Perfect Sunday night alert! Head up the canyon to enjoy Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals in the majesty that is the Snow Park Amphitheater. Ben Harper will be joined by Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue.


• Mumford and Sons and Portugal. The Man at USANA Amphitheatre

I’m going for Portugal. the Man (“Evil Friends” is still one of my all-time favorite albums), but maybe you’re going for Mumford and Sons. Maybe both. That’s what nice about the USA. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.
