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.
I first caught Amanda Blank performing in March at South By Southwest and at the time wondered, "Who the hell is this and why am I just now discovering this total bad-ass?"--- Turns out (for a change) I wasn't hopeless behind the dance-club curve. Her solo debut just dropped today and mark my words, by this time next year she'll be as ubiquitous as M.I.A. and American Apparel leggings.
And for good reason. Blank is a Philly girl from around the way with a brutally frank delivery that's both sexy and terrifying.
