Whoops, we almost forgot to make a post saying that we have the new November issue of Activator Magazine! How fun! We also even have plenty of back issues – from previous months of October and September!
This month’s cover features Springfield veteran synth-pop rocker Ricki Marvel on the cover. Activator interviewed Ricki about an upcoming EP she has been working on, her experience playing the Laura Jane Grace show here in town, and more. Also interviewed in this issue is Champaign IL’s Long Birds, Bad Bad Hats from Minneapolis, local hip hop artist Composition C, Chase Baby from Champaign, and also features a “soundcheck” section checking in with other local musicians. In addition to that there are live music calendars, photo spreads, and music reviews. No “Dumb Perspective” column this issue, sorry.
You can pick up copies of Activator here for free and other local businesses around Central Illinois. Be sure to also check out and consider donating to their Patreon page. Activator is also currently accepting submissions for their art issue (to be released in December) now through November 20th!
