Nobody drives past Kilby Court and stumbles on it by accident. It’s a funky building, an old garage, at the end of a secluded courtyard just south and west of downtown Salt Lake City. People who get there want to be there.
Over the last 20 years, a lot of up-and-coming bands — like My Chemical Romance, Dashboard Confessional, Rilo Kiley and Death Cab for Cutie (which headlines a celebratory “block party” on Saturday, May 11) — have made Kilby Court a mandatory stop. A lot of local bands have opened for national acts, a big break many bands never get.
