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: Filligar, John Prine and Big Band



Dear GYA, There's been a lot of discussion on whether or not we should continue to have horse-drawn carriages in downtown Salt Lake City, and I want you to know that all of us on the City Council are concerned with finding a fair solution. In fact, I had an idea  that might just solve this dilemma: We'll glue a bunch of stray cats together to look like a horse--- and we'll have them pull our carriages around! Boom, that's called problem solving. Anything happening today where I could take a leisurely cat carriage?- Jay Moreletti, Salt Lake City Council member

Jay, That's a perfect idea. You should also consider building some green bikes that look like horses, or just employing some local furries to pull our carriages. Either way, I don't want to step on your toes. Here's what's up for today:

Chicago-based indie-folk-rock band Filligar will be onstage at Kilby Court this evening. Torches and the 2:13's will warm things up. The show starts at 8. Tickets are $8.

Country-folk singer John Prine will be at Red Butte this evening. Johnnyswim is also on the bill. The show starts at 7:30. Tickets start at $35.  

The Gallivan Center will be hosting 19-piece big band the Wasatch Jazz Project tonight at 7:30. Admission is free for this all-ages show!
