We’d like to take time out to introduce Chad Swiatecki as a contributor to the blog. Chad lives in the Live Music Capitol of the World, Austin, Texas and currently writes for Austin360.com.
He’ll be bringing his thoughts and opinions on all things music to the blog once a week or so and you can count on him to speak his mind after appearances over the years in SPIN, Alternative Press, URB, CMJ New Music Monthly and Details magazine, along with Spin.com.
You can also follow him on Twitter at @theechad and @ubthedj.
A Michigan native, Chad got started in music throwing all-ages punk and heavy metal shows in his home town of Saginaw, Mich. and spent eight years as a writer and community activist in Flint, Mich., where he also met Brock early in the vividbraille journey.
Dude’s got game. We’re glad to have him here. You will be too.
