Peter Frampton

Peter Frampton • April 9, 2024 • Eccles Theater

Last summer Peter Frampton was scheduled to play a show at the Sandy Amphitheater.  I strolled up to the venue about 20 minutes before showtime to find a long line outside.  That was pretty unusual for shows that I’ve been to in the past at Sandy Amp so I wondered what the situation was.  I was fortunate enough to surpass the line with my media credentials and go inside the venue to try and get the inside scoop. What I discovered was that there would be no Frampton concert due to some unforeseen technical issues.  My hope was that the show would be rescheduled, but that doesn’t always happen.  I wondered if I missed my chance to see Peter Frampton live.

Minnesota-based singer-songwriter and guitarist, Charlie Parr made a tour stop at The Commonwealth Room on Saturday, April 6.  Parr seems to be almost constantly on the road.  A troubadour making his way through the country and around the world, bringing songs from his eighteen (yes! 18!) albums to fans of good music.  On this tour, Charlie Parr will be presenting music from his latest album, Little Sun.  Released on March 22.  I’m not quite sure how Parr chooses from such a vast catalog.  I was excited to be seeing him for the first time.

Slow Hollows

On March 19th, Salt Lake City had the pleasure of welcoming LA-based band Slow Hollows to Kilby Court where they performed for a small, yet eager audience of Tuesday concert-goers. Kilby Court, a familiar and charming setting to most locals, offered a perfect scene for Slow Hollow that night with its grungy and dark atmosphere. The night featured a small set by local band Sunhills who kicked off the show with a mix of indie vocals and surrealist sounds followed by the extensive works of the much anticipated Slow Hollows.

Dawes? Good!  Lucius?  So good! Dawes & Lucius??? Wow!  I was not prepared for how good this concert was going to be. We’ve had the privilege of covering Dawes several times over the years and last year we were excited to review Lucius.  These are some of the best live bands that come to Utah.  When I saw that they would be touring together and that they would be playing The Commonwealth Room I was really hoping that Utah Concert Review would be there to cover the show.  Fortune favored us and we were there!
