THE HEAD AND THE HEART/BLITZEN TRAPPER, THE DEPOT, Friday, 8 p.m., $20
If it seems like The Head and the Heart have been on the road forever, well, that's pretty accurate. The Seattle band's visit to Salt Lake City Friday is part of their third headlining tour in support of their 2011 self-titled debut, and they stopped here to open for The Shins at Red Butte Garden this summer as well. If they want to keep coming around every 6 months or so, I'll take it, because the band's album was one of my favorites of 2011, and their show at Kilby Court was brilliant. Joining them is the also-excellent Blitzen Trapper, fellow frequent visitors to our fair town, most recently opening for Wilco this summer. Bryan John Appleby, who shares The Head and the Heart's hometown, opens the show.
