You may have noticed that the majority of the artists and shows I write about are in the NYC area. Part of the reason is that there's a strong Black rock and Afro-punk community here. But another reason is that, apart from national touring bands, I'm not as familiar with the scenes in other cities. Now, I know Black rock or Black alt stuff is popping off all over the place. But, I'm not as easily able to put my finger on it.
So, here's my request: If you're a band with tour dates, please send them. If you just know of someone I should listen to, please let me know that, too. What I can promise you is that I'll give the suggested artists a spin. If I dig it, I'll figure out what to do as a next step. But the first step is to make sure I know about you and what you're doing. Where to start? See the email addresses to the right under "Useful Email Addresses".
