The Hotel Cafe Tour: Salt Lake City, UT

The Hotel Cafe Tour: Lenka, originally uploaded by calanan.

Earlier this week my editor (at Wasatch Woman magazine) sent me to cover The Hotel Cafe Tour:

...For the past 4 years, The Hotel Café has been presenting a tour that has hit every major market in the United States and UK. The concept of the tour was to share the same community vibe with music fans all over the country. Artists performed solo and would then share the stage with fellow tour mates. No cookie cutter corporate American Idols, just real music, written by real artists, surrounded by real friends, who actually have a story to tell.

Salt Lake's stop included artists Kate Havnevik, Rachael Yamagata, Meiko, Emily Wells, Lenka and Thao Nguyen and it was an excellent show!

Here are some of my favorites from the night:
