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

Music Best Bets Nov. 29 - Dec. 5


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 the most (surf) rockin’ fundraiser of the year (KRCL Polar Jubilee) to the biggest thing to ever come out of BYU -- not Steve Young, but Brandon Flowers -- (The Killers) and poppy Christmas music (Mindy Gledhill) to thumpin’ hip-hop Christmas music (The Grouch). Stay warm and get inside this week.

Have a listen:
