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

Catching up with CWMA bands: Grey Fiction, YYBS


Sure, The Young & The Restless was a great soap opera (did I just admit that?!), but it also aptly describes these two young bands.---

I’ve asked each of the 24 bands from the 2012 City Weekly Music Awards to send us a paragraph or so about what they have going on in 2012. Here, we check in with Grey Fiction and the Young Yet Brilliant Sleuths.

Grey Fiction:
"After a small California tour and gigging around the valley, Grey Fiction is excited to announce that we will begin recording our first album with Scott Wiley at June Audio mid-June of this year. We continue to grow and evolve in our songwriting and live performance, and look forward to unfold this progress in the upcoming album. Look out for a project on Kickstarter in the coming months to help fund and complete the freshman album. You can get involved now by following this band of brothers on Facebook and Twitter. We give tremendous thanks to our friends and fans for the infinite patience and support, and look forward to what this year has in store."

Tracks from the Light the Sea EP



"We will have a split EP with Guides and Braves coming out soon. We also just finished recording a live session with Spy Hop Productions and will be releasing videos and tracks from that in about a month. We are hoping to go on tour again in July."
