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.

ART SUBMISSIONS:
to SAM at spaolini@wrongbrain.net – In the subject line, put “WRONG BRAIN 6 – ART”
Magazine will be printed black and white on standard 8.5×11″ paper, folded in half. Send no more than 4 images at 300 dpi; 8×5 inches.

WRITING SUBMISSIONS:
to CODY at claplante@wrongbrain.net – In the subject line, put “WRONG BRAIN 6”
I am looking for original writing of nearly any genre. Favor goes towards those submissions which lean towards the themes implied by the name of the zine. Submissions should not go much over 1000 words. I may contact you about small (and optional) revisions to the piece but most contributors should expect to have their pieces only edited for correctness (where it applies). I look forward to reading everything you’ve got for us.

AUDIO/MUSIC SUBMISSIONS:
to GREG at spaolini@wrongbrain.net – In the subject line, put “WRONG BRAIN 6 – AUDIO”
Please send no more than 2 tracks. Include contact information for interviews.

Because Wrong Brain is always FREE, we need money to publish. Blank CDs are expensive. Please sponsor or donate to Wrong Brain and help our artsy fartsy dreams come true. We’ll put your name in the back of the zine and your link on our website and Facebook. SUPPORT LOCAL ART. Because without it, our world would be a dull fucking gray. Email SAM to help!

We will need volunteers to help organize fundraising events, shows, open mics, craft fairs, etc, plus some peeps to copy, staple, fold, and burn CDs. Email SAM to help!

GO TEAM WRONG BRAIN!

LOVE,

SAM & CODY & GREG

Greg, Cody and I had a fun and exciting Wednesday filled with lots of free art, delicious burritos, and Wrong Brain promotion at Dos Amigos Burritos in Dover, NH. We raised over $200 with the help of Dos and our fans. Thanks for coming out!

To reward ourselves for a great fundraiser, here’s a sneak peak from WB5
