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.
Sometimes a song so captures the spirit of a day that it can’t helped but be sung.--- “You spin me right round, baby/ right round like a record, baby,” as sung by Dead or Alive seems the most appropriate today, with the 2nd Annual CWMA DJ Spin Off tonight at the W Lounge and Valentine’s Day right around the corner. Along those lines, follow the previous link for bios of the five contestants and also here's a Valentine’s Gift Guide we wrote last year. Also, it’s voting time for the CWMA bands. To vote go here and then get Dan Nailen’s scoop on How to CWMA.
Before breaking it down to some big beats, record scratching and old classics, consider grabbing a drink and some grub at KRCL’s Night Out—their first Wednesday of the month community happy hour—at Lumpy’s.
If the DJ thing just isn’t your thing (and you really don’t want to break out of your comfort zone) perhaps the jam band stalwarts moe. will help you get your groove on tonight. Otherwise, rest up for this weekend’s CWMA showcases.
