You may have heard about Alibi, an exciting new nonprofit magazine based in Oakland that aims to present "rock 'n' roll and literature side by side" in order to explore their relationship. With Zach Rogue of Rogue Wave and Neko Case on the board of directors, and Case slated to play the live show celebrating its first issue, Alibi seems poised to do the long-overdue rock-lit pairing right.
There's just one problem: For legal reasons, the magazine needs a new name, and its editors want your help in choosing one. The soon-to-be-renamed Alibi is taking up to three suggestions from fans for its new moniker. And the reward -- uh, aside from getting to name a new high-quality magazine -- is front-row seats and backstage passes to the mag's Neko Case show next March in S.F. Also, a free subscription. Also, bragging rights for eternity. So put your naming cap on and hit the jump for details.
From Alibi's blog post on the naming project:
Guidelines: You may submit up to three name ideas, sent via email to email@example.com. Include your name ideas, your contact info, and how you found out about this. The deadline is Halloween. Soon after, our editorial staff will select a winning name.
Referral: We encourage you to spread the word. If you tell someone about this and that person submits the winning name, you will also receive a gift subscription.
Fans of literature and rock 'n' roll, you have your marching orders. Name away! But Replacements fans, please note that "All Shook Down" is taken.
