Photos: ALARM #41 release party at Isle of Man

We put on one hell of a release party for ALARM Magazine #41 at Isle of Man Chicago earlier this month. Nearly 75 awesome people attended, including the Goose Island team, the House of Blues marketing team, and a bunch of (greatly appreciated) regular contributors. Photographer Kaitlyn McQuaid captured the night in the photos that follow. (See more in our Facebook album.) Thanks to Goose Island for providing the beer, and the never-ending Chicago snow for keeping it cool.

The new issue features a cover story on Faith No More’s Mike Patton as well as interviews with Deftones, Dropkick Murphys, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and many more. Scope out the style guide for inspiration, take a tour of the amazing $20-million House of Rock in Santa Monica, or get a glimpse of life on the road with Doomtree.

The release of the magazine is exciting enough, but the party and booze made it that much more fun. Check out the photos and pick up the new issue on newsstands now to see for yourself.
