with deejays, street vendors, food trucks, performance artists and more!

The Salt Lake Film Society and Equality Utah will be hosting three screenings of the Academy Award winning film Milk this Friday May 13th at 11pm, Saturday May 14th 11pm and Sunday May 15th at noon. If you haven’t had a chance to see this film, or you have a friend who has not, please treat yourself to seeing Milk again on the big screen.

The work is not yet done. Although we celebrate Harvey’s legacy this Saturday, we must also be mindful that there is a vicious backlash rippling across the country. We hope that seeing Harvey’s name on a prominent Salt Lake City street will send a message of hope and resolve to our entire community. We are here for the long haul. We will never return to the closet. We are here, like Harvey, to change the world for the better.

Your Friend,

Troy Williams

Futurists Unite at Further Future Music Festival

Art, Design & Architecture, Fashion, Music, Photography, Technology, TravelJesse WalkerComment

You can almost feel the bass levitating Robot Heart revelers at Further Future, a desert electronic music festival near Las Vegas that doesn't suck. The iconic DJ Lee Burridge at the helm of course here, delivering a Sunday sunrise sermon that lasted 6+ hours...? Just one magical moment that was a weekend spent cowering from torrential rainstorms, meeting new friends... chasing, dancing and occasionally rubbing shoulders with all-time favorite musicians, DJ's and performers. #FF002 was a mecca for party professionals from around the globe and we brought it like no tomorrow. See you next year!

On the Inside looking In at Quality Control

Music, Salt Lake CityJesse WalkerComment

The Salt Lake City underground scene is thriving and it's getting better by the month. From regular happenings at chic places like Zest Kitchen and Bar and The Red Door, to private art galleries and even churches; there seems to be no lack of places for dance music to call home in this fair city. One unique venue in particular plays host to one of the hottest parties in SLC. That place is the Fallout, and that party is Control Room.

Wall-to-Wall at Deep4Life

Music, Salt Lake CityJesse WalkerComment

We at New City Movement want to extend our thanks to Victor Simonelli for bringing his amazing talent and music knowledge to the second DEEP4LIFE at JAM last Saturday. Naturally... buckets of rain had to descend from the heavens during hours of operation, but that didn't stop the clubbing faithful which packed the party wall-to-wall. JAM was hot, sweaty and jumping with raw, artistic soul, (see video above) which included a warmup set by my friend RED SPECTRAL who tailored his sound to suit D4L perfectly. The cops even came to put their stamp of approval on things!

As some of you know, Victor has a special connection to Utah having spent four years here as a teenager living with his mother who worked for Job Corps. Victor graduated from Carbon County High School (of all places...) and credits the experience with opening his mind to new experiences, long lasting friendships and ultimately helping him to re-focus on music full-time upon returning to NYC. It was there that he he worked with the likes of Arthur Baker at Shakedown Studios with more big name artists than you can shake a stick at, later going on to develop talent and form his own labels in the US and UK.

For a man with so much success under his belt, Victor has little to no ego. He's one of the kindest, most giving people you could ever come in contact with and it shows in his approach to music, touring and beyond. He's truly present wherever he is and that was an inspiration to me personally. So glad he could come visit again. Stay tuned for a recording of his DJ set to be posted at our Soundcloud page in the coming weeks. Till next time...

Lunar Transit Spring Festival feat. Funktion One Sound

Salt Lake City, Technology, Travel, MusicJesse WalkerComment

I'm happy to be joining the lineup for this years Lunar Transit Festival outside of Ogden, Utah. Excellent group of local, national and international music makers coming in to make this fest the best. The real news here is that all those sounds will be pumping through a Funktion One system, the industry standard for dance music aficionados. Prepare to levitate.

Lunar Transit Spring Festival by New World presents

DETAILS: Join us May 20th - 22nd as we embark on a new creative journey through space and time just 40 minutes from Downtown, Salt Lake City. Sign up to the Lunar Transit mailing list for the latest information.

Lunar Transit is a music and arts festival focusing on bringing a cosmic beacon of high quality production and international acts combined with a stellar community to the Utah region.

Originating in mountains of Southern Utah at 10,000 feet elevation Lunar Transit is a destination where music and dancing flows into sanguine sunsets and tranquil sunrises. With natural surroundings it's the place to discover yourself and connect with both the earth under your feet and the stars in the distance. It all started with a group of otherworldly artists, builders, seekers, and explorers combined to form a community with the purpose of reflecting the beauty of spaceship Earth.

There will be several new features at this years Lunar Transit Spring Festival including yoga and workshops from morning until noon with a break in music to recharge from the night. A newly designed temple to serve as a cosmic symbol and place of peace.

We will also be bringing new and improved sound design with Utah's first ever Funktion One / Tannoy point source sound system.
