After taking a year off because of the pandemic, the Twilight Concert Series is returning to Salt Lake City’s Gallivan Center with five concerts in August and September.

One date will be headlined by Utah’s own Neon Trees, and other Utah-based bands will perform as opening acts.

Big Boi (Aug. 19) • The rapper, songwriter, actor and record producer (real name: Antwan André Patton) is best known as half of OutKast. That duo sold more than 25 million albums and won seven Grammy Awards, including album of the year in 2003 for “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.”

The scheduled opening acts are the Salt Lake City-based electronic indie psychedelic dance rock band LaserFang and the Portland, Oregon, indie rock band STRFKR.

Thundercat (Aug. 26) • The guitarist from Los Angeles (real name: Stephen Lee Bruner) — crosses multiple genres, from funk, R&B and Soul to acid jazz to crossover thrash.

The scheduled opening acts are Remi Wolf, a “funky soul pop” who appeared (somewhat briefly) on “American Idol” in 2014, and Salt Lake City musician Giraffula (real name: Seth Cook).

Neon Trees (Sept. 2) • Tyler Glenn, Chris Allen, Elaine Bradley and Branden Campbell, who rose to fame out of the Provo music scene, reunite to perform for the home-state fans.

The San Jose-based band Peach Tree Rascals will open for Neon Trees, along with The Rubies, a Provo-based, self-described “girl band” that features Audrey Auclair, Collette MacFarlane, Avery Davis and Esther Olsen.

St. Vincent (Sept. 18) • The pop/rock singer (real name: Annie Erin Clark) has won a pair of Grammys — for best alternative music album (“St. Vincent”) in 2015, and for best rock song (“Masseduction”) in 2019.

Opening acts for this concert are TBA.

Lake Street Dive (Sept. 24) • The quintet blends pop, rock, R&B and Jazz.

The Utah band Pixie & The Partygrass Boys will open. More opening acts are TBA.
