LOS LOBOS, LOS LONELY BOYS, ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO, DEER VALLEY, Thursday, July 4, 6:30 p.m., $35 lawn/$45-$55-$65 reserved
I can't think of a more worthy way to spend the July 4 holiday than heading to Park City. Not only do you get the town's day-long party in City Park, fireworks at Park City Mountain Resort and the parade on Main Street--this year you also have the chance to see the season opener of the Deer Valley summer concert series, featuring Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys and Alejandro Escovedo. Anyone who reads my stuff knows that there are few artists I holder in higher regard than Escovedo and the men in Los Lobos, all of whom have been delivering smart, rootsy rock and roll since the '70s. In between, you have acolytes Los Lonely Boys, who clearly owe a debt to both fellow Texan Escovedo and the little band from East L.A.
