Glad You Asked: Geeks, Korn & Algae | 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, 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

Glad You Asked: Geeks, Korn & Algae



Not sure what to do on a day like this? Well, you’re in the right spot. Glad You Asked is City Weekly’s daily, advice-dispensing, know-it-all events blog. It’s like Dear Abby, if she ever left her house and advised you to go somewhere other than counseling. ---We fear no level of boredom. Got a question about what to do today? Well, we're glad you asked...

Dear GYA; I’m at home right now on I’ve decided I need to step away from the Internet for the rest of the day. What can I do that doesn’t involve me changing out of these sweatpants? -Ronald, Westminster College senior.

Ronald, there’s nothing you can’t do in sweatpants … except get jobs, of any form. Other than that, I think you’re good. I suggest checking out the Holotype exhibit at the Leonardo (209 E. 500 South, Salt Lake City). It’s a massive installment all about the wonders of algae and it’s going on all day today. It's a well-known fact that there's no dress code for algae.

Plus, later tonight you should check out Geeks Who Drink over at Maggie McGee’s (6243 S. Highland Drive, Holladay). It’s a free-to-enter trivia competition coupled with beer. You'll love it because there will be tons of Internet nerds in attendance. These questions are tough, so try to stay relatively sober.

But if you really want to fit in without changing your clothes, you should go see Korn at the Complex (536 W. 100 South, Salt Lake City). Kill The Noise will be opening for the metal/dubstep crew, and tickets are $38 bucks at the door. On top of that, frontman Jonathan Davis will be performing a DJ set as his alter ego, J. Devil. Should be interesting, to say the least.

Other happenings today that may just tickle your fancy:

-Free screenings of Justified and American Horror Story @ Brewvies

-Dub reggae group SOJA @The Depot

-New York Times cartoonist, Carl Richards exhibit @The Kimball Art Center
