It’s now been two years, over 600 original features, playlists, interviews, reviews and photo galleries (& counting), untold gigs & shutter clicks, great conversations in crowds and meeting fellow music lovers around the world, a dizzying number of music festivals on two continents, over 30 playlists hundreds of new band discoveries & introductions and even many film reviews for when we are sitting still and not at gigs. We’ve found that it’s very true, that you get what you give, and participation and interest means everything, that you can affect positive change by getting involved. It’s been a dizzying adventure of community building and great music that we are happy to be expanding, and to share our evolution with you.
Our magazine was created by two music & film lovers, a writer and a photographer, who wanted to create something unique, substantial, sincere, and authentic. So many of our finest bands from the 80s, & 90s are still going, back on the road, celebrating important anniversaries. The great indie & emerging bands we’ve discovered and met and seen live give us such hope, and teach us new sounds.
And as an unexpected feature of this adventure, we’ve made friends and learned from so many artists across the spectrum and at all levels of the music world.
Thank you all for your work in music, especially the difficult commitment to play it and tour it live today. We buy the T-Shirts & the music and we celebrate you all.
