Heritage Adelaide street press Rip It Up magazine is set for a relaunch with a new focus on reflecting the Adelaide live music scene of 2019.
The magazine, recently revived by wealthy property investment group Gross Rent Multiplier Publications, will ‘seek to publish all the information a punter needs in order to make prudent decisions around all their entertainment requirements’, according to a press release.
Adelaide’s live music scene now consists entirely of the cover band Clearway, a Clearway cover band called No Standing and the jingles resonating from about 14,000 pokie machines across the greater metropolitan area. Meaning that the new Rip It Up might be a different beast to the original incarnation.
‘We’re giving the punters what they want, literally!’, says editor-in-chief Tasman Æble. ‘The new Rip It Up will give our punting readers all the hot tips on which machines are about to cough up the big bucks, which machines are the good ones in the room and which ones could do with a lucky rub on the side’.
But it’s not just all gaming tips for the relaunched newspaper, the publication will also offer a running guide on all the up-and-coming noise complaints.
‘We know that Adelaide’s live music scene isn’t just about gambling. It’s also about music. And we want to give our readers all the tools they need to decide what they want to listen to. If that means supplying pre-filled noise complaint forms for our readers to submit on behalf of our property investors, well that’s just the beauty of the arts in action’.
Editor’s note: We think Æble has confused the idea of ‘arts in action’ with free market economies
