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.

Dear GYA, I think it's safe to say that the entire NASCAR community is pissed off at Donovan McNabb for saying I wasn't an athlete. Football players have no idea what it's like to sit for a couple of hours with your hands at 10 and 2 while occasionally applying pressure on the gas pedal. Did I also mention that we don't get to eat any snacks while we drive? No pretzels, no Funyuns, no chipotle ranch Corn Nuts -- nothing!--- Driving a car/sitting on a professional level is exhausting! Anything happening today after I do some extreme sitting? - Jimmie Johnson

Jimmie, I know what you mean. One summer, my dad drove me and my two sisters from Michigan to Maine. He was a true MVP that season. Here's what's up for today:

Rapper R.A. The Rugged Man will be at The Salt Haus this evening. Potluck and Dine Krew are also on the bill. The show stars at 7. Tickets are $18. 

If you're into inspirational Christmas rock, then don't miss The Trans-Siberian Orchestra at Energy Solutions Arena. There are two shows: one at 4, another at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $30. 

Post-hardcore band The Polar Bear Club will be onstage at Kilby Court. Citizen and Diamond Youth are also performing. The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12.
