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!


Age ain't nothing but a number as demonstrated by today's new music picks, with both Spinal Tap and Tiny Masters of Today representing on opposite ends of the lifeline spectrum. The former recently went on tour not by fancy, comfortable jet airplane but in a bus, old-school DIY-style. The comedians/musicians still rock (hilariously). Their latest release Back from the Dead is life imitating art turned to 11.

Tiny Masters of Today are veritable veterans releasing their follow up to the star-studded debut Bang Bang Boom Cake. Now 13 and 15, Ada and Ivan are back with Skeletons featuring new drummer Jackson Pollis (former beat-keeper Russell Simins of John Spencer Blues Explosion had other bidness to attend to) rounding out the Brooklyn trio. The record is an electronic/organic work of cotton-candy punk pastiche with an undercurrent of wise-beyond-their-years social commentary. Whether or not you agree with David Bowie's assessment of the band ("genius"), they make music that's incredibly catchy, fun and a refreshing break from the Jonas Brothers (who incidentally also have a new LP out today).

Also in stores, the long-awaited Spinnerette debut featuring Brody Dalle of the Distillers. Is it better than the album her ex Tim Armstrong just released with his band Rancid? That's your call.
