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 Best Bets Nov. 22 - 28


Here are the tunes to complement our live-music selections for the week of Nov. 22. Have a listen.---

As someone who believes strongly in the power of a tightly curated playlist, I must forewarn that this is not that. This jukebox serves as a way to listen to one track from each of City Weekly’s Music Live bands of the week.

This week’s live-music selections range from a singer-songwriter who writes to come to an understanding about his adoption (Ed Romanoff) to one of the sickest MCs of the mid-’00s (Abstract Rude) to several killer local bands (Desert Noises, The Future of the Ghost). It’s time to shake off all that feasting out at a venue, post-Thanksgiving.

Have a listen:
