The Salt Lake Twilight series continued its impressive 2021 lineup with Thundercat and Remi Wolf at the Gallivan Center. The show was sold out so I made sure to arrive early. I grabbed a bite to eat at one of the rotating local food trucks that the event brings out. Many people had the same idea as me and quickly filled the venue well before the main act.Continue reading “SLC Twilight: Thundercat August 26, 2021 Gallivan Center”
The Twilight Series kicked off its first concert since Covid on Thursday evening with Big Boi, one half of the legendary hip-hop duo Outkast. The Gallivan Center began to fill up about an hour before sunset. Fans walked around checking out various booths, grabbing some food at some of the delicious local vendors, or grabbing a beer before the show.Continue reading “SLC Twilight: Big Boi August 19, 2021 Gallivan Center”
Ogden Twilight – Fitz & The Tantrums – August 13, 2021
Review By: Vanessa Holt
Ogden Twilight has always been known as one of those events that are the best way to close out your summer and create memories for the books. It’s been two years since the concert series held their last show. For some people that night it was their first concert back since the world had shut down. For others, it was another show back after attending a few weekends before. Every person who entered that venue was ready to enjoy some good music. People were with their friends filled with excitement to see all the artists live and in action.Continue reading “Ogden Twilight: Fitz and the Tantrums August 13, 2021 Ogden Amphitheater”

Tuesday night, September 17 was one for the books. The second to last show of the Ogden Twilight Concert Series showcased Of Monsters and Men, with special guests Lower Dens and local spotlight Marny Proudfit. The air was cool and crisp. The season in Utah is slowly turning and fall is on the horizon. People were bundled up in flannels, ready for the outdoor concert. The crowd slowly trickled in throughout the early evening and Marny kicked off the show with a short folk/acoustic set. I was really impressed by her voice and loved that she started the night with just a guitar. Lower Dens took the stage next.Continue reading “Ogden Twilight: Of Monsters and Men w/ Lower Dens September 17, 2019, Ogden Amphitheater”

The Ogden Twilight Concert Series on Thursday night brought Alvvays and The National to the Ogden Amphitheater. The sold-out show was packed from the beginning, with a full crowd by the time Alvvays (pronounced always) took the stage. As they kicked off the night, the crowd rose to their feet and remained that way for the entirety of the evening. I had never heard of Alvvays, a Toronto based indie-pop band. As they began to play, I was immediately impressed with Molly Rankin’s voice. There was a sweetness to it, yet it was strong and powerful as she sang out to the crowd. Keyboardist, Kerri MacLellan’s voice complimented Molly’s nicely and the two of them commanded the front of the stage. Their 45-minute set had fans singing along with a relaxed yet exciting presence to the crowd. As they wrapped up their set, anticipation filled the air for the National.

Last week was the last Twilight Concert Series of the Summer 2019 and everyone seemed to have come out for the night because The Gallivan Center was packed! It only makes sense that the last show of the summer would be so busy. As summer is almost over, people are trying to hold on to the last little bit of it. Santigold was the last performance on this great, summer line up, and she had a giant crowd to perform to! But long even before she went on, the plaza was filled with people having a good time. All the food truck lines were long, people grabbing their beers for a good time, the giant games on the lawn were all occupied, it really was the coolest spot to be at.Continue reading “SLC Twilight- Santigold August 30, 2019, Gallivan Center”

The Ogden Twilight Series welcomed Phantogram to the Ogden Amphitheater for their second tour stop on their current tour. This show was so popular that it initially sold out at 4,000 tickets so about 2,000 more tickets were released with those tickets all but selling out as well. So almost 6,000 fans gathered in the amphitheater to hear one of the best Electronic Rock bands around today.Continue reading “Ogden Twilight: Phantogram August 17, 2019”

When students return to school in a few short weeks, and they’re asked by fellow classmates for some highlights from their summer break, I’m confident that this past Thursday’s SLC Twilight with Young the Giant, The Aces and Sego will be mentioned by every student who attended the Gallivan Center on August 1. This show had everything. Good weather, a great headliner, and two support acts with local roots and large followings of their own. This has been the strongest lineup top to bottom at Twilight this summer. This is one of those shows when you see it announced you think “Oh yeah, this is going to be good!”. And you just hope that it lives up to the expectation. I have to say that it absolutely did.
