April 2017 Issue, Free Download

It’s a really crazy time. The fake news sounds more like real news, and the real news is too unbelievable. Our April issue reflects all of this, and more. Harkening back to an April Fool’s issue that we did in 1998, the news in this issue sounds closer to the truth than what the truth has turned into. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, our new issue won’t be on the newsstands. 

But fear not! Much like the NCAA coming in to (sorta) save the way, you can download our new issue as a pdf. Print, share, and spread the word. Plus, there’s loads of interviews with local bands, and what is (really) going on. We’ll be back soon with news on upcoming stories and interviews. Keep circulating the PDFs, and see you soon.

Announcing The Official Return Of Tangents Magazine

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.
