WRONG BRAIN IS BACK. #6 BABY. OH YES.

After two long, sad years without an issue of Wrong Brain, we are BACK. That’s right, kids, issue #6 is gonna hit you in the face. And we’re going to include a feisty compilation CD full of Seacoast NH/Southern ME music goodness. I know its overwhelmingly amazing, but don’t cry. It’s gonna be great.

We are focusing on local contributors only this time. We feel our community needs a thread sewn through the many isolated artists. For the lonely, lost, the dedicated, fledgling, the shy and the obnoxious creators and expressionists throughout Portsmouth, Dover, Exeter, Kittery and the like, we need Wrong Brain #6 to learn from each other and encourage ourselves to KEEP ON DOING IT. We are here to promote and share the amazing artists we live next to. Strength in numbers, people. Come on.

So send us your art, writing and music. Send it before JUNE 1, 2013. Include your name as it will be published and a link to your website or blog.
