a tiny record label from western massachusetts

DIY in our home away from home

TinyRadars has endless love for DIY culture and the Boston music community. This is a particularly sweet Letter to the Editor that was published in the Boston Phoenix this week about last weekend's Allston DIY Fest and really speaks to the kind of world we are trying to build through our tiny record label.

This collective culture, with socio-political agenda or without, is a huge part of what makes a city's creative landscape vibrant and contemporary. While Boston has historically been a provincial city, recognized more for its medical, financial, and tech communities than its artistic offerings, DIY Fest was a testament to the fact that the city's young artists and organizers are on their game — and much more awesomeness is on the way. It was easily one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen happen here. All of these amazing kids came out of their basements, worked through the red tape to pull permits, and shared this phenomenon in broad daylight at Ringer Park. Hats off to the organizers and the participants for their tireless work in making Boston a better place to live.
