Admission to the aviary is $5. Go to TracyAviary.org for more information.
Just the Chicks
What do an acclaimed country trio and a university in St. George have in common? A recent name change, to remove the problematic word “Dixie.” The country group, now known simply as The Chicks, is touring in support of its 2020 album “Gaslighter” — but will likely perform such earlier hits as “Goodbye Earl,” “Not Ready to Make Nice” and the Fleetwood Mac cover “Landslide.” The Chicks will perform Friday, August 5, at Usana Amphitheatre, 5150 Upper Ridge Road, West Valley City. The show starts at 7:30, with folk singer Patty Griffin as the opening act. Tickets available at LiveNation.com.
A delayed launch for Twilight
Salt Lake City’s Twilight Concert Series is set to kick off — for sure, this time — on Saturday, August 6, with indie-folk musicians Sharon Van Etten, Julien Baker and Angel Olsen co-headlining on the “Wild Hearts Tour.” This had been scheduled as the series’ second show, before the alt-rock band Rainbow Kitten Surprise abruptly canceled its entire tour (including a July 14 performance in SLC), citing mental health issues. The “Wild Hearts” show happens at the Gallivan Center, 238 S. Main St., with gates opening at 5 p.m. Tickets are on sale at 24tix.com.
