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: Afroman, Roots and Glass



Dear GYA, I’m sooo sick of Fridays. Lately, people have been coming up to me and saying stuff like “Hey Rebecca, what day is it?” I hate it. I don’t know why, but I feel like this day of the week has lost all meaning. –Rebecca B.---

Rebecca, don’t worry, because tomorrow is Saturday followed by Sunday and so forth. As for today, there’s plenty of partying to be had. If I were you, I would head over to the Art Access Gallery for the Art With A View II exhibit. It features work by local mixed-media artist Amber DeBrink. She uses crushed wine and sake bottles to create elaborate and sustainable sculptures. This is going down all day.

At 7 p.m. tonight, Sugar Space is hosting Hip Hop Roots. It’s a celebration of all things hip-hop featuring live performances from local artists, an open mic, live painting, break dancing and fire spinning. Admission is $10.

Lastly, go check out singer and marijuana enthusiast Afroman at Metro Bar. The Palmdale, Calif., native has been known to bust out his doubl- neck guitar as he sings about his adventures with weed and Colt 45. Whether you’re into the subject matter or not, he puts on a great show. C-Way and Big Alta will be opening.

Other things to do today that are fun, fun, fun, fun:

- Indie rockers Cloud Nothings, Mr. Dream and Laissez Bear at Kilby Court

- Pink Floyd tribute band Floydshow at Fats Grill and Pool

- G.Love and Special Sauce performing at The Depot
