As we move past the holiday and into the heart of summer, two of Salt Lake City's main outdoor venues are seeing their concert schedules start to heat up accordingly. Meanwhile, another relatively slow first part of the week awaits as we climb out of our collective three-day fiesta/siesta, thanks to the Fourth.

Red Butte - Sunday's fire apparently nothwithstanding - appears on course to host retro-chic tunes in the form of Pink Martini. The show is the first of nine concerts at RBG this month.

Hailing from Portland, Ore., Pink Martini in its 17th year of using its 12 members to blend traditional jazz with current world music sounds. This should provide the backdrop to an interesting mix of people - I'm expecting to see everyone from seniors to hipsters to people you never see at concerts - and may provide an unexpectedly fun evening at Red Butte.

Another perk of this show is that tickets remain on sale and with about half of the Garden's remaining lineup already sold out, that's worth noting.

Here they are singing "Hey Eugene."

Over at Kilby Court on Tuesday night, the Salt Lake Alternative Jazz Orchestra headlines a 7 p.m. concert. Tickets are $8 and this event offers a relatively rare chance to see jazz at Kilby.

Down at the Urban Lounge on Wednesday, local rockers Red Bennies headline a three-band bill featuring Birthquake and Plastic Furs. This should be a fun time. Tickets are at 24tix.com and the music starts at 10 p.m.
