Archives For August 2012

Well, summer is quickly coming to a close & it’s time to welcome fall. Fall: the season of  Radiothon & me trying to hit a string of shows stopping in town. I’m looking forward to School of Seven Bells who will kick off September with their dream pop that I’m sure will mesmerize me into the extended Labor Day weekend!

August!!! Really? Where did my summer go? I didn’t go on that trip I wanted, or hike, or see old familiar faces. For me, August means a new chapter, new adventure, closures & moving on.

 

Oh boy! The day has finally arrived, My Morning Jacket returns to the Salty City! My first experience with the band was ages ago (2002 it think) when they opened up for the English band The Doves on the tiny side stage at Bricks. I remember watching these guys with their extremely loooong hair hanging over their faces and looking at my friends thinking “WTF? Who are these guys?” Of course “these guys” had already released like three albums & went onto becoming a very big deal. In 2007 a rare thing happened, my husband wanted to go to their show at the Depot. You see, it takes a lot for my husband to go to a show, it was this moment that I knew the band had become something.

Salt Lake, you got to hand it to the City Arts Council for booking this band for the Twilight Concert Series, they did a mighty fine job & I thank them.

Also, please arrive early to catch Provo boy (by way of Nebraska) & major talent, Joshua James. He’s been listed on Paste Magazine‘s “Next 25 Artists You Need To Know”. He’s toured with Ani Difranco, John Mayer & has performed at various festivals like SXSW, Lollapalooza & Bonaroo. He is currently recording his third album which will be produced by Richard Swift (wow!!!)
