About The Alternative

The Alternative ( exists to promote the best music. On our site you'll find articles, interviews, playlists, reviews, and more, all with the goal of exposing underrated artists to new ears.

Our staff is made up of a diverse group of writers, photographers, designers, and editors who have great taste and constantly search for the coolest tracks. We want to grow our site while staying free from the outside influence of corporations and advertisers. That's why we started this Patreon.

We believe that the support of our readers can fund The Alternative and allow us to promote even more great music. All of our funds are shared proportionally and fairly among our staff or used to fund more cool events for the site, including sponsoring festivals and making videos and live sessions for our Twitch channel and YouTube.

Thank you for checking out our page and we hope you will consider supporting our mission.

$940.37 of $1,000 per month
At $1000 a month, we'll be able to increase contributor pay with a $600 monthly staff budget, while creating sweet merch and sponsoring more fests.
