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.

Moreland & Arbuckle @ The State Room


Moreland & Arbuckle are definitely the type of act you want to experience live. The Kansas (not Kansas City) based trio helmed by Dustin Arbuckle and Aaron Moreland (with “silent” electric trio partner Brad Horner on drums) bring both an intensity and easygoing appeal to the stage, transforming clubs into front porches which, for some reason, always seem more suitable for singing the blues. The group invites plenty of raised eyebrows for their corn-fed roots, but the Midwestern boys know their way around a Delta blues song. Their LP 1861 combines the best of both worlds with echoes of traditional standards captured alongside roots and rock/punk influences that soar on Arbuckle’s screaming harp and Moreland’s various guitars (parlor, cigar box, electric, resonator, acoustic).
