Featured Interview: Behind the New Music Magazine PULP

The Charger Bulletin

Q: What motivated you to start this sister project with The Charger Bulletin?
A: The project had great support from the beginning, which I think was the first real motivating factor. I wanted to start a music magazine on campus just through a large interest in what’s happening within our school and events going on downtown. Our music program is such a large part of our school and I wanted to create an additional outlet for what’s happening within the musical community.      
Q: What impact do you see this having on the University of New Haven?
A: Hopefully a positive one. Something that can really expand and shed insight into the local scene and expose some new talent-both on and off campus. I’d like the project to be able to continue for years to come.

Q: What specific groups are you looking to get involved with?
A: We’re looking to be involved with all Music/Entertainment based clubs on campus-especially MEISA, because it’s one of the largest. Any club/groups that would be interested in teaming up with our publication, let us know!

Q: Tell us a little bit about what topics you will be covering.
A: A solid range of topics: various events happening on campus (concerts, club events), upcoming shows within the CT area, new music releases, conferences and news within the Music Industry, and features on local artists in the area, both on and off campus.
Q: Can non-music majors help with this publication?
A: Definitely! Just having a general love for music is key. Anyone is welcome to join our staff. Everyone’s musical tastes and musical experiences are so different. Contact [email protected] with questions or intent of interest!

Q: Will this be in a print format anytime?
A: We’d like to be eventually. We’re looking to expand the project into print in the future, maybe by next year. There are advantages to being published online and advantages to being physically published. But having a great public response, as well as being printed is our ultimate goal.
