Join Cargo Concert Hall at Whitney Peak Hotel for a very special concert under the Reno Arch with Buddy Guy, Todd Snider, and G Love and Special Sauce. Buddy Guy is known as one of the most celebrated jazz guitarists of all time, mixing Chicago blues with classic rock and roll. Todd Snider is an alt-rock/blues hybrid artist who got his start in the Memphis music scene after growing up all over the United States. He released a number of albums in quick succession in the late 90s and early 2000s. His most recent album was released in 2012. Alternative hip hop band G Love and Special Sauce hail from Philadelphia and are best known for their somewhat sloppy, laid back blues sound featuring drums and bass. Around since the early 90s, they got started as the house band at The Plough and Stars bar in Massachusetts before going on to release albums and tour the world. The band members have varied over the years, although G Love, who started the group, has remained a staple. Their most recent album, Sugar, was released in 2014.
The Oh Hellos
8 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 29

Consisting of Maggie and Tyler Heath, the Oh Hellos are joined by a rotating cast of 13 other people on a regular basis to make up an eclectic folk band. They'll be joined by Joseph, a band of three sisters from the Pacific Northwest — their website says to "expect honest words and genetically perfected harmonies."
