You be the music critic | 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, 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

You be the music critic


When you were a kid, did you always want to be: a) a firefighter, b) a Wall Street all-star, c) a music critic, or d) other? Well, it’s never to late to dream. Here’s your chance to wear the music-critic hat, if for only one night.---

We’re trying something a little different for this week’s Twilight Concert Series show, featuring Ghostland Observatory and Phantogram: We are asking you, the reader, you, the music knowledge hoarder, you, the concert rocker-outer, to give us your musings, critiques and photos of the show via Tweet.

Using Storify, we will aggregate opinions far and wide—from the nearly 40,000 who will be in attendance and those elsewhere—for the review, to be posted Friday morning. Storify essentially allows a user to pull Tweets together by searching for keywords to tell a story and add comments intermittently. Some say technology like this will be pivotal in the evolution of journalism. Whatever our personal and professional opinions may be, at a minimum, it seems like an interesting way to review a rock concert that will be full of dancey tunes and pretty lights.

So give us your Tweets and tag them with #twilightconcerts, #ghostland and/or #CWreview.
