Bye Bye Portfolio Weekly Magazine, we hardly knew ye.

Word out on the street is that Portfolio Weekly Magazine (PFW) will no longer be published in print form. PFW is Hampton Roads ONLY Art, Music and Culture Magazine. It's equivalent of NYC's Village Voice (but smaller due to the area's population). It's sad to see the magazine go out of print form because it played an important part within the entertainment regional industry.

PFW has nominated The Muckrakes as "BEST AMERICANA BAND" for the region, and had planned an awards ceremony at The Jewish Mother, but due to the demise of the magazine, the ceremony has been put on the chopping block.

We can wish that they continue to print this important weekly newspaper and if they publishers don't, we hope that another publisher / company comes along and sees the value of providing our area with another magazine like it.
