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: Dance, rock & a little hocus pocus



It's your last Hump Day before Halloween. Might as well get out of the house and scare up some fun. Here's how.---

Ballet West's production of Dracula continues its run at the Capitol Theatre—a fine way to combine some fine arts with the holiday season. Hell, wear some fangs just for fun.

The City Weekly Street Team will be hosting a free screening at Brewvies. The film du jour? Try Hocus Pocus, another worthy Halloween-time treat. It starts at 8 p.m., but you'll want to get there early for a good seat.

Down Provo way, catch the indie-poppers John Heart Jackie at Velour (pictured) for a fine night of tunes. Here in SLC, Burt's Tiki Lounge plays host to Mr. Gnome, Zyux, Finn Riggins and South of Ramona Wednesday night, starting around 9 p.m.

And there's bound to be a few of you out there who watch the So You Think You Can Dance show. Now is your chance to see some of the newly minted "stars" from the show do their thing in person, out at the Maverik Center.

The coolest event of the year could be out in West Valley City at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center. All day long, you can go check out the center's Day of the Dead Altar, and it's pretty amazing in the photos I've seen.
