Music at Main Lineup Announced | 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.

Music at Main Lineup Announced


The library is a source for discovery, information and growth. And that’s not just with books. Get schooled this summer in a little subject called local music.---

Similar to the music at the weekly Saturday Downtown Farmers Market, the Music at Main Series is a killer spot to catch up-and-coming talent. This is where, over the past few years, I’ve first caught a few of my current favorite local acts -- Matteo and Folka Dots, among others.

The folks at The City Library do a mighty-fine job booking talent, which is currently done by librarian Stephanie Costa, and formerly done for three years by Andrew Shaw, senior creative producer of The City Library. This year is no different. I’m looking forward to checking out a few bands I’ve never seen, like Bright Whistles, Color Animal and Four Leaves Left, while also catching up again with some stalwarts of the local scene, like Theta Naught, The Suicycles, Tolchock Trio and Birthquake (pictured above).

The free shows are Tuesdays, beginning at 7 p.m. at the City Library Amphitheater.
