Khruangbin

Though the band's inspiration comes from all around the world, their roots are distinctly Texan. Ever since their first rehearsals, Khruangbin have recorded at their remote Burton barn, their spiritual home. Which means their stage performance was honed not playing to hipsters in venues, but to cows out to pasture.


Spring Daffodils at Red Butte Garden

This spring visit Red Butte Garden to see the growing display of over 460,000 blooming bulbs! In the fall of 2017, staff and volunteers planted 32,600 more bulbs, including many in the Adaptive Beauty terrace of the new Water Conservation Garden.

 The bulbs usually begin to bloom in March with ground-covering mini-Iris in various shades of blues, purples, and yellows. Then in April, fresh, show-stopping daffodils herald the arrival of spring. Visit the Garden April 14 through April 28 for the best blooms. The Garden has over 239,018 daffodils and 228,413 other bulbs such as Allium, Anemone, Cyclamen, Galanthus, Hyacinth, and more. Flowering bulbs are not the only showy spring display— trees and shrubs also begin to blossom throughout the Garden—Serviceberry, Crabapple, Magnolia, Flowering Cherry, Pears, and Lilacs.  

 Since 2013, Red Butte Garden has been recognized as an official Daffodil Display Garden by the American Daffodil Society. Our display represents all 13 recognized daffodil divisions, which are based on floral parts and species derivation.

Arbor Day Celebration - ZAP Free Day

There’s no better place than Red Butte Garden to celebrate Arbor Day! As Utah’s very own arboretum, we can't wait to share the wonderful world of trees. Due to the generous support of Rocky Mountain Power, join us for a fun day of activities and leave with a free tree to take home (while supplies last). Thanks to funding in part by Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts, and Parks Program (ZAP) Arbor Day is a ZAP Free Day! Everyone enjoys free Garden admission.


Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

In early 2016, the release of Talk Tight put Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever on the map with glowing reviews from SPIN, Stereogum, and Pitchfork, praising them as stand-outs even among the fertile landcape of Melbourne music. Chock full of snappy riffs, spritely drumming and quick- witted wordplay, Talk Tight was praised "for the precision of their melodies, the streamlined sophistication of their arrangements, and the undercurrent of melancholy that motivates every note." (Pitchfork)

Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards

There's something somewhat frightening, yet utterly liberating when leaving the confines of a successful band to venture solo — especially a band whose latest record was called "effortlessly brilliant" by critics. But, such is the case with Erika Wennerstrom who is taking a break from her Austin-based rock band, Heartless Bastards, to deliver her solo debut Sweet Unknown.
