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.

First, if you've never seen the great Josh Ritter and his band live, you need to haul ass over to the Urban Lounge on July 22 to do so (w/Langhorne Slim supporting). --- Ritter is Springsteen-esque in his songwriting/singing talents and this Moscow, Idaho boy is one of the most positive, enthusiastic and energetic performers I've ever seen. You will not be disappointed. He brought down the house at his Gallivan Center show last summer.

Second, The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter is one of the best albums you'll ever hear -- 100% solid from start to finish.%uFFFD Go buy it. You can listen to it in full for free here. It's worth the price of the CD for the tune "Right Moves" alone -- one of the catchiest tunes I've heard in years, with great blasts of kitschy horns.
