Harp CoverStill reeling from the loss of No Depression, music lovers suffered another blow last week when Harp magazine announced that it was shutting down after seven years of publishing. The official statement on the magazine’s website cites the “decline of the music software industry, coupled with the consolidation of the consumer magazine newsstand business and rising paper and postage costs,” as reasons why it ceased publication.

The final issue, which arrived in the Utne library two weeks ago, contains a very funny dispatch from the world’s longest running Beatles fan convention in Las Vegas, and Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters officially announced his campaign for president. They will be missed.
