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.

Find yourself with a hole in your social calendar Saturday night? Find religion with a free show by roots-rocker Chuck Prophet.---

For the unfamiliar, Chuck Prophet was a teenage wunderkind who found himself joining seminal San Francisco country-rock crew Green on Red when he was still a teenager, playing with the band for eight years and writing tunes for eight albums. The non-stop touring across the states and Europe turned him into a road warrior, and also led to him becoming an addict, first of heroin, then of crack, before he came out the other side as a cleaned-up solo artist.

He remains a prolific writer and producer; he's a veteran of projects with Warren Zevon, Lucinda Williams and Aimee Mann, and he co-wrote the recent Alejandro Escovedo gems Street Songs of Love and Real Animal. Now he's touring in support of his own, excellent Let Freedom Ring! set, including a free gig Saturday at The Canyons at 6 p.m.
