It’s not summer in Salt Lake City without the Twilight Concert Series.
The Salt Lake City Arts Council and S&S Presents released the line-up for the 2022 edition of the downtown concert series on Monday. Five shows are scheduled for the Gallivan Center, 239 S. Main St.
The arts council said in a news release that this year’s concerts “will not only support the local creative economy of musicians, but it will also contribute to the economic recover of other industries downtown” that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here is the line-up:
July 14 • Indie folk-rock band Rainbow Kitten Surprise, which hails from North Carolina and performed at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in 2017. Opening acts are Americana band Houndmouth and Utah-based Dad Bod.
August 6 • Three indie-folk musicians — Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten and Julien Baker — share top billing on the “Wild Hearts Tour.” Spencer will be the opening act.
August 11 • From the indie-music scene in Portland, Oregon, headliners The Decemberists will headline. They’re known for their stage designs, as well as lyrics inspired by historical events. Singer-songwriter Brigid Mae Power will open.
August 16 • Inglewood, California, native Cuco — who recorded his debut mixtape while in high school — will headline this date. According to Apple Music, his style is informed by bedroom pop and cloud rap. Opening acts are still being determined.
September 2: The final show in the Twilight Concert series will be headline by Shakey Graves, an Americana musician from Austin, Texas. He’ll be joined by bluegrass musician Sierra Ferrell and Michelle Moonshine, a country artist.
