Life on the Fringe

The Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival is underway, with weekend dates now through August 6. The venue has changed, to the Alliance Theater in Trolley Square, 602 E. 500 South, Salt Lake City. The festival promises 20 works of original theater, performed on three stages, as well as workshops and a “busker bus.” The performances are on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays on both weekends.

August 3

An indie-pop supergroup

Salt Lake City’s Library Square isn’t the usual venue for a big concert (outside the Utah Arts Festival), but boygenius is your usual act. The indie-pop supergroup is a collaboration of three stars in their own right: Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. The trio released their first album, “The Record,” in March, and it produced the chart-topping single “Not Strong Enough.” The trio will perform Thursday, starting at 6 p.m., at Library Square, 250 E. 400 South, Salt Lake City. Illuminati Hotties are the opening act. Tickets are available at 24Tix.com.

August 4

An eclectic double bill

The indie-folk band The Head and the Heart and alt-indie musician Father John Misty will share top billing at the next Twilight Concert Series show, Friday night at Gallivan Center, 239 S. Main St., Salt Lake City. Miya Folick will be the opening act. The show starts at 5 p.m., and is sold out (but resale tickets can be purchased through 24Tix.com).
