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 PressBackers.com, 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

The Juan MacLean have the potential to deliver a live show as bubbly and breathtaking as that of fellow DFA label mates LCD Soundsystem. To what extent the music created by John MacLean (formerly of Six Finger Satellite) and Nancy Whang (the female voice cheering her guts out on LCD’s “North American Scum”) will inspire audience members to apathetically sway like androgynous robots or jump up and down like kids on Pop Rocks is anyone’s guess. The new The Future Will Come contains both extended house anthems and, as the Juan MacLean widely acknowledge, sterile ’80s deadpan-delivered lines a la Human League. Tour mate The Field’s latest album Yesterday and Today features Battles drummer John Stanier adding to the organic side of the Swedish artist’s electronic productions. It’s hypnotic material that flows like dry ice in vodka. Do not miss local opener Laserfang who bring increasing amounts of mind-blowing noise and go-go- gadget magic to each new live show. The Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East, 10 p.m.
