Twilight Concert Series: YES!

Are you sitting down? The Salt Lake City Arts Council just released a list of confirmed performers (certain dates are still pending) for the 2008 Twilight Concert Series!!! I knew the organizers would cook up something stellar for this year's lineup, but no way did I predict they'd score BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE!!! The Canadian super-collective spawned Feist, Kevin Drew, Jason Collett, Amy Milan and Stars, Emily Haines and Metric... they are awesome and absolutely killer live. I saw them at Sundance in 2006, the same year they scored the soundtrack to Half Nelson. Back then, the lame industry crowd paid them little attention. I'm sure SLC locals can show them the love they deserve. Here's the rest of the top notch lineup as it stands:

July 10
The Roots

July 17
Andrew Bird
Josh Ritter

July 24
De La Soul

July 31
Keller Williams
Yonder Mountain String Band

August 7
Nada Surf
Tim Fite

August 14

August 21
Broken Social Scene

August 28
Neko Case
Crooked Fingers

Stay tuned for more info as it develops

And here's some Broken Social Scene:
