Wednesday, June 16, 2021 – As the Utah summer arcs back around, SLUG is delighted to bring back their outdoor concert series, SLUG Picnic Presented By Sparrow Electric. The first 2021 showcase features Peachy FingernailPK Opal and The Mercy Seat, each using their unique sonics as as springboard for a host of feelings at once weird, wonderful and cathartic. 

SLUG Picnic Presented By Sparrow Electric takes place on Saturday, June 26 in the parking lot in front of SLUG’s offices (230 S. 500 W. Ste. 125 in Salt Lake City); gates open at 5:30 p.m. and music is from 6–9 p.m. The first 20 attendees to arrive will get a free picnic basket with goodies from the event sponsors! 

Balabe Cuisine will be there to serve up dinner to hungry guests, plus attendees can shop from local artisans like Space Babes Art and Freckleface in between sets.
