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.

Working/Spazzing for the weekend


1 comment

On any given Saturday night when you walk into Liquid Joe’s (1249 E. 3300 South), Loverboy’s “Working For the Weekend” will more than likely be stuck in your head—not just because you love ’80s music and you’re pumped that you’re not at work, but because The Spazmatics are onstage. If you haven’t peeped this ’80s cover band, then you’re blowin’ it. Their shtick is simple: Dress up like nerds, crack some jokes and then slay the soundtrack to The Wedding Singer. Seriously, I haven’t seen this many people getting down to ’80s music since … well, the ’80s. With a nice sound system, hookah service and cheap drinks like $5 Long Islands and AMFs (Adios Motherf—kers), this Millcreek dance club will definitely make everybody Wang Chung.
