“People’s Partay”, the newest Danielson single from the February-22nd-bound Best of Gloucester County squeezes a heck of a party into two minutes and twenty-three seconds.  But the party doesn’t end here.  No, not by a long shot.

The “People’s Picture Partay” is a two-week party-game, and you’re invited.  We’re collecting drawings and photos of “conversation, recreation, and celebration” (from the chorus of the song).  In other words, we want images of downright partay-ing.  The best photos and drawings will be assembled into the official “People’s Partay” video, which will be unveiled on the interwebs immediately before Danielson hits all major U.S. highways for the “People’s Springtime County Partay” (check the itinerary here).  So, start sending pictures!  You could be famous!!  Your friends could be famous!!  Your grandma could be famous!! Not only that, but the person with the most pictures used in the video gets the ‘Gloucester County Prize Pack’!

A few guidelines:

1. Submissions will be accepted from now through Feb. 22

2. Send as many images as you want to

3. Images need to be original (meaning you own the rights to the image)

4. Images of “conversation, recreation, and celebration”

5. Images need to be rated G

6. Images need to be 1 MB or less.

Let’s get this partay started!

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
