We started out on districtmagazine.ie just over two years ago with the intention to showcase the best in alternative culture from Irish shores and abroad. Since then we've succeeded in covering the artists, musicians and thinkers we feel are making the right impression on alternative culture.
It's now time we moved to print.
District Magazine Issue One is called 'Hallowed Halls and Houses', a reference to 'Dublin in the Rare Old Times' by The Dubliners. Across over 80 pages it delves into different concepts of 'home' within the realm of underground culture.
It features conversations with some of the figures that we feel represent everything we adore about music and art, including Nite Jewel, Soulé, Mike Pickering, Annie Mac, Angel Haze, Erick The Architect of Flatbush Zombies and Kirk Knight.
The publication also features interviews with and words from people who's idea of home have been rattled by mental illness, incarceration, drug abuse and homelessness.
