Hello, thanks for checking out our Patreon!

The Boston Hassle is brought to you by the musicians, artists, writers, and enthusiasts of the Boston area.

Your daily guide, since 2011, focusing on, but not strictly so, the independent & (sub)cultural music / art / film scenes and communities in Greater Boston and New England at large, and the often marginalized cultures that comprise and support them. We foster a community of writers and citizen journalists who uncover vital elements of our city routinely ignored by mainstream media, and allow up-and-coming writers a platform for their work.

Boston Hassle Made a Patreon
Yes yes we did indeed. We sold out, we jumped the shark, we’re now ‘the man’.

Actually no, not if you know anything about culture journalism, we would say just the opposite. It’s a tough world out there in news if you’re not a major corporate news outlet or Michael Bloomberg or some other person with millions and billions of dollars at their disposal.

We certainly do not have that, however sad that may or may not be. We’re local, hard-working journalists, culture enthusiasts Schmoes and Does with no trust funds or authority figures to really tell us what to do or what not to do. Which is a huge upside if you’re talking about the importance of journalism and artistic uniqueness in a society forever flattening due to neoliberalism and oil dependence.

We say no. Bring in the weird, the enigmatic, bring the horn section, the music concrete enthusiasts, the noise heads, the people who dance right in front of the DJ booth trying to really ‘connect’ with the DJ, yeah even them too. Bring in the art galleries crawlers, the independent film community, the many basement venues sparsely scattered around Boston, and so many more folks.

Help Boston Hassle in our mission to amplify the arts and journalism in a city doing everything it can to get rid of the arts and journalism. Support our Patreon today.
