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 PressBackers.com, 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.

"Anvil!" Strikes at Last



It only took 14 months, but the best film from the 2008 Sundance Film Festival is finally going to see the light of day.

Anvil! The Story of Anvil chronicles the attempts by the two founding members of the cult-beloved metal band Anvil to keep on rocking even as they become 50-something suburbanites. It's a hilariously poignant documentary, and it has found what seems in retrospect to be an obvious home: VH1. The network that was launched on musical nostalgia will be supporting a limited theatrical release beginning next month (handled through specialty distributor Abramorama), followed by a planned VH1 television premiere and DVD release this summer. Watch for it, and let the tearjerking headbanging commence.
