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.

Wallet feeling a little tight? Maybe it's time to start honing your roshambo skills. We're not sure if SLC indie-pop artists Kid Theodore practiced before heading down to Austin for SXSW. Maybe their victory at the AMP Energy Drink and USARPS League's Rock Paper Scissors competition has more to do with plain old karma. They are such nice boys, after all. The event (which is very real as is the league) was limited to bands appearing at the annual music and media conference. Folks like Silversun Pickups and An Horse came down to get in on the action at Buffalo Billiards. After several heated rounds, Kid Theodore's Cole Barnson emerged the victor and took home the $5,000 cash prize! Congratulate him when the band plays Velour on March 28.
