Lounge Act Weekend: Enviro Jams, Chaos and Fashion | Buzz Blog
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: Enviro Jams, Chaos and Fashion



A bevy of options for your weekend. Let's do this.  ---


Friday features the distinctly Euro-tunes of Junip, pictured, headlining at The State Room. Singer Jose Gonzalez is a true gem. Down the street at Bar Deluxe, Fake Problems headline a fat bill of poppy punk bands.

Wiseguys in West Valley City features Garfunkel & Oates, a comedy duo featuring the gal who played Ted's gal on Scrubs, so I'm totally on board. They're doing two shows Friday night.

If you're totally jonesing for Halloween, the Castle of Chaos is hosting its Spring Scream Weekends starting Friday night.

At Pioneer Memorial Theater at the U, Sunset Boulevard opens its spring run Friday night.


The 2011 Spring Fashion Affair is Saturday at Elevate, and you can find the City Weekly Street Team on hand to get the party started. Fashionable, of course. And across town at the Million Air Hanger, the Couture in Motion show adds another dose of style to Saturday night.

Earth Jam features free tunes, kids activities and enviro-info booths at Liberty Park all day Saturday and Sunday at Liberty Park.

The State Room hosts the Jeff Bates Melanoma Fundraiser on Saturday, and everyone you know in the outdoor industry will be there, partying for a great cause to the sounds of Afro Omega, among others.


Christina Perri does her tormented piano player/singer thing at the Avalon Theater Sunday night. The always awesome Jonathan Richman headlines at Kilby Court.

The City Weekly Street Team will be at the Craft Sabbath Mother's Day boutique Sunday, a perfect spot to get your mama some treats for the fast-approaching holiday.
