It’s that time of year where you can actually use that picnic basket your in-laws bought you 10 years ago. The Red Butte Concert Series: one of the few places malbec meets Pabst Blue Ribbon and cheese plates…and you bring it in yourself. Utah does not have concert venues where coolers are actually allowed or you’ll see your college professor shot-gunning charcuterie. This lineup is certainly set up for an older crowd but there are a few shows worth mentioning. I would say not to miss Portugal. The Man for sure. I believe it’s their 2nd time performing in this series and they are always great live. The English Beat with Howard Jones is a favorite around the X96 studios. The Decemberists are always great and pair with a box of Franzia quite nicely. The Head and the Heart will pair with whatever you crave when someone breaks up with while you’re you’re wearing Chacos.
