Putty Hill is a new feature-length film project by Baltimore filmmaker Matt Porterfield (director of Hamilton). A fundraiser and preview screening for the film is happening on Monday, February 1 at The Charles Theater at 9PM. Don’t miss it! RSVP

Putty Hill: A young man dies of a heroin overdose in an abandoned house in Baltimore. On the eve of his funeral, family and friends gather to commemorate his life. Their shared memories paint a portrait of a community hanging in the balance, skewed by poverty, city living, and a generational divide, united in their pursuit of a new American Dream.

All Our Noise, DC based independent media journal, sat down with Fan Death Records founders Sean Gray and Chris Berry to discuss the history of the label, DNA Test Fest, and why the DC scene sucks. Check out the full article and parts two and three of the interview on the AON website.

Is This Racist?

Episode 2

Emily Slaughter and Mickey Freeland, Baltimore’s ultimate and penultimate authorities (respectively) on Race and Racism have teamed up to bring you an exciting and intellectually stimulating new episode of their podcast: Is This Racist? Over the course of roughly an hour, Emily and Mickey will play us potentially un-PC songs from all corners of the past century of popular culture and determine, once and for all, which are deserving of the “Racist” stamp. Join them for an inane hour of discussion, argument and nutty music on their new podcast. Enjoy!
