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.

James Miska Never Sleeps


You might be thinking, "that name sounds familiar."

Maybe you recognize James Miska from his work in Trebuchet or Yunavi, which is one and the same - Yunavi being the newest title under which the local group delivers its innovative sounds. Or maybe you've seen him perform with the zygote of a band Dunedain who've yet to lay down any recordings but who will appear at Yunavi's CD release show tonight at the Urban Lounge. Yunavi will also share The Wilderness with all-ages audiences at the Boing! House (April 11) and Baxter's Coffeehouse (April 13). Both events are donation-entry shows.

Whew! If that weren't enough, James Miska just put the final touches on his second solo LP, Time Alone, the follow-up to last month's Silverback Gorilla. Miska will play selections from Time Alone on April 13 at Slowtrain record store before "breaking down and rushing over to [Baxter's] Coffeeshop to dance and rock out. It will be a crazy night!"

Just one in a series, right?

Celebrate the fruits of Miska's labor and get to know the artist before Yunavi hits the road April 15 for a Western U.S. tour.
