A place for all ears and minds; The Raw Alternative showcases the counterculture in literature, arts and music at their very best. In this publication, we will present you the best underground artists from the local scene and abroad.
Combining Music, Art and Poetry, we will offer an alternative perspective that looks at all of these expressions in a new way. Through features, profiles, reviews and discussion forums we will assess, praise and critique all walks of art, delving into the depths of what mainstream tends to dismiss.
In Music, we will not only look to the underground, but also commemorate current established artist’s who have long made their mark on the scene. In the Art section, there will be innovative artists with the skill and heart to entrap you. Our Blog section will serve as home for our editorials, shedding some light on our views and implementing point-counterpoint discussions. Finally, with Poetry and Fiction, you will get a sense of literary intellect, focusing on all genres and styles.
As the editors of The Raw Alternative, we will make it our duty to keep one step on the threshold of reality, picking apart the most intriguing aspects of the world to showcase to all of you.
