The 2010 Twilight Concert Series opening show

While we await official word from the Salt Lake City Arts Council on the details of this summer's Twilight Concert Series, details are popping on on various bands' Web sites—like who will play the first show July 8.---

I just got a press release from SubPop band Avi Buffalo, whose debut album arrives Tuesday. And at the bottom, in the list of the band's tour dates, is a gig opening for Modest Mouse at Salt Lake City's Twilight Concert Series

As a long-time fan of Modest Mouse, even after they went major label, had a weird hit with "Float On" and had Johnny Marr join for a spell, I'm pretty stoked. Isaac Brock and Co. have never disappointed with their live shows, whether playing to a small club or a large theater. (I DID skip their McKay Events Center arena show in Orem a couple years back. I'm a fan, but I'm NOT a masochist.)

Last week I stumbled on the New Pornographers tour dates that included a July 29 Twilight Concert Series show, and She & Him is believed to be the season closer in August. So far so good. And hopefully this week we'll hear the entire lineup, not to mention the official word on WHERE it's going to be (although, after talking to some neighborhood business owners down there, THEY at least seem to believe it's going to be Pioneer Park).
