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 Tuesday: Active Child, Colin Hay and author chats



A smattering of awesome options are presented for your entertainment pleasure this fine Tuesday.---

Active Child is currently touring in support of their self-titled album, and lead singer Pat Grossi has a voice that is perfect for some synth-laden modern R&B as well as the indie-pop that most know the band for; check out Active Child Tuesday at the Urban Lounge along with Chad Valley and Night Sweats.

Over at The State Room, one of my old faves from the '80s returns in the form of Colin Hay (pictured), former frontman of Men at Work and now a pretty-well-regarded singer/songwriter. You might have caught some of his newer tunes on Scrubs; Zach Braff is a big fan. But you can be sure he won't skip the tunes that made him famous in the first place, like "Overkill" and "Who Can It Be Now?"

Author James Reeves will be signing copies of The Road to Somewhere: An American Memoir at 7 p.m. at The King's English. The book captures a five-year, 40,000-mile journey across the States. Meanwhile, Ken Sanders Rare Books is hosting author Philip Fradkin, who wrote Everett Ruess: His Short Live, Mysterious Death and Astonishing Afterlife. It's free and starts at 7 p.m., as well.

And if classical music is your bag, look into the Wind Ensemble Fall Concert Tuesday at Libby Gardner Hall on the U campus; it starts at 7:30 p.m., and for just $7 it's a cheap date.
