Spring 2016: The Scene is Dead!


Here is the table of contents from spring 2016 issue:

JUMPSpring2016GrandeCoverOnlineCOVER STORY: Queen of Jeans (above) has only been around for about a year but their debut album has found them a world of fans and UK distribution.

COVER STORY: Grande Marshall (right) had dreams of a career in advertising. He bounced around a bit and wound up back in North Philly. Things got a little rough. But once he started recording music and people started listening, everything fell into place.

COVER STORY: The Internet broke all the rules in the music business. Artists can now reach fans directly. Music-lovers have control over what they hear. But is it working

COVER STORY: Larry Magid is the person who made Philadelphia the music city we know today.

Music & Politics: City Councilman Mark Squilla faced a social media shitstorm when he tried to pass some legislation that impacted the music scene earlier this year. We talked to him about the bill (and his respect for music).

Music & Education: Cosmo Baker brought the Scratch DJ Academy to his hometown. Beyond the Bars gives at-risk youth hands-on training in music, and hope for the future. The Evening Reporting Center provides an alternative to juvenile detention, putting young people in front of music equipment during peak crime hours.

This Place Rocks: Headroom Studios gives young bands a chance to record with expert engineers in a professional setting. And we visited the locations of some of Philly’s recently shuttered music venues.

Food That Rocks: The Sanctuary at Saint Lazarus offers “soul food meets Mexican” in a place you can dance your ass off.

Publisher’s Note: Joe Reinhart is the nicest arch enemy you could have.
