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: Crazy For You, Punk and Aviaries



Dear GYA, Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules? If you step over the line, then you mark it zero. Sure, it's bowling, but we're talking about a league game, man. It determines who goes into the next round robin. Am I wrong? --- I swear, if Smokey pulls this crap again, he's gonna enter a world of pain. Anything else to do tonight? - Walter Sobchak 

Walter, you can't pull out your gun every time you get upset; it's just a game, man. Here are a few things to do tonight besides bowling: 

Check out the musical Crazy for You at Hale Center Theatre in Orem. Set to the tunes of George and Ira Gershwin, this tale of big-city boy meets small-town girl won the 1992 Tony Award for Best Musical and the New York Times called it "rightously entertaining." Evening shows are at  7:30 p.m., matinees are at 3 p.m. Tickets range from $16 - $20. 

Head to In The Venue/Club Sound to see the alternative rock band Motion City Soundtrack.  Often described as emo-punk, theirs is a poppy take on punk and rock. The Henry Clay People are also on the bill. Tickets are $22 and the doors open at 7:30 p.m. 

The good folks over at the Tracy Aviary are offering a special summer deal for all you fans of the avian persuasion. Every Monday, patrons can enjoy the economical price of $5 admission after 5 p.m. This is a great place to take your kids because it's educational stuff ridiculously masked as fun.  

Other worthwhile events happening today: 

- Michael Whiting's exhibit 8-Bit Art will be presented at the BYU Museum of Art all day today. 

- Every Monday at noon, check out the free Lunch Box Concert Series at the Gallivan Center.   

- Fiddler on the Roof will be at the Terrace Plaza Playhouse, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
