I would like to introduce Westfield News readers to my new weekly local (New England area) music and concert report for 2013.
The Rawk Report will focus on upcoming concerts, pre-sale information for future shows, reviews and feedback on new music releases and concerts along with your not-so-typical band interviews.
I would like this column to bring attention to the local scene as well as cover shows and releases from well-known artists… so if you are a promoter, club manager, artist or just a general do-gooder and want to send me some print worthy news, I will incorporate as much as I can into the weekly report.
Speaking of local, if you are a local artist that is looking to get your new music reviewed and possibly used as a contest giveaway, send me a quick email to discuss.
