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 Sundancers get a look at the life of a stand-up comic and a couple of intriguing documentaries tonight. ---

The highlight of the early evening slot looks to be Sleepwalk With Me, comedian Mike Birbiglia's screen adaptation of his one-man show about his sleep-disorder issues. For more information, check out the CW interview with Birbiglia.

For the late evening, there's veteran documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger's Under African Skies, a look at the story behind Paul Simon's groundbreaking -- and sometimes controversial -- 1986 album Graceland. Also receiving praise from local media is The Imposter, telling the true-life story of a disappeared teenager and the person who returns claiming to be the missing boy.
