It looks like a magazine (glossy!) and feels like a book (super thick!). But it’s a newspaper, it’s free, and it’s out on the streets today: Washington City Paper‘s Best of 2015 issue!

Our staff writers, editors, and contributors have written the near-equivalent of an entire normal-sized City Paper on the best of D.C.’s arts scene: the venues, labels, musicians, festivals, newcomers, old faithfuls, TV shows, and power players that make our city an arts community we can be proud of.

And our readers have spoken, too—-the winners of our annual poll represent the popular vote on best art class, local cover band, movie theater, DJ, and more.

Pick it up today. Read it. Cuddle up with it tonight, and always (or at least until our 2016 issue). Keep it in your desk drawer, coffee table, or safe deposit box.

Or, if you prefer your words illuminated on a screen, check out our picks online:
