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

Rocktober Rulez!

The eight indisputable rules of Rocktober, 2016 edition:


Untitled Document 8. Rocktober takes precedence over any Trucktober-related matters.
7. And neither Glocktober nor Woktober are things—knock it off, gun and stir-fry nuts.
6. It’s acceptable to scream “SLAYER!!!” at all social gatherings and events.
5. Certain cultures may substitute “SCRIPTURE!!!” should they feel the spirit.
4. Possession of a vape stick, tribal tattoo or jean shorts with a wallet chain will get you ejected from Rocktober.

3. Possession of all three, however, will help you transition nicely into Douchevember. Or South Salt Lake.
2. Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Lemmy.
1. Celebrate every Rocktober like it’s America’s last. This year, it may be true.
