Lounge Act Thursday: The Pope of Trash tops tonight's doings | 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

Few people are more fun to listen to them talk than director/provocateur John Waters, and his appearance in Salt Lake City tonight is just one worthy happening for your consideration.---

Waters, the director of such cult classics as Pink Flamingos, Polyester and the surprise hit Hairspray, brings his speaking tour to the Rose Wagner Thursday night for what is sure to be at least 90 minutes of non-stop laughs, thanks to a bag of stories from his years as a filmmaker and writer.  You can read our interview with John Waters right here, then get one of the few remaining tickets for the show, ASAP! The show is at 7:30 p.m.
