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

Dear GYA, It's sooo stupid that I'm not allowed to tryout for cheerleading this year because I have more than 18 unexcused absences! Gosh, principal Peterschmidt is such an ass. He doesn't understand that 18 days is only. like, what--a week or something? It's not even that many days. Ugh, since I'm probably not going to class today, anything good happening?  Micha Blossom, Senior---

Micha, No one should have to learn about consequences at the tender age of 17. As we all know, high school is supposed to prepare you for the real world, not bog you down with silly rules and repercussions. Well, here are some options for your well-deserved day-off:

Americana indie-band Deer Tick will be at Urban Lounge this evening. Max Pain & the Groovies will be opening up. Tickets are $20 at the door. The show starts at 9.  

At The Shred Shed, metal bands (to say the least) Author and Punisher, Cicadas and Worst Friends will be performing. The show starts at 9 p.m. 

Singer-songwriter Andrew McMahon (formerly of Jack's Mannequin & Something Corporate) will be onstage at In The Venue this evening. Tickets are $28 day of. The show starts at 8.
