We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

In The Loop: 11/08/08. Hey, It's That One Dude!


First off here's the latest addition to the 337 Memorial Wall.

--- Next, let's get to it since I got some questions about it.  Yeah, that's me in In Utah This Week.  Showing some local artists some love and making some discs float in air.  Oh, and I did an interview for the "Scene In SLC" page.  Got to harass the staff and chat up the scene, also saw a sea of computer towers that I wanted to build like legos into a fort and make a stand in their office.  Deck myself out in keyboards for armor, launching mouse grenades and catapulting monitors.  But I didn't have the time to pull that off, so I ate vegan cake instead.  So now you get to know something about me, sorta, and kinda know what I look like from the chest up.  Here's a picture of what that desk looked like before I attacked it.

Also made my way around downtown last night to photograph the Proposition 8 Protest March that went around the LDS Temple and offices.  Quite a sight to behold, our own cameras and footage didn't do the march justice.  And apparently the SLC march has made the news headlines for the nation at large.  Every slogan you can think of being chanted, cars  and Trax trains honking in support, Salt Lake police actually blocking off the streets for it to all flow so smoothly.  And of course the highlight of seeing thousands standing at the office's main doors in a rallying cry of support.  The GLBT community definitely made their voices heard for the nation to hear last night, and I'm quite sure the protests are only getting started.

On a downer note, it appears that The Paladium is going to be closed for much longer than some suggested.  I've learned never to close the book on a venue until an official owner or high-up manager comes out and says "we're done."  But I've gotten no word from the venue as to what they're doing, and with no shows booked and their own main website shut down, I think we've seen the final days of the 6th North club.  At least for now.  On a brighter note, I'll start posting dates for The Cell Block with some other venue postings in the works.

The calendar is mostly updated for the rest of November, which was dragging due to server issues. This week I'll be chatting with Red Light and their move, The Manhattan and it's reopening, and who knows what else this week and next.  As always, we'll see what happens.
