Mirror of Disco

A Friendly Voice

Personal experience leads Utah's Alex Boyé to use his celebrity to support an important cause.

While SLC Pride and its big, bright, loud parade and festival get most of the attention, communities like Provo have their very own schedule of festivities.

Longing for Summer

Some much-anticipated highlights for this upcoming concert season.
With summer ready to turn the chartreuse of spring into the darker green of heat-laden leaves and lawns, our writers and editors in the music section here at City Weekly are just as ready to consider what music and events will soundtrack our journeys into summer.

Coming of (All) Ages

Kilby Court celebrates 20 years as a formative live music venue.
The small stage, tucked away in SLC's Granary District, enjoys a lofty reputation belied by its humble appearance.
