I'm a more recent reader of the Noise, but I've come to respect it as THE source for all the local music news. They've got a slew of well-written articles by folks in the know, articles written for anyone and everyone. You don't need to be a Berklee grad to understand what they're talking about. Whether you're a diehard music fan or just a casual listener, this mag's got something for everyone.
The Noise also has tons of show and CD reviews, and anyone can be a writer. If you've got a love for the local scene, just put pen to paper and pass along your thoughts on some of the shows or bands in town.
Rita and Lolita are a section that's not to be missed. These two pose some pretty cool questions to musicians of all kinds, and keep us up to date on what's happening.
Happy 30th to TMax and all the others at the Noise.
