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.

Awesome suggested events for November 1-14


Hello to all you makeup-wearing, costume-fitting, monster-mashing, celebrity-pandering, blood-creating, bag-holding, candy-stealing, egg-tossing, last-chance-for-some-pure-fun enthusiasts! Well, it is Halloween as you read this today, and as you're preparing to do your own activity, I'm preparing to get drunk. Being a snarky writer (still living the greatest years of my young-hot-life) with no kids, no formal doorstep for doorbell ringing, and no expectation of extravagant costume to dress up in, I get to have fun doing whatever the hell I feel like. Which most likely will involve running to a bunch of parties and saying I'm the employee from 5 Nights At Freddy's, as I listen to badass music and drink 14 versions of pumpkin beer. I'm sure candy and toilet-paper-throwing will be in there somewhere, and, of course mourning all the lives who had to participate in Trunk-Or-Treat, those poor souls.


So before you, I and the rest of the state go off and take part in whatever mischief the night brings us, below are some suggested plans for the next two weeks. Please take great care in looking at the selection, as we start winding into much colder months ahead and everything starts looking a lot more red and green long before it should. We'll be back with the blog on Monday with a fresh set of interviews from the local entertainment scene. As always; we'll see what happens!
