About Bishop & Rook:

Founded in 2013, Bishop & Rook is an independent Boston music blog. We champion the underdogs, we stay up late on weekdays, we’re snazzy dressers and we promote the punk and rock genres of the Boston music scene by way of premium record and live show reviews, limit one per cocktail.

At this time, we primarily cover the punk / rock genres. If you start off your email with "Love your website, long time reader! Here is my rap/electronic/folk/experimental cello project that mimics whale sounds," (true.effing.story) please rethink that email because we cannot maintain a relationship that was built on a lie.

Music Submission Details:

After four amazing years, we're taking a break from writing music reviews. We encourage you to hop around the blog for archived favorites. You can still discover new (old) music!
