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 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. DONATE

Lounge Act Weekend: Soul, sports and tall tales



All the headlines this weekend will be about the Utah football team and the Real Sandy, er, Real Salt Lake playoff game, but there's plenty going on for the artistically and musically inclined.---

Friday night, for example, you can't beat the soul sounds of Mayer Hawthorne, who is headlining a gig at The Urban Lounge. And over at The Woodshed, Boston pop-rock duo Aloud headline a show that also includes local faves Bronco and La Farsa.

The Salt Lake Art Center has a new show open to the public, Honeymoon, and the City Weekly Street Team will be setting up shop at Quantum UltraLounge.

On Saturday, you can experience The Canterbury Tales like you never have before, acted out in front of you while you grub on food of the era. The Kimball Art Center is hosting a show featuring early works of Ansel Adams, while the Doomtree Collective headlines shows at both Kilby Court and The Urban Lounge; read our profile of the crew right here.

Sunday, the City Weekly Street Team will be kicking it at Craft Sabbath, and later on, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin headlines a gig at Kilby Court, while Slowtrain hosts a CD release party for Band of Annuals offshoot The American Shakes (pictured).
