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 PressBackers.com, 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

The Depot Savings Nightlife Image

Not so much a club as a first-class concert venue that happens to have a couple of bars, The Depot is Utah’s singular answer to the House of Blues chain. The four-story wonder has hosted everyone from Chris Isaak and Clutch to M.I.A. and the Wu-Tang Clan, and never had an off night for sound and presentation. Some touring rock bands have even been noted as observing, “This place seems a little too nice for us.” Depot patrons are as varied in age and attitude as arena concert-goers; the 1,200-capacity, state-of-the-art club only opens for shows and reserved special events, so there’s really no such thing as a Depot regular.
