Digboston.com is a product of DigBoston, Boston’s always witty and never dull guide to nightlife, opinion and events. Find it in orange or black boxes around the city and inside your favorite places to go to. Dig Publishing founded the alternative weekly in 1999.


Founded in 1999, DigBoston is Boston’s best and only alternative weekly publication. Always witty, never dull, the Dig, as it’s affectionately known, is truly the cure for what’s ailing the curious mind. How do we do that, you ask?

We cover local news, arts, music, sex, food, movies and shopping in a lively, funny, incisive and, most importantly, dead honest style. This has helped us develop a rapidly growing, and rabidly loyal, readership unparalleled in the Boston market. At a time when both marketers and other publications are struggling to figure out how to attract young people, the Dig does it week in and week out. The Dig is the only publication in Boston that has an absolute lock on the 21-34 year-old demographic everyone’s after.

Looking for a copy? We’re out there!

  2. Hello! I am the Shop Manager for Zadig & Voltaire, a French clothing company that just opened up within Bloomingdale’s at the Chestnut Hill Mall in Newton.

    Since we are a new addition to the Boston market and are looking to expand to other Boston locations within a year or two, I wanted to reach out to start spreading the word to the fashionistas in Boston…

    If there is any way to be included for write-ups in the future, or if there any other opportunities within your organization in which we could become involved to help promote our entry into Boston, I would love to work with you. If you wouldn’t mind, I’d like to send you a little goody bag along with an invitation to come out and meet with me to see our line up-close-and-personal.

    Just let me know where I can send you a lookbook in addition to a time that would work for you if you are interested.

    Thank you!

  3. Hi,

    My name is Larissa Wignall and I work for a digital media and social networking agency in the UK, called Sentric Digital. One of our clients, Yousef will be embarking on a tour throughout the USA this February and I am enquiring as to whether you would be interested in interviewing the DJ and Music Producer prior to his tour? Yousef will be touring throughout Miami, El Paso, Vancouver, Newport, Montreal and Boston. He will make his stop at Rise in Boston on February 16th.

    I shall look forward to hearing from you.

New sounds, new developments and new frontiers; they all remain an instrumental part of his thrust forward as one of the planet’s leading underground House music taste makers.”

  5. Hey!

    I am the founder of S3 Leagues Boston, a Singles Social Sports League launching this summer. I actually met my current boyfriend “on the field” in New York. When we came to Boston we realized there was nothing like S3 here, so we decided to create it. We have been working on the league for over a year and will be launching Singles Social Sports this June.

    Boston Magazine recently wrote an amazing article about us and I was wondering if you would be interested in writing about us too. I am avaiable to speak at any time about our leagues.

    Thank you for your time. I really look forward to speaking with you.

    I have been trying for a long time to get at least some acknowledgement of BEAMS, a novel idea.

    BEAMS is not a book about Washington or Lincoln or Kennedy. But though it was written by an unknown individual, it may deserve a look-at. It’s about a great many things, not just unemployment or extraterrestrial aliens or sexual evolutions.

    If you have had the good fortune to take even a quick peek at BEAMS, please feel as free as the book to let someone else know about it. Don’t just pass the buck – pass the book.

    Though I may be just one of the little people of equally little consequence, I think BEAMS could be a true eye-opener.

    Thank you very much!

    PS: I am not worried about copyright issues, as my name “Moshe Briel” has been effectively coded in key places in BEAMS to be disclosed in case of any dispute.

  9. I understand that you may be stardting an edition here in Portland, ME. If so, I’d like to be on your press release list so I can inform my readers of this. Can you pls. confirm this and then add me to your press release list?
