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: Roots, rock, reggae & murder



Tuesday features some great authors, tunes and assorted other activities to sate your entertainment itch.---

This is sure to be a great show: Over The Rhine (pictured) is a husband-and-wife team that creates some stunning roots music. Their latest album, The Long Surrender, offers more ample evidence that Over The Rhine is a band to keep an eye on, no matter what they do or how much time they spend between albums. 

If you're in the mood for something a little more rocking, Pepper is headlining a gig at In The Venue, and the Uproar Festival featuring Avenged Sevenfold and a slew of other young rock acts is at Usana Amphitheater Tuesday night. Ziggy Marley brings a fine ear for the reggae made by his father, and his own deep catalog, to The Depot. 

You might know ace violinist Gerald Elias as a music prof at the U or as a member of the Utah Symphony, but he's also an accomplished author who now boasts three mysteries on his resume. His series features a blind, misanthropic musician named Daniel Jacobus, and his latest adventure is titled Death and the Maiden. Elias will read from and sign the book at The King's English Tuesday at 7 p.m.
