From The Alt: The Alt had only published seven issues, but that didn’t prevent them from compiling a list of their The Alt’s Top 10 Articles – as determined by the alt-weekly’s own writers.

From The Albany Business Review: Speaking of The Alt, in her story about the new alt-weekly publication, Chelsea Diana couldn’t seem to make up her mind. Early on in her story, she wrote “the hole in the market left by Metroland, which published its last issue in January.” Later on in the same story she wrote that “Metroland stopped printing in November 2015.” Two different dates in the same story – and, as it turns out, they’re both wrong. Metroland’s last issue was, in fact, in October, 2015.

From Pollstar: Joe Reinartz interviewed Hudson rocker Tommy Stinson (the Replacements, Guns ‘N Roses) on his upcoming Bash & Pop album and tour
