City briefly

A case for supporting local music

The phrase "support local music" is one that I hear quite often. I hear it from young musicians who are trying to get their first band off the ground, from older professional musicians who are still trying to fill the room at a gig, and from music lovers who want to see live music in their communities. Though it is a phrase that is thrown around quite a bit, I've realized that its importance may need some explaining to people who don't often go out to hear music, or buy local musicians' music.You see, as it stands right now, live music in Concord (and in all of New Hampshire, for that matter) is…

We rule!

The Insider hasn't been giving the Grammarnator a lot to work with recently, but the piece on a local soap maker did seem to have some missing words "A simple hobby has turned into flourishing, full-time business" and "D'eAngelis said most difficult part of the process is making and putting on labels" cry out for "a" before business and "the" before most. More bizarre in the same article is the reference to "a children." Maybe what has been typed needs another look before printing.Those errors are not as serious as what happened the previous week, although not in the Insider (kudos to you!). As…
