This is a post to let you know that we just got stocked up with the newest issue of Activator Magazine! This one is for August 2021 – and it is packed with some great content.
As you can see on the cover is local artist Cee Jones – who just released a folk album entitled It’s Okay To Fall From Grace. Then on the bottom portion of the cover there you might be able to see the *exclusive* snippet that is an interview with Laura Jane Grace (of the band Against Me!) about her recent solo album Stay Alive and upcoming performance August 28th right here in our alleyway. What else does this issue got? It’s got “best bets” – which is highlights of upcoming local shows. Also plenty of album reviews and a “regional roundup”. There’s an interview with local singer Lazarus Lubisi who has been active at Intricate Flow Fridays, part 2 of the interview with hip hop professor A.D. Carson, a photospread of Downhome music fest – and even our “Dumb Perspective” column which is a bit of a travelogue of small towns in Illinois.
Activator is available for free and can be picked up at Dumb Records and other various local spots around Central Illinois! You should also check out their patreon page online and consider donating!
