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

Local folk singer featured on Daytrotter today


Local singer-songwriter David Williams lands his song “Sunday Morning” on the indie-music-focused Website Daytrotter.com with the featured video of the day today.

The video was recorded at the Huichica Music Festival (other notable acts at the festival were J. Mascis, Richard Swift, Fruit Bats, among others). Williams’ entire performance is also available to watch or download. The video and sound quality is suprisingly high quality, and, of course, “Sunday Morning” is a lovely little number unto itself. Williams says that rain forced the gig indoors to the makeshift stage; but I think that just adds to the ambiance and the overall stripped-down aesthetic that Williams produces. Unfortunately, embedding is not an option, so dig the video here.

The tour to and from this festival is the focus of a documentary film, Intro, directed by Brandon Cahoon (trailer below), to be released later this year. The film was nominated for Best International Documentary in the Torino Film Festival and screened December 2011; a synopsis and more information can be found here. Williams also recently scored his first film, The Parade; read an interview with City Weekly here.
