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.

New Music Tuesday!


Great new albums out today including the latest by three prolific gents of varying stripes:

Elvis Costello returns with an album of material originally composed for the late, great Johnny Cash. The legendary country artist passed before he had a chance to commit Costello's genius to record, so Costello laid it down himself. The result is Secret, Profane and Sugarcane. Produced by T. Bone Burnett, it sounds like the title suggests. Take a listen

My All Time Doll - Elvis Coste...

Iggy Pop's Preliminaires is drawing mixed reviews for his attempt to produce a more "mature" and less "raw" piece of work. He might lose some longtime listeners, but he could just easily lasso a few new ones who prefer their music a bit more refined. Check for a full review in tomorrow's City Weekly.

King Of The Dogs - Iggy Pop

And finally, the glorious Eels. I've been obsessed with this one track off Hombre Lobo since it hit the Interweb last month. "Fresh Blood" is more like Iggy's old stuff in all its primal, lupine glory. The entire LP is well worth picking up.
