About

Founded in Los Angeles, California by Justin Gage, Aquarium Drunkard has long served as a haven for discerning and adventurous listeners since 2005. Digging globally, AD offers an eclectic array of features, interviews, sessions, podcasts and reviews, all through a distinctive, esoteric lens. Bridging contemporary sounds with sub rosa psych, jazz, avant-garde, folk, garage and beyond, the scope is wide but the concept is simple: Only the good shit.

Release dates, trends and hype aren’t driving forces at AD; the material featured on the site is there because Gage and his dedicated staff genuinely dig what they’re writing about.

In 2018, Aquarium Drunkard's longstanding blog configuration shifts into a true magazine format, with an emphasis on in-depth features, sessions, and a fully-searchable archive featuring more than 13 years of music and culture writing. Aquarium Drunkard has always provided unrestricted access —no paywalls, no restrictions, free to all —and will continue to do so. But maintaining the site and compensating contributors require support. In addition to a revamped and redesigned website, Aquarium Drunkard launches this Patreon page, which will allow readers and listeners to directly support AD as it expands its reach, while receiving access to bonus audio, exclusive podcasts, ephemera, vinyl records and more. Your support will help keep an independent cultural resource alive and healthy in 2019 and beyond. More than ever before, quality independent music and culture writing is hard to find and even harder to keep sustained. With your support and patronage, AD will continue to provide access to art and music spanning decades, offering readers and listeners a guide to underground art, music, and culture. For heads, by heads.
