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. DONATE

Listen Up - Doves


I recently rediscovered Doves' Some Cities (2005) and fell in love all over again with the Manchester rock band whose brooding melodies and brooding good looks pack a mean one-two punch. Some Cities followed two full-length albums, the first of which secured a Mercury Prize nomination and helped them gain some footing in the states. My regained appreciation for Some Cities happens to coincide with the release of Doves' latest studio effort, Kingdom of Rust, which hits streets tomorrow. The boys continue to experiment with their style while maintaining the gorgeous, romantic vocals and warm blanket of sound that first earned them critical acclaim. Pick up Kingdom of Rust - and maybe Some Cities while you're at it, too.
