If you’re interested in working with us, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We write reviews and feature stories, share videos, premiere music, and more. We often plug shows in the New England/VT/Eastern NY area. We also post Chosen Shows in the Western Mass area and select articles in partnership with Boston Hassle. We cover the world of DIY music, featuring great artists, collectives, etc., who exemplify DIY values, while also helping promote amazing music in our area and beyond.
DIY (and DIT=do it together) is a religion for our editorial staff. We all grew up in a local music scene and we all are are active contributors to one now. Music and the DIY community means a lot to us. We want to celebrate it, share it, and honor it.
