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

Russell Gordon: Served a mission in Korea.

What was the last concert you saw before you went on your mission?

nn

Hootie and the Blowfish'I don’t want anyone to know that. I only went because I won tickets on the radio. I got to be onstage, too. The guy from Arrested Development opened for them.

nn

Did your musical tastes evolve?

nn

Before I left Utah, I listened to a lot of punk rock'Bad Religion, Fugazi, Agent Orange, the Descendents. When I came home, I listened to a lot of techno because they were really into it in Korea. Even shoe stores would have radios outside with speakers blaring techno music. It didn’t matter what they were selling. It made me want to dance and not be a missionary. It made me want to make out with Korean girls.
