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.

MTV wants you to come watch a jerk get his ass handed to him by a professional fighter -- for free. Wanna go? ---

MTV's Bully Beatdown may be the greatest TV show concept ever for the recovering nerd. Survivor and The Apprentice impressario Mark Burnett came up witht he idea of tracking down people who have been harrassed by bullies, then daring the bully to get in the ring with a mixed martial arts pro. Bully wins the 3-round bout? They're $10,000 richer. They get their deserving butts whipped? The cash goes to their bullying victims.

You can be part of the crowd whipped into a frenzy by the prospect of seeing justice served. Bully Beatdown will be shooting live in Salt Lake City next week -- at a converted warehouse at the corner of 700 South and 400 West -- and you can be part of the crowd on one of the shooting days for free. Tickets are still available for tapings Monday, Aug. 3 - Wednesday, Aug. 5. Just head here and claim your ducats.

Please note: MTV wants attendees who "appear to be between the ages of 18 and 25." So either be young, or look young.
