The lineup for this Summer’s Twilight Concert series has been announced (dates pending), and it includes Sonic Youth, The Black Keys, and M. Ward. I’m totally stoked! The free shows supported by the Salt Lake City Arts Council allow us once a week every summer to sit on the grass, drink overpriced beer and wine, and believe that we live in a cool city. Great past show that I’ve seen: The Roots, The Bad Plus, Doc Watson, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and Earl Scruggs. Great past acts I’ve missed: Robbie Fulks, Richard Thompson, and Yo La Tengo.
I’m also eagerly awaiting the re-opening of the Redwood Drive In.
