Howdy y'all! BCN is back on the streets with a brand new July issue featuring art by Caroline Dunlap @cx_dunlap guaranteed to lift your spirits out of these dreaded heat waves! I heard rumors Caroline has awesome stickers, paintings and other work for sale down at the DAP store! Why not go take a look and add a splash of color and joy to your crib? Inside the new issue you'll find 'Dirty Water', Micah Epstein's sci-fi revisionist fiction stories, coming back for another round and Neil Horsky introducing a new column, 'Trifecta Tours', which will give you an excuse to get out your room and explore a new part of the city!
Before you're done reading each and every inch be sure to take our new and improved readership survey on the back page so we can learn how to better support this lovely community! OH! One more thing...our street boxes are getting a facelift and won't be on the street until early-mid July. If you'd like to grab this new issue you have three options: the box at Stony Brook T Stop, the box at 95 Faneuil St, Brighton or head down to the DAP Store! Peace! Happy reading!
Tiny DAP Concerts presents...
We are so excited for our newest program: The Tiny DAP Concerts!
As more eyes fall on New England Hip Hop, Tiny DAP aims to boost the signal of Boston’s hardest working hidden gems with an intimate, virtual showcase inspired by NPR's “Tiny Desk Concert” -- with all its national importance, but with a focus on what makes our city unique.
This web series (produced by Boston Compass Newspaper and Smokehouse Media) will offer professionally produced, pre-recorded performances highlighting emerging talent from Greater Boston artists who are at the top of their class in New England Hip Hop. Season 1 features five artists from the DAP Open Mic community and is funded by The Boston Foundation's Live Arts Boston Grant. Episodes will be dropping on the following schedule!
