While we post five days per week, we are a journal, not a blog. We publish all original articles and stress depth over breadth, quality over quantity, and optimism over cynicism. Our coverage includes record reviews, concert reviews, and music festivals such as Pitchfork Festival, Bonnaroo, South by Southwest,Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, and Northside Festival.
Three of our articles were chosen by “Freshly Pressed,” the best of 400,000+ blogs on WordPress.com. They are:
Publisher L.V. Lopez and editor-in-chief Keith Meatto met as high school teachers in New York. Though they taught different subjects (Math, English) and had gone to different colleges (Columbia, Yale) they bonded over music, literature, and their general worldview. After seeing many shows together (from Lambchop to Vampire Weekend) they left their jobs, and traveled the country to pursue medicine and fiction writing. They returned to the city, found jobs at local hospitals and colleges, and started Frontier Psychiatrist to share their passions. Since those humble beginnings, we’ve added Managing Editor Peter Lillis in Chicago, staff writers and columnists, and more than 75 contributors. And on July 24 and 25, Lopez represented the site on national television with his appearance on Jeopardy.
