I'm what is known as a "late adopter" when it comes to technology. In fact, sometimes I don't adopt new technology at all - just on mere principal. But one thing I can get behind is subscribing to Seattle Weekly and its music magazine, Reverb Monthly, on the Kindle and Kindle Fire. Why? Well, because, they pay me ... but it's pretty freakin' cool nonetheless.
If you have yet to jump on the Seattle-Weekly-on-Kindle bandwagon, now is an ideal time to do so. Our Summer Guide just dropped, and judging by the weather outside my window, you'll want to familiarize yourself with it ASAP. Carrying a theme of "On the Waterfront," the Summer Guide tells you where longshoremen drink in Ballard and Tacoma, gives you the dirt on King County's dog-friendliest lakefront business district, and even heads to Bremerton. What more could a person ask for?
As far as Reverb Monthly goes, Music Editor Chris Kornelis says of June's effort: "We review 60 new local releases, go long on the summer of goth, and John Roderick helps Rosanne Cash out with her plumbing issues." Again, what more could a person ask for?
