We’re proud to announce the return of Tangents Magazine, the lauded freeform magazine that excited and rattled the city of Charlotte during the 1990s, to the newsstands in May. Tangents was a popular ‘zine that originally ran from 1995 to 1998, pushing the bounds of covering arts, music and culture in Charlotte. Tangents was freewheeling, opinionated and proud of its rough edges. Each issue had its own character and surprises. Tangents won national awards for its work, despite being put together each month by a small group of writers, photographers and artists.
After returning last year for what was intended at the time to be a one-off surprise 20th anniversary issue, the overwhelming response convinced the original staff to returnTangents to full-time status. Tangents was and will again be a free magazine, available at various locations all over Charlotte. You’ll recognize some of the names involved with this new edition of the magazine, as well as new voices and new ideas. And, well, new weirdness. Tangents is currently planning to be released bi-monthly in 2016, with plans for more issues in 2017.
Tangents will celebrate its return with a free party at the Evening Muse on May 14th from 2pm to 5pm. The official release date for the new issue is May 15th, and this party will also serve as the first place that people can pick up copies of the new issue. The fantastic singer and songwriter Mike Strauss will also perform at the party. The Evening Muse is at the corner of 36th and North Davidson, in the heart of the NoDa area. The Evening Muse is one of the best live music venues in the Southeast, and just celebrated their 15th anniversary.
