Sellout Magazine is not about being a sellout, supporting sellout artists, or selling out a string of concerts at well-known commercial arenas. It's about selling thoughts and ideas that inspire us, move us, and help us create something new.

Low Water
A New York based band sounding a little bit Alt-Country (if Alt country spent time in a smoky French café), Low Water is sure to make the ladies swoon with their knack for songcraft and an aching heart. (more)

The Disappearing Act
Remember the '80s? Andrew Sicco, the man behind the beautifully twisted Disappearing Act (TDA) project definitely does. But only the good part of the '80s - The Echo and The Bunnymen/Nick Cave part. He remembers the music that gave birth to what would become "alternative music" and uses the best parts to create a very modern, if depressed, musical landscape. (more)
No upcoming showcases, but fill your time with some entertaining reading: plenty of new Reviews and a new, very special addition to our site: a 4-part series by Alex Zola on "old-man" bars and one man's look back to his simultaneous introduction to the city's working-class and bohemian cultures.

Also, only 10 months or so left to finish your 2006 Christmas shopping! Start with a great stocking stuffer for a great cause: the Ho-Ho-Hospice awareness and mostly original holiday music project from the not-for-profit Volunteer Records. The independent label is offering both of its holiday compilations, Ho Ho Ho Spice and Holiday Heart, at a discounted $10 per CD until the end of February to encourage the continued giving to Saint Barnabas Hospice and Palliative Care Center (SBHPCC). Graham Parker, Better Than Ezra, Rick Derringer, The Dismemberment Plan, NRBQ, Brave Combo, Last Train Home, Mary Karlzen, Chris Stamey and the dB's, Paula Kelley, Otis Gibbs, and members of Whiskeytown, The Smithereens and the October Project are some of the artists appearing on these holiday discs. You can get the disc online through and by mail-order directly from the label. Quantities are limited, so shop now! And be sure to mention you found out about the project from Sellout Magazine.
