Now this is how the pioneers intended to celebrate their arrival in the Salt Lake Valley: rocking out to radio-friendly alt-rock bands.

A free outdoor concert, featuring Train and The Wallflowers, is set to close out the Pioneer Day weekend, Saturday, July 26, on the street at 301 W. South Temple and in the east plaza of EnergySolutions Arena.

Train is the San Francisco band whose recent hits — such as "Drive By" and "50 Ways to Say Goodbye" — mix catchy hooks with oddball rhymes. Its next album, "Bulletproof Picasso," is set to be released in September, but has already produced the single "Angel in Blue Jeans."

The Wallflowers are fronted by Jakob Dylan and had their biggest hits in the mid-'90s with "One Headlight," "6th Avenue Heartache" and "The Difference."

The concert, presented by Zions Bank, is set to start at 8 p.m. No ticket is required; just show up.

UTA will be running additional TRAX lines to accommodate concertgoers as well as the final night of the Days of '47 Rodeo (which starts at 6 p.m. in EnergySolutions Arena.) Also, 300 West will be blocked off that day, from South Temple to 100 South.
