Welcome to the official Rivethead Magazine Editor's Desk!  From here we will publish editorial and opinion articles and pretty much anything we have to say deemed of interest to our readership.  We encourage submissions from our readers!  Rivethead has always been written by volunteer staff, and still is.  We make no money at this.  We don't really want to.  We want to expose Houston and other regional-area music.  Please email anything you have to say, reviews of your favorite local band's new demo, interviews you might have done with H-town players, music-related art, or anything else falling within our scope directly to the Editor at andrewschlett@rivetheadmagazine.com and we'll get right on it!
