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!


You'd think after blowing my wad on records in Berkeley on Sunday the last thing I'd need is new music, but with July 30 Twilight Concert Series headliners Sonic Youth releasing their long-awaited The Eternal it's like those many hours scouring Rasputin/Amoeba's bins just slipped into the ether.

Sacred Trickster - Sonic Youth

Speaking of Ether, the local noise legends recently released a limited run two-track vinyl that's a must-buy for SLC music lovers: T-minus 150 copies and counting...

Also out today, Rhett Miller's self-titled LP.

Caroline - Rhett Miller

Miller's group the Old 97s will be in town July 11 headlining Snowbird's Mountain Music Festival. Steve Earle, Son Volt, The Cowboy Junkies and Justin Townes Earle are also among the three-day event's featured performers.

Other new releases worth considering - Mos Def's The Ecstatic and Girl in a Coma's Trio B.C.

As always, remember to Buy LOCAL!
