In The Loop: 1/21/17. Gloom Other Than Smog | 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: 1/21/17. Gloom Other Than Smog

Events for you to check out from Jan. 22 through Feb. 4.


Hey, everybody! Let's be honest: You're either reading this blog in between moments at a film festival, or as some sort of escape from yesterday's nonsense. And that's perfectly okay, because sometimes in life we need a break from tragedy and despair. Or we just need to immerse ourselves in complete distractions to find some happiness again. I myself will probably be asleep when you read this, as I'm taking this weekend for myself to recharge a lot of batteries. But in the meantime, I've got two weeks of events for you to go check out while you look at this picture of Princess Leia created by local artist Charlie Brown.
