SALT LAKE CITY — Cold temperatures. Snowy roads. Hazy skies. Winter along the Wasatch Front can be brutal.

If you’re looking for something to lift your spirits until the sun comes back, you’re in luck. Artists from just about every genre are making a stop in the Beehive State this month.

Here are a few concerts to check out.

10,000 Maniacs

Jan. 9
Egyptian Theatre
328 Main Street, Park City

10,000 Maniacs racked up three platinum-selling albums in the late 1980s and early 1990s, thanks to hits like "These Are Days" and "Because the Night."

Though original singer Natalie Merchant left the band in 1994, the Maniacs have continued to tour and record ever since. The band released its most recent album, "Twice Told Tales," in 2015.

Cloud Nothings

Jan. 18
Metro Music Hall
615 W. 100 South, Salt Lake City

If Kurt Cobain were alive today, this is the band he would listen to.

Noisy and raw, Cloud Nothings aren’t afraid to pummel crowds with feedback and power chords — but can’t help but let beautiful melodies seep through the cracks from time to time. Just watching drummer Jayson Gerycz beat his kit into oblivion is worth the price of admission.


Jan. 18
The Depot
13 N. 400 West, Salt Lake City

The Depot will usher in 2020 with a throwback to the 1980s. And who better to headline the show than Tiffany?

The 1980s star known for "I Think We’re Alone Now" (the music video was filmed at various malls in Utah) has spent the past few years on reality TV — “Celebrity Wife Swap,” “Celebrity Fit Club,” “Food Network Challenge” — but music is still her first love. And fans still love her back.


Jan. 26
Park City Live Music Venue
427 Main Street, Park City

It’s a rare occurrence for Dutch DJ Tijs Verwest, better known as Tiësto, to make an appearance in Utah.

Over the past 20 years, Tiësto’s musical musings have ranged from trance to hip-hop to pop collaborations with artists like Post Malone and John Legend. His live act pulls from a catalog hundreds of records deep and is unlikely to disappoint.

Radical Face

Jan. 26
The Depot
13 N. 400 West, Salt Lake City

If you’re not familiar with Radical Face, you’re missing out. In fact, "Welcome Home, Son," may be one of the best indie songs of the 2000s.

For the past 13 years, Ben Cooper, the brainchild behind Radical Face, has shown his knack for creating incredibly intimate lo-fi masterpieces. Now he’s moving in a new direction. His new project, Human Mother, trades in acoustic guitars for synthesizers, beeps and boops. While he focuses on his new band, he’ll take a break from touring as Radical Face. So you better catch the band before it’s too late.
