In C? Si! | Buzz Blog
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.

In C? Si!


I wrote a few weeks back about local artists performing Terry Riley's composition "In C." My introduction to the piece occurred in the wee, small hours of the morning in an art studio full of hip creative types.--- So bohemian. Of course, I stupidly assumed the show would bore me to tears - who wants to watch a bunch of dudes noodling around on their laptops to produce a 30-minute-plus electronic symphony? Good thing I took the bait because "In C" live is amazing! Backed by live percussion and stunning visuals, the constantly shifting work involves staggered repetition of melody. The effect is hypnotic. Experience the magic at one of Utah's coolest landmarks for a mere $5.

Salt Lake Electric Ensemble (featuring members of Red Bennies, Tolchock Trio and The Wolfs) plays "In C" tonight at Tower Theatre. Doors open at 7 p.m.
