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. DONATE

Live Picks: Columbo Edition


Looks like Aimee Mann's performance at The State Room is sold out - that's one less concert vying for your attention this fine October evening. Our suggestion: hit up Slowtrain (221 E. Broadway) at 7 p.m. for a free, all-ages sneak preview of Will Sartain's forthcoming CD release gigs (Oct. 17 and Oct. 24). His new album is arguably his best - an ode to heartbreak and picking up the pieces one sad, beautifully orchestrated song at a time.---

Later, head to Urban Lounge for City Weekly's pick o' the month, Yo La Tengo. You can read all about one of Brian Staker's favorite indie groups - and Hoboken's finest - here.

Also tonight, hey look! It’s Sean Tillman, aka Har Mar Superstar, back from a wise retreat from the spotlight. If he was growing tired of his stage persona, it was only a matter of time before we couldn’t stand the humorously grotesque/ flamboyant R&B singer. His new album, The Handler, features a rather random cast of collaborators, including P.O.S., Greg Kurstin (The Bird & The Bee) and Adam Green (Moldy Peaches), among others. The jams are smooth, but this is one act who takes things to a whole other level live. Catch him at Club Vegas.
