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.

A couple of great albums came out on Tuesday, both definitely worth your hard-earned cash. Black Lips managed to release 200 Million Thousand despite their recent rumble with authorities in India, a kerfuffle that had the Southern boys kicked out of the country! They'll be stopping through Salt Lake City in April. That gives you a month to memorize all the songs on Thousand.

Laura Gibson's gorgeous sophomore release Beasts of Seasons once again highlights the Portland folk artist's hushed yet incredibly sturdy and powerful delivery backed by some of the Northwest's finest musicians (Laura Veirs, Shelly Short, Cory Gray, Rachel Blumberg and others). This could very well be Gibson's year. It certainly doesn't hurt that NPR loooooves her. She'll be hitting the SLC a bit earlier than the Lips on March 9. Here are a couple of videos to whet your appetite for both sets of artists.
