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.
a day early and pushing onward into the heavy release schedule of the
month, we’ve got two more local releases to talk about today. With
special notice to our far northern music lovers and the rarely
covered music scene in Cache County! --- First up tonight if you
make your way down in Provo, you’ll be able to catch the release
show for Nate Baldwin & The Sound! Following up his solo EP
(The Complete) from 2008, Baldwin formed a band and pushed
himself and them over nearly a year to produce a full length. The end
result: Maybe, This Is Who I Am. With touches of his first on
the canvas, there's a very vibrant feel of pop/rock that strangely
resonates as genuine, and is a definite step up for the growing local.
Joining them tonight at Velour will be Shady Chapel, J. Wride and
Cody Taylor. Just $5 starting around 8PM.
night, make the long drive up to Logan as hometown band The Shuttles
put out their sophomore release, In This Valley. A frequent act
of Why Sound, the five year veterans are probably one of the best
kept secrets of their music scene. Their debut album, Speaking In
Letters, did well locally but didn’t make much noise past
Ogden. But the new album has a nice touch of experience and
experimentation, which shocks me some of it isn’t getting radio
play. But don’t take my word for it, head on up as the band holds
their release show at The Lundstorm Center near Utah State (1240 East
1000 North), with NightNight and Desert Noises playing in support.
Just two bucks!!!
For those of you who have never had the
privilege, a live performance from the band last spring at USU in
conjunction with the unique (and sadly defunked) Independent Music
Club. Head out, love music, buy local!
