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.

In The Loop: 8/20/16. Donny, You're Out Of Your Element!

Awesome events to check out from Aug. 21 through Sept. 3


Hello to all you coffee-drinking, iTunes playlist-listening, steam-howling, booth-hugging, out-late-getting-with-the-night-owl-crew enthusiasts! Lately, I've been hitting up random coffee shops past 11 p.m. to write stuff, and see what's been going on with the city before half of the downtown crowd make their way back to college. It truly is a shame that SLC, in general, doesn't have "graveyard shift" entertainment, or at least enjoyment, to speak of. The latest anything around here seems to stay open is 3 a.m., unless you feel like guzzling down whatever that junk is at 7-11. I've got two weeks worth of events for you to check out, but first here's some artwork hanging at The Watchtower Cafe that inspired the title of this post.
