With nearly 150 pop and rock concerts scheduled through September, Wasatch Front music fans have some tough decisions to make.On Aug. 1, for example, they have to choose among Bob Dylan at Usana Amphitheatre, The Cult at The Depot, The National at the Twilight Concert Series in Pioneer Park, Megadeth at the Maverik Center or the country rockers Due West at the Ed Kenley Amphitheater in Layton.The decisions are just as tough on July 19, when Steve Martin performs at the Deer Valley Music Festival. The same night, Heartless Bastards take the stage at Urban Lounge, Son Volt plays The State Room and the Country Explosion festival rides into Miller Motorsports Park.
