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.

Glad You Asked: The xx, Curse of The Werewolf and Simpsons Trivi



Dear GYA, I'm really bummed NBC canceled Dane Cook's new show Next Caller before it even aired. I was looking forward to a sitcom centered around Cook yelling for no reason for a half hour. Anyway, the 2003 version of myself is extremely disappointed.--- Anything happening tonight to fill this void in my life? - Tyler Brometer, Midvale

Tyler, You don't have to look to Dane Cook for pointless yelling. Have you ever seen anything with Gilbert Gottfried? Here are a few things going down tonight that will cheer you up:

English indie-pop band The xx will be at The Complex.  Known for their breakout self-titled album in 2009, The xx's newest effort, Coexist, is proving to be just as solid. Josh Talabot and 2:54 are also on the bill. The doors open at 8 p.m. 

As part of the weekly Horror Cinema Tuesday's series, Weber County Main Library will be showing a free screening of the 1961 cult-classic film The Curse of The Werewolf.  It's the age-old story of a mans' love affair with his wolf costume. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. 

Maggie McGee's will be hosting the 3rd Annual Treehouse of Horror: All Simpsons Trivia Contest. OK, finish this sentence: No beer and no TV makes Homer something something. If you said, "Go crazy" then you should sign up for this quiz because they're giving away a cash purse of $200-$500 (depending on how many sign up). The quizzin' starts at 8 p.m. 

A few other worthwhile events:

- True TV and Brewvies are offering up a free screening of the latest Sons of Anarchy episode tonight at 8 p.m.  

- For some serious rock action, checkout Witch Mountain at Bar Deluxe, starting at 9 p.m. 

- Meet some real witches at the Crone Hollow: October is Time For Witches lecture tonight at 6:30 p.m.
