Music is back at Red Butte
A sure sign of summer — and a sign that people are putting the COVID-19 pandemic behind them: Concerts are back at Red Butte Garden. The series starts Wednesday, May 18, with Icelandic blues-rock band Kaleo (moved from the originally scheduled Tuesday, May 17 date), and continues Friday, May 20, with the Trey Anastasio Band, the side project of Phish’s guitarist. Both start at 7 p.m.; gates open at 6 p.m. Tickets for the public are $57 for Kaleo, $65 for Anastasio (subtract $5 for Red Butte Garden members), and available at redbuttegarden.org/concerts.
Yoga at sunset
The Gateway shopping center, in downtown Salt Lake City, has brought back outdoor yoga, with an instructor, on Wednesday evenings, now through August 28, starting at 7 p.m. in the Olympic Plaza, 10 N. Rio Grande St. Space is limited, so make reservations at atthegateway.com. Bring your own mat.
Movies for kids
The Tumbleweeds Film Festival for Kids, a weekend of movies and workshops for children presented by the Utah Film Center, happens Friday, May 20, through Sunday, May 22, at the Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center, 2525 Taylorsville Blvd., Taylorsville. The Vietnamese movie “Maika,” about a boy who meets an alien girl with amazing powers, will be the opening-night film on Friday. For tickets and information, go to tumbleweedskids.org.
