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 Monday: Salty Crickets and Community Co-ops



And so begins a pretty sleepy week leading up to Christmas—perfect for recovering from a hard weekend.---

Downtown was pretty much a clusterfuck all weekend, thanks to the convergence of a couple of David Archuleta concerts with the Mo Tab Choir at Temple Square, a bigger-than-ever Santa Pub Crawl on Friday night and all the usual holiday shenanigans: Xmas lights, skating at Gallivan Center, etc.

Tonight a couple of musical options for ya. If you're classically inclined, join the Salty Cricket Composers Collective for their last show of 2010, Green Cello, at 7:30 p.m. at the Rose Wagner. Over at Mo's Neighborhood Grill around 9 p.m., it's the second Salt Lake Sound-off, in which local singer/songwriters compete for the audience's love in short, one-song battles.

And if you're still in shopping mode, or know a family that could use an extra boost this season, check out the Community Food Co-op Market Sale, which includes all sorts of goodies, as well as the chance to buy gift certificates for others to use at the co-op any time they need to. True spirit-of-the-season stuff there.
