The Cure at The Viv

It’s hard to believe that The Cure — the English rock band that pretty much invented the mopey Goth look and sound — has been around more than 40 years. The band, led as always by Robert Smith, is performing Sunday at Vivint Arena (changing to the Delta Center in July, though some of the signs are up already), at 301 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City. Scottish indie-rock band The Twilight Sad (which sounds like the name of a Cure song) is the opening act. Tickets available at vivintarena.com.

June 8-10

Music near Capitol Reef

The Fort Desolation Fest, a three-day event of music in the outdoors, is happening Thursday through Saturday at Cougar Ridge Resort in Torrey — just west of Capitol Reef National Park. Headliners include rock singer The White Buffalo on Thursday, Americana musician Shakey Graves on Friday, and blues/rock/soul act Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals on Saturday. On-site camping spots are sold out, but there is off-site camping available. Tickets and passes are available at fortdesolation.com.

June 9-11
