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

Once again, if you think Utah has nothing to offer by way of after-dark entertainment, consider the many noteworthy options set out before you this fine spring evening.

Up - or is it down - in Provo, Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses take up residency at Velour. This all-ages event is a doozy! Bingham got his hands plenty dirty before laying down tracks for his debut album. Some folks think "Southside of Heaven" is cheesy, but I can hear the hard-earned soul dripping from his voice and I'm sold.

For something a little, OK, a lot louder, hit up In the Venue for Mogwai and opening buzzworthy act Women, Canadians with ties to Chad Vangaalen! Great noise. Great times.

And for the cool kids, Oh Snap! infiltrates W Lounge for some of that Scenster Siege-certified dance party action. I bet City Weekly classifieds ace Christopher Westergard will be up in that mother. Ask him to boogie with you. He's super nice. And fancy!
