CAT POWER, THE PRETENDERS & JULIETTE LEWIS COMING TO SLC

I was perusing pollstar.com last night and saw a concert listing that was news to me. I stumbled across a show grouping Cat Power, Juliette Lewis and The Pretenders together at the Red Butte Garden Ampitheatre on September 23. It was a curious line-up to say the least, but I didn't care. All I was thinking was "OMG, CAT POOOOOWWWERRR!" I guess I was also sort of thinking "Juliette Lewis? Really?" Regardless, I immediately checked out the Red Butte website, but only found show dates through August. But, today, me being the music nerd I am, checked Pitchfork to find that they had just posted the confirmed dates of the tour and SLC is definitely on the list.

I'm not exactly sure how many Cat Power fans are out there, but I am personally a little bit obsessed with her and really thrilled to have the chance to finally see her live. Thanks Red Butte!

I, too, am a huuuge Cat Power fan, so I'm excited for this. The Pretenders are my favorite band and I love JL, too, so it's gonna be an awesome show!

Anyone know how we can get tickets?

Red Butte has yet to confirm the date, and when they heard I had posted something about this show, they suggested I might want to take it down--just FYI, and it's been a few days with no new "news." So keep your fingers crossed that the deal gets done.
And having seen Cat Power at DV8/whatever the name of that joint was at the end (Xscape?)—I reaaally hope you are Pretenders fans, too.

Oh, man- I will be a fussy girl if this show ends up not happening. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will!
