Fall 2017: The New Phone, Who Dis? Issue.


Here is the table of contents from fall 2017 issue:

COVER STORY: Once a young hustler in Southwest Philadelphia, Charlie Mack (above) has helped numerous Philly performers – from Boyz II Men to Meek Mill to Yazz the Greatest – find fame and success. Now, the legendary figure is trying to have an even larger impact on his hometown.

COVER STORY: H.R., the frontman for the legendary punk band Bad Brains, battled severe health issues and then moved to Philadelphia. He’s still performing and spreading the good word. Except his genre is now reggae.

COVER STORY: Anika Pyle, who used to front pop-punk faves Chumped, started a new band, called Katie Ellen. They’ve released their debut album, which Pyle says brings her closer to her personal truth.

COVER STORY: The Dove &The Wolf (below) crafted their EP and forthcoming full-length album in the wake of terror attacks, bizarre world events and personal difficulties. The results are stunning, with harmonies that soothe and music that haunts the soul.

Music & Education: Through Drumhenge, an experiment in acoustic synthesis, a Philly musician and an engineering doctoral student created a new, interactive musical experience.

This Place Rocks: NOTO offers a place to get dressed up and dance to world-class DJs without leaving the city.

Food That Rocks: A bunch of musicians with no experience in the food industry launched Hello Donuts in May and they’re already looking for a storefront.
