Last Saturday night, a bunch of troublemakers got together at Ojata Record in beautiful Grand Forks, North Dakota to talk about punk rock in the Trump era.
As part of that event, The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota put together a little grab bag of music, books, and documents donated by punk rockers and various colleagues. Thanks to Andrew Reinhard, Chris Matthews and Quiz Show, June Panic, Brian Schill, Bret Weber, and everyone else who made this possible and contributed something fun to the little handout.
The part of this little packet that excites us the most is the first little glimpse of a huge project brewing at The Digital Press: Bret Weber’s Voices of the Bakken. Over the half-decade life of the North Dakota Man Camp Project, Bret Weber and his colleagues interviewed dozens of people in the Bakken. The plan has been to publish all of these interviews with commentary. At present, we’re offer a sample of six of them to give a taste of the range and character of the interviews.
