Lounge Act Thursday: Free tunes, free flicks and free TV | 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 Thursday: Free tunes, free flicks and free TV



A bevy of options for your consideration on Thursday night.---

It's the second Twilight Concert Series show of the year, of course, and it might turn out to be the biggest of the year, too, thanks to the presence of headliner The Decemberists, whose latest album, The King is Dead, debuted at No. 1 earlier this year. Be sure to get to Pioneer Park on time to catch opener Typhoon (pictured), another hot Portland band. Read our story about Typhoon, then scurry down to the park by 7 p.m.

The King's English is hosting author David Roberts, who wrote Finding Everett Ruess about his own efforts to find the lost explorer in the wildlands around Escalante back in the '30s.

Gardens & Villa and The Generationals are playing Kilby Court Thursday night, while Brewvies is hosting a free screening of the original Jaws—always a treat. And you can find the City Weekly Street Team at Brewvies, too, for free viewings of Wilfred and Louie.
