The Allstonians and Riki Rocksteady Play Soccer Magazine Print Release Party

The Drug Is Football is a magazine covering soccer in the US and New England in particular.

We provide an outlook on Soccer in the US and especially New England that we think is lacking, an opinionated and off the cuff commentary about the sport. We don’t care if you disagree with us because we aren’t trying to please everyone.

In a bold move, and in true subculture fashion, they’ll be releasing a print edition. You know, a zine! Kudos to the folks making this happen.

To celebrate their first issue, they’re holding a party at McGann’s. Entertainment for the evening will include Boston ska stalwarts, The Allstonians and Riki Rocksteady & The Arraignments.
