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 Wednesday: Lunch Wars, Race Wars & Fictionist



Here we have some Humpday happenings for your perusing pleasure.---

Author Amy Kalafa was inspired to create the 2007 documentary Two Angry Moms via a desire to expose the deficiencies of public-school lunches. Her new book, Lunch Wars, is a handbook meant to help people fight the good nutritional fight in their own communities. She'll be at The King's English at 7 p.m. for a free chat and signing.

Amy Lavere and Star Anna & the Laughing Dogs share a bill Wednesday at The State Room, delivering a dose of tasty Americana to SLC on Wednesday night. At Kilby Court, MC Chris showcases his witty rhyming skills via a performance of his new themed album Race Wars, which he describes as “a post-apocalyptic car movie in the same vein as the Mad Max trilogy.”

Down in Provo, Fictionist (pictured) celebrates their signing to Atlantic Records with a hometown show, accompanied by Paul Jacobsen & The Madison Arm.
