We need your help.

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.

All three acts managed to combine an active online push for votes with drawing a crowd to their respective showcases, and the effort paid off. They will all perform this Saturday at The Complex's Vertigo Room, along with DJ Flash n Flare, the winner of this year's CWMA DJ Spinoff.
