Glad You Asked: Andy Frasco, Mars and Cevan LeSieur | 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: Andy Frasco, Mars and Cevan LeSieur



Dear GYA, Yo, I just heard the news about the new iPhone 5 and I couldn't be happier. I love how it's all light and ish. I mean, shoot, the iPhone 4 was weighing me down in the club, son. I can't be expected to get my swag on with a heavy-ass 4-ounce anvil in my pocket. Now that I can finally swerve unrestricted, anything good tonight?  - Chauncey Swift, West Valley--- 

Chauncey, I know, right? I refuse to carry anything unless it's under 4 oz. Here's what's up today:

The funky maestro Andy Frasco will be onstage at Hog Wallow Pub this evening. The fro-rocking musician recently opened for Joe Walsh at the Gallivan Center and has since had a relentless touring year. The show starts at 9:30 p.m.  

Clark Planetarium will be hosting Night School: Why Mars Matters. University of Utah geologist Majorie Chan will be on hand, explaining the similarities of Southern Utah geology and the surface of the red planet. The lecture starts at 7 p.m. 

Local author Cevan LeSieur will be on hand at The King's English Bookshop. LeSieur will be discussing and signing his new book, The Avenues, which looks at Salt Lake City's oldest and most historic neighborhoods -- the Avenues district. The signing starts at 7 p.m.

Other worthwhile events happening today:

- The Stuff This Bus school-supply fundraiser will be going down at The Gateway today at 11 a.m. 

- The Utah Botanical Center Farmers Market will be starting up at 5 p.m.
