Rainbow Girls concert at the Ogden Nature Center

The Rainbow Girls stop by Ogden the Nature Center during a national tour of their latest EP, “Rolling Dumpster Fire” (December 2021). Describing themselves as “a bunch of sweet angels knocking right through your heart,” this Bay Area-based trio also have a brand new single to share, “Compassion to the Nth Degree,” which was released in June. The group of alt-folk singers since 2010 — now made up of Erin Chapin, Caitlin Gowdey and Venessa May — made music history when they headlined the first all-female show at the Fillmore in San Francisco in 2015. They have released four full albums and appeared with well known bands including The Brothers Comatose, Ani DiFranco and soon, Fruition. This summer concert in Ogden with Rainbow Girls “will find you lying on a picnic blanket with your toes in the grass, the sunset in the distance, listening to great live music,” says Ogden Nature Center. The show will take place outdoors in the glen behind the centre’s visitor center. — Angelika Brewer
