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.

The Lemonheads Return To SLC




Never thought I’d see the day when Kate Moss and Townes Van Zandt appeared in the same liner notes, but stranger things have happened. Perhaps less bizarre, but still rather curious, is Evan Dando making a comeback with the Lemonheads by releasing a grab-bag collection of covers. Varshons, out June 23 on The End Records, features a wildly eclectic track listing with numbers by Wire, Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, G.G. Allin and Leonard Cohen whose “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye” includes a duet with actress Liv Tyler. Produced by Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), the LP takes on a largely country/ folk tone with the exception of “Dirty Robot,” a stiff, catchy dance number pairing Moss (sounding a bit like Metric’s Emily Haines) with computerized chorus. Varshons succeeds in fits and starts, culminating in a less bombastic version of “Beautiful” which, minus Christina Aguilera, is a surprisingly effective tearjerker.
