In The Loop: 9/3/16. Dressing Up & Freaking Out | Buzz Blog
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

In The Loop: 9/3/16. Dressing Up & Freaking Out

Awesome events for you to attend from Sept. 4-17


Hello to all you cosplay-wearing, makeup-painting, line-waiting, collectible-buying, can't-get-enough-of-the-convention enthusiasts! If you haven't been looking at Facebook or Twitter this weekend, you wouldn't know that everyone and their mother has been freaking out about what seems to be the most talked-about Salt Lake Comic Con since the thing started back in 2013.
