Mixtape Magazine Launch Party

posted by Mixtape Magazine on Thursday September 26

After a lengthy crowdfunding campaign and the publication of a teaser festival guide this past summer, Mixtape Magazine is pleased to celebrate the launch of their first, full-length issue with a unique event Friday, October 4 at The Carleton Music Bar & Grill in Halifax.


The launch will feature performances by Babette Hayward, Magnolia, DJ Jay McNeil and members of In-Flight Safety. In addition to live performances, Mixtape's editors will be hosting a Q&A with the artists between sets. Tickets are $8.00 online through The Carleton's website (http://tickets.thecarleton.ca/menubox-iframe/) or $12.00 at the door and include a free copy of the first issue.


The first issue of Mixtape Magazine features P.E.I.'s Paper Lions on a romp through their hometown as they reflect on their past, present and future. We also take the Polaris prize apart, giving our thoughts on those who didn't make the final cut and taking a closer look at those who did. Detailed album reviews, suggested playlists and interviews with Whitehorse, Shad, and Metric's Emily Haines all combine to give the reader over 50 pages of personal, insightful and thoughtful reporting on Canada's best new and emerging musicians.


Mixtape was started by a small group of music bloggers and journalists in Halifax, NS who wanted to showcase artists with the same passion they put into their music. The team has since grown to include writers, illustrators, designers and photographers from across the country. This launch is just the first of many events they’ve got planned. Why not join them for their first big show?
