Les Femmes de Velour: Gils, Tess Comrie, Night Wings, Diatom

When: Thu., Feb. 26, 8 p.m. 2015

As Provo's music scene grows, it seems to be growing more diverse as well. There are many local female solo musicians and female-fronted bands that have been making music and facing the spotlights on Utah stages, and Velour's three-night Les Femmes de Velour event is a great way to see a variety of those artists in one spot. The first show will feature Alpine/Highland four-piece Gils, Tess Comrie, violinist/singer-songwriter Night Wings and Diatom. Friday's lineup will include Salt Lake City rockers Luna Lune, Provo pop-rock foursome The Blue Aces, experimental indie-rock group Shrink the Giant—who dropped their new full-length album, Faceless, in December—and indie-folk band Kitfox. On Saturday, performances by Jenn Blosil, Emily Brown (of Porch Lights), Stephanie Mabey (of The Lower Lights and Gusto) and Mia Grace will conclude this fourth-annual showcase of female musicians.
