This Weekend @ Da Clubs | Buzz Blog
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.

This Weekend @ Da Clubs




By chance last night I stumbled upon Super Buttery Muffins getting their practice on last night. Standing outside the shack that serves as multiple local bands' gettin'-good space, I was tractor-beamed in by some very tasty guitar magic. SBM, formerly Buttery Muffins, are indeed quite super. Mr. Will Sartain, Brian Pickles, Ryan Fedor and Patrick Buie are savory snack. Sample some tonight at Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East, 10 p.m.-ish. Also on deck this weekend:

Local blues powerhouse Sister Wives headline a benefit concert Saturday night to help raise funds for volunteers headed to Costa Rica where they’ll build a community center on the Osa Pennisula. The evening, scheduled to include an auction, dinner and kids activities, will culminate with the Wives whose show will be recorded for a live CD. Be a part of history in the making. Holladay United Church of Christ, 2631 E. Murray-Holladay Road, 7:30 p.m. All-ages. Tickets: 801-272-0050

Also Saturday, Franki Chan and Toxic Avenger bounce into Trapp Door. As one of the original figures behind LA’s booming hipster dance scene, Franki Chan helped introduce to the West Coast mainstream acts like MSTRKRFT and Justice.Chan also mans his own wheels of steel—and occasionally plays drums in HeartsRevolution— performing DJ sets nodding to ‘80s/’90s warehouse/basement shows. We Love DJ Franki Chan Mix Vol. 1 fuses together a tasty blend of Beyonce, Kanye, Tom Tom Club, Human League and Missy Elliott, among other collar-popping heroes. Trapp Door, 615 W. 100 South, 9 p.m.
