I am going to be brief but there are some really good shows this week if you are able to catch them.
For those who aren't put off by him yet, Ryan Adams is sure to bring his swagger to his show Tuesday, July 31st at Red Butte. Don't really know where you can get information on this one but it may be worth searching out.
Blitzen Trapper is bringing their brand of schizo-americana to Kilby Court on either Wednesday, August 1st (on Pollstar and the band's Myspace) or Friday, August 3rd (on 24tix and Kilby Court's website). Try both nights, it will be worth your efforts.
As for free shows, Peter, Bjorn and John along with Apostle of Hustle will be part of the Twilight Concert Series at Gallivan Center on Thusday, August 2nd.
Lastly, local alt-country band Atherton are having a CD release show along side Paul Jacobsen at the U of U on Friday, August 3rd.
