“This is the biggest concert I’ve ever played at in the US.” 

Just eight months ago, Laufey was performing at The Depot in front of a couple hundred fans. Now she’s selling out venues and hosting the largest shows of her career. Her performance at The Gallivan Center on June 21st marked yet another milestone for the Icelandic-Chinese artist who described it as her biggest concert in the US to date.

Friday, August 4th was another excellent night for the SLC Twilight Concert Series. Thousands of local music lovers gathered downtown at the Gallivan Center for the sold-out show featuring co-headliners The Head And The Heart, and Father John Misty. This was a show I had been excitedly anticipating for quite some time. I have been listening to The Head And The Heart since they began. They have become one of my favorite bands. So in February, when they announced their 2023 tour dates and locations, I quickly scanned the list, hoping to see Salt Lake City.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year.  Well, a year and a few days.  On Memorial Day 2022, Lord Huron played a sold-out show at the Sandy Amphitheater.  If you remember it wasn’t your typical Memorial Day.  It was cold and windy.  It was snowing in Park City and the threat of rain in the valley was real.  The skies fortunately cleared and despite the cold, the concert went off without a hitch. Mostly without a hitch. 

Lord Huron founder and frontman, Ben Schneider had played in Boise the night prior and I believe caught a cold that caused him to start to lose his voice. He powered through and from what I remember he only had to cut the show by one song.  Following our show here in Utah, Lord Huron was set to play a string of sold-out gigs in Colorado at Red Rocks Amphitheater.  I’m sure his vocal condition was scary, but from what I heard he did just fine in Colorado.

SLC TWILIGHT

The last of the 2021 SLC Twilight Concert Series had the Gallivan Center buzzing with excited fans as Lake Street Dive took the stage in Salt Lake City on Friday night. The band joined a growing list of artists nationwide to require attendees to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test result against COVID-19 before entering the venue, bringing some ease of mind to a sold-out show. Almost two years since the COVID-19 pandemic rocked the music industry, I finally found myself back in the pit looking up at the stage through my camera lens. Giddy, nervous, and feeling rusty, I waiting in anticipation for a fun night.

Salt Lake City Twilight: Neon Trees

Reviewed by Evelyn Salazar

The Twilight Concert Series in Salt Lake City is coming to an end, and one of the last bands on the lineup for this year was Utah’s very own Neon Trees. I was super excited to cover the show because it would be my first Twilight show of the year, especially after not having a  Twilight concert series last year because of Covid. And if I’m being honest I think Twilight concert series shows are some of my favorite shows to cover. The summer vibe, the beautiful Gallivan Center, with the city around you as the sun is setting and you’re vibing to your favorite music. It’s an overall great time!

SLC Twilight: Thundercat August 26, 2021 Gallivan Center

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.

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.

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.

Wow, Courtney Barnett can put on a show! Last Thursday’s Twilight Series was quite the concert, with a great lineup and a large turnout. Things kicked off with Salt Lake City’s very own Choir Boy. How I have never heard of them before surprised me, because they seem to have a very large following here in Utah. Their music and performance gave me some serious 80’s electronic, synth vibes and I absolutely loved it! It was fun to watch them on stage, dance along to their music and really get in the groove of things. They’re super stylish too. I was very impressed with them and added a new band to check out on my list!

If anyone has ever doubted hip-hop fans of Salt Lake City for not being true supporters of the genre, they were dreadfully wrong. For example, last night at the Vince Staples concert at the Gallivan Center. Wednesday night was another installment in the Twilight Concert Series featuring one of rap’s rising superstars Vince Staples, best known for his smash hits like: “Norf Norf”, “Big Fish”, and “Oops.” The Twilight concert has been bringing out some absolute killer acts and Vince Staples was a perfect act to introduce Hip-Hop to the mix.
