If there was a smilie showing someone jumping up and down while pumping their fist in the air repeatedly, you'd be seeing it here.
Could your previously lame state have a conversation with my still-lame state, please? (Although we did get Arcade Fire and Muse out of some crazy dumb luck, the likes of which I'm sure will never happen again.)

Wild Nothing is the opening band on the Bright Eyes date now, and Phantogram is opening for Ghostland Observatory.

I like free concerts.

Ha. It's been called that for 25 years, the vampires copied us!

This is the first year they're charging money to get in, which I'm actually really happy about. Should make the actual "concert" vibe much more enjoyable.

Here's the full line up.

July 5: Beach House & The Walkmen
July 12: Raphael Saadiq and JJ Grey & Mofro
July 19 & 26 tba
Aug 2: My Morning Jacket & tba
Aug 9: Passion Pit & Austra
Aug 16 Iron & Wine & Kathleen Edwards
Aug 23 M. Ward and Devotchka
Aug 30 Common & tba

They're a hardcore punk group from Milwaukee called The Bald Assholes.

The early records are good.

Shouter saw them in a men's room once.

Great acoustics in there.

My friends and I huddled around an Android at lunch to get the line up. I actually want to see almost all of them, except for Raphael Saadiq and Common. The rest (especially when they announce the other slots) are worth the $35 season ticket.

I'm really excited for Beach House/The Walkman, and charging $5 sounds like a good idea too. It should, as mofo said, improve the concert experience.

Outdoor Concert Series | Red Butte Garden

Suck it.

Or at least, I'd be saying "suck it" if all the good shows weren't sold out.
