SPOKE(a)N(e) Issue #5: May 2009

The fifth issue of SPOKE(a)N(e) Magazine is up, and as usual, we want to know what you think.

Check it out here.

What can you expect to find this month?

-Tyson Habein interviews photographer and Mon Cheri drummer, Brandon Vasquez, along with clothing and accessories designer, Dayle Sandborn

-Lloyd N. Phillips interviews musicians from the Spokane Babes of Music Showcase, featuring Gutterpony, Cure All Remedy, Kristen Marlo, and Colleen Rice. He also covers the First Friday Art Walk.

-Tyson’s interview and eight page fashion spread featuring the work of 17-year-old clothing designer Lexi Carr.

-In the current Compulsive Chronicles, Sara Habein devotes some thought to what makes cover songs special. While possibly alienating Rolling Stones fans in the process. Try not to hold it against her.

SPOKE(a)N(e) is always looking for contributors (writing and photography), advertisers (see the back page of this issue for our rates), and all around recommendations. Email us, promote your work, promote your friend’s work, or just say, “Hey, I saw something really cool, and I’d like to tell you about it.”

We want to cover anything creative, in the farthest-reaching definition of the word, so if you’re unsure if what you want to promote is our “style,” email us anyway. We’re an inclusive bunch.

Even if you don’t want to contribute, let us know you’re reading. We can also be found on Facebook, where fans of the magazine receive updates, teasers for upcoming issues, and whatever other goodies we’d like to share.

Thanks for reading.
