1.21 Gigawatts is a NEW bi-monthly arts and music magazine based in Brooklyn, NY made by a group of Brooklyn based artists. It’s going to be a full size, 32 page, full color magazine. Focused mainly on the New York music and art scene. Every issue includes a free downloadable playlist as well as an original piece of artwork in each copy.

The core staff all met while interning at PAPER Magazine, and they decided to create a publication that covered the Brooklyn scene and community. They have also picked up other staff members along the way including filmmakers, fashion students and others.

The first issue will include articles on Oberhofer, Bear in Heaven, The Yellow Dogs, Life Size Maps and artwork from Brandon Elijah Johnson, Tenzing Gyari, Emily Arlington and more.

1.21 Gigawatts is currently raising funds through Kickstarter to help with the costs of printing. Donors are able to receive anything from digital issues to illustrated portraits of themselves.
