State Room "Poster Project" Fundraiser | 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

State Room "Poster Project" Fundraiser


Like live music shows themselves—where the simple act of ambling into a venue, paying for a beer or two and standing around with friends used to seem mundane—the simple fact of a good show poster also seems dear and nostalgic right now. The State Room, in their attempts to keep some kind cash flow coming to their business, has gotten creative with an auction of old show posters, dubbed The Poster Project. Kicking off today, May 11—like, as you’re reading this— the project will run first through today, and then officially once more on May 20 and and 27, with more dates possibly announced.

There are dozens of old show posters posted up on their new site, where all posters start at the low bid of $15, with many—signed posters by Ani DiFranco and Rusted Roots, for example—already having soared well over $100. As stated on their site, as the project goes on they hope to offer more memorabilia and merch for fans and collectors to look forward to. Besides already seeming like a very lucrative project for The State Room, it also just feels like a fun fundraiser that could happen during normal days, and that’s valuable on its own.
