Description

“Triggers & Slips Presents a Tribute to Alice in Chains"

Most people when they hear the music of Triggers & Slips, it’s obvious that classic country, honky-tonk, and the heavy hitting songwriters who spent the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s in and out of places like Nashville, Austin, and San Francisco are their main influences. But as you continue to listen, and especially when you get to hear them in a live music venue, other elements appear. Different influences that veer from what you’d expect. Soon you’ll hear that they are not just a country band, and that they also incorporate elements from 90’s Rock bands like Blind Melon, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Sound Garden, but especially -Alice in Chains. The strong songwriting, un-rivaled vocal harmonies, and heavy hitting lyrics have been a monumental influence on the sound and style of Triggers & Slips.

Join us May 18th to hear Salt Lake City’s own Triggers & Slips pay homage to the music and songs of Alice In Chains while raising awareness and money to help fight the Opioid Epidemic plaguing our community. Triggers & Slips has been a staple in the Salt Lake music scene for almost 10 years, and have been developing their unique take on Soulful Country, Honky Tonk, and Rock.

Although this is a homage to the "MTV Unplugged: Alice in Chains (Live)" released in 1996, don’t expect this to be a note for note recreation. Triggers & Slips have been hard at work adapting the songs to their own unique style and putting together a 6 piece band who will perform these songs with stripped down acoustic instruments like the mandolin, acoustic guitar, piano, and upright bass. Also, included will be a special second set that will feature songs from other artists of the same era as Alice In Chains, who have had members impacted by mental illness, addiction, and suicide.
