We love these two collectively! There is nothing we like more than connecting with music and art enthusiasts of all ages. It allows us to view the DIY/ punk/ underground continuum in action. Thanks for all the support!
– Dan & Chris and the rest of the Hassle!
We’re aging punk rockers that continue to be obsessed with Boston’s local music scene. We’ve been going to DIY shows since the late 1970’s, were actively involved in the early 1980’s (writing, photographing, designing, recording, producing, etc.), and extremely happy that the Boston DIY scene remains so vibrant and important today (thanks Boston Hassle!).
