So many options the next three days, you're guaranteed to wear yourself out. But you'll thank yourself in the morning for taking full advantage.
Tons of tunes to take in on Friday, starting with one of my big-time favorites in Black Francis, pictured. The Pixies leader is doing a solo acoustic show at The State Room, with local fave David Williams opening the show. Should be an excellent night if it's anything close to as good as Black Francis' last solo acoustic thing at The Urban Lounge a few years back.
Friday is also the beginning of the KRCL Hidden Hollow Concert Series, this week featuring Bronco and The Poorwills. The fun starts at 7 p.m. At the same time over at Slowtrain, Desert Noises will be playing an album release show to celebrate their upcoming Mountain Sea release on Slowtrain Records. Hyphy Crunk is spinning at The Metro on Friday night, and you can expect a big crowd to see him fill the dance floor. And The Rosebuds will perform their nearly perfect pop-rock with an edge, along with Other Lives, at The Urban Lounge.
In Centerville on Friday, you can celebrate Peruvian culture at the Festival Peruano en Utah.
Join City Weekly at Brewvies on Sunday for the season premiere of Breaking Bad.
And in what could very well be the best show of the summer, or close to it, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and openers Buckwheat Zydeco are throwing down at Red Butte Garden at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available. Read our interview with Sharon Jones right here, then check out the show on Sunday.
