March is already here and I feel like February was WAY too short! Even so, the NUG staff worked extremely hard on a tight deadline to bring you another issue packed with the type of editorial that has come to be expected of us. We want to thank all the readers for continuing to pick up a fresh NUG every month!
This issue is HUGE! We got all kinds of goods for you, including a large piece on the San Diego IndieFest. NUG Magazine is a premier sponsor of IndieFest this year, which takes place on March 12th-13th at the new location: Liberty Station. NUG Records, our new record label in partnership with NUG Magazine, is also sponsoring the Acoustic Stage at this yearâ€™s event, so make sure to come out and support us! We will have a booth by the stage and will be giving away some cool NUG schwag, like we always do at these types of events, so donâ€™t sleep on this one! NUG is an independently owned business and we support all things indie!
Of course, we had to throw in some indie music coverage for this issue, as we do every month, so make sure to check out our article on The Ambassador and the Chosen Few.
Tiffany Janay is on point, telling NUG readers about Farmers Markets and Acupuncture, which will have you on pins and needles. The business profile this month is on The Pier, an online Reggae/Rock/Acoustic Magazine that has great coverage.
Pamelaâ€™s Patient Profile this month is amazing, and we had to make extra room because the story is intense! We got activism and info on the â€œStop the Banâ€ campaign, a hemp composites piece, and our new Health and Wellness column makes its second appearance; and of course, we still have the favorites like the Chronissuer and Cooking with Kim.
On March 5th, weâ€™re throwing a launch party for NUG Recordsâ€™ first signed artist â€“Subliminal Trip â€“ at Soundwave in Mission Beach for their album â€œBe Set Freeâ€. This is going to be one of the dopest shows weâ€™ve thrown to date, so dust off your dancing shoes and get yourself to the party! Mean Dinosuar and Reason to Rebel will also be playing, and the NUG crew will be out in full force. NUG radio will be broadcasting live, so come out and enjoy the show!
