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.

Local Releases: Shrugging Off The Breezeway

Brand new music from Breezeway, Nico, Shrugboat and more.


This weekend looked super promising for local release shows, but three cancellations whittled the field down to just one.  We'll be discussing that single show at the bottom of this post, but for now, we have brand-new local albums for you to check out that were digitally released this week. Give those a listen and then join me at the end.

On Saturday, June 11, we'll see the latest release from Breezeway,  an SLC rock trio who mainly jam on the heavier side of indie. The band have been around for a good three years, and have had great gigs; it's really awesome to see a three-piece band just jam as they are without gimmicks or cheats. The band will be releasing their latest EP, It Goes Like This, on June 11 at Muse Music, with Red Yeti and Barsie opening. Tickets are just $7 and the doors open at 8 p.m.


Love music, head out, buy local!
