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.

True Blood: Naked on Your Newsstand



The Sept. 2 issue of Rolling Stone will feature True Blood stars Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer naked and covered in blood. How much do you want to bet that you'll have a hell of a time finding a copy in Utah? ---

Among other True Blood coverage in the issue--which is almost guaranteed to be absent from every supermarket and genteel magazine shop in Zion--there's an interview with showrunner Alan Ball, who delivers this matter-of-fact swipe at the Twilight franchise: "To me, vampires are sex ... I don't get a vampire story about abstinence. I'm 53. I don't care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed."

Sounds like a great read--good luck finding the issue somewhere, anywhere tomorrow, True Blood fans. If you actually do, please let us know.
