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: Two out of three, for free


Cellos and kazoos and accordions: Oh, my.---

The kazoo-playing duo out of Minnesota, Bella Ruse lands at Piper Down tonight for a free show. To learn how they procure veggie oil from Chinese restaurants for their tour bus and why the kazoo rules, read this interview with frontwoman Kay Gillette. The show starts at 8:30 p.m.

If you’ve ever wondered what is more exciting, a woman playing the kazoo or two women playing accordions, tonight is the night to find out. Just north, up State Street, Accordion Babes play at Burt’s. The duo of Renee De La Prade and Amber Lee Baker play a sweet, albeit rough-around-the-edges, buskar-esque style of tunes worth checking out. To top it off, they call themselves the sexy sirens of the squeezebox--’nuff said.

For something outdoorsy and more symphonic, dig on the Utah Symphony as they perform patriotic songs and other crowd-pleasing compositions to kick off this year’s WorldStage! outdoor concert series at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center.
