This past November saw the release of Gainesville Punk: A History of Bands & Music by author Matt Walker. The folks at Arcadia Publishing & The History Press have given us three signed copies to give away. You should absolutely enter the contest and try to snag one for yourself.
So what's Gainesville Punk all about?
Known for The Fest, Less Than Jake and Hot Water Music, Gainesville became a creative hub in the 1980s and ’90s for many of punk rock’s greats. Whether playing at the Hardback or wild house parties, earnest acts like Against Me!, Spoke and Roach Motel all emerged and thrived in the small northern Florida city. Radon burst onto the scene with chaotic energy while Mutley Chix helped inspire local torchbearers No Idea Records. Through this succinct history, author Matt Walker traces each successive generation’s contributions and amplifies the fidelity of the Gainesville scene.
The paperback runs at 160 pages and can be purchased from the publisher. It's also available as an e-book for Kindle, nook, kobo, Google Play or iBooks. Check the links to those here.
The contest is open to anyone in the U.S. or Canada to enter. Please enter only once or we'll disqualify you, which would completely defeat the purpose of entering and cause everyone to laugh at you for wasting your precious time. Enter Now and we'll draw 3 names this Sunday.
