Arts Roundup: Manifesto Edition

Punk Blogging's Not Dead: The writer behind local punk blog DayAfterDayDC explains why the site exists. Reason No. 1: "Why document the scene? To support it; I like to think of myself as a cheerleader for the scene. The main reason I started the site was that no one else was doing it. If you want something done, do it yourself. In D.C., punk-ridden music is almost never afforded any respect by the establishment press (or the alternative press), and I wasn’t familiar with anyone trying to document the contemporary scene on an accessible level, so I opted to." The other reasons, briefly: Wants to serve as resource, needs a creative outlet, recognizes the glory. Rock on.
