September 2023 Issue
Welcome to your September 2023 issue of ANTIGRAVITY.
We begin with a reflection on foundational teachers, enter Virgo season (characterized by organization and efficiency), clean bongs with Tips From Theriot, look at the unique challenges of parenting a teenager in this month’s Raising Louisiana, and speak with Rev. Robert Sinewave about his extensive record collection in our Sound Check (gear geek) column. Dirt Nerd urges us to offer our sad, summer plants patience in this unforgiving weather, while MaCCNO briefs us on the exploitations of development, old and new. In For the Record, we compile comments from recent ordinances that would criminalize aid to New Orleans’ unhoused community.
Recently, the workers at Blue Bikes Nola unionized; Alena Cover speaks with one of the organizers about their working conditions and what they’re hoping to achieve in negotiations—now that the union has been recognized. Danny Cherry Jr. dives into the big money and political power targeting trans youth. Dalton Spangler asks Rathbone about soundtracking the class war. Plus, a tour diary with ska saviors (skaviors?) BAD OPERATION, and what keeps them going.
Plus your (un)usual assortment of comics, photos, poetry, and a tarot reading to close out the night.
