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 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 after being inspired by what they saw and learned at the magazine 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 the whole staff as well as a few other New York artists.
