OK, so I'm going to try not to stay too bitter about the SLC Arts Council spilling the beans to the Deseret News without giving us a heads up first. Shouldn't be to hard to soothe the sting considering the artists the council has managed to score for this year's Twilight Concert Series. A partial list of names has been revealed and one of the jaw-dropping headliners is ... drum roll ... hyperventilate ... THE BLACK KEYS!! Oh me, oh my! What a great moment in Utah history. If you're unfamiliar with the two-man heavy-blues/rock powerhouse, get thee to a record store asap. Keys singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach also recently released a solo LP and it's definitely my favorite album of 2009. Other artists scheduled to appear include M. Ward and Bon Iver. Stay tuned for more late-breaking Twilight updates.
