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

Feedback from April 16 and Beyond



Has your small business benefited from the SBA's PaycheckProtection Program?

No. My Economic Injury Loan Disaster (EILD) application was submitted and received but no news. Have spoken to someone each day. They say just watch your account ... no info.

I feel like they are teens and ghosting us means "no." Better luck next time for us, I guess.

Me, neither. I had a friend in California do the $10K version of the EILD. They asked for $10,000—got $1,000.

Haven't heard anything back about my EILD, either, but then Wyoming just got declared a disaster area last Saturday.

Wyoming, I can understand (no $1,200, either). We are always treated as a forgotten stepchild. Salt Lake (known for being highly self-sufficient) has a solid economy when many others are in the hole.

That and the fact that The Salt Lake Tribune and other newspapers and their followers (a lot of restaurant people) constantly bash President Trump puts us both at the bottom of the list.

Apparently to all you liberal Democratic supporters, your leaders really don't give a shit about you after all.

Hope you remember that in November.

Event center ... nothing so far. Applied to five.

Video from Randy's Records posted on City Weekly's social media

Randy's Records is the best. Have to come over and talk about Paul McCartney's Ram (bought at Randy's)—what an excellent record! I've played it 20 times during the quarantine.
