Here’s what’s up and coming

So many positive changes are going to blossom in 2011 for the Independent Weekly (aka the INDY) and one of them is building a street team.

INDY Street Team responsibilities will be to help promote and attend upcoming events sponsored and cosponsored by the Independent as well as help promote the Independent brand.


  • Name must represent the INDY
  • Name cannot be longer than three words
  • No Profanity
  • Name must be marketable


BFI (Best Friends of INDY), Indycent Exposure, Indyvaders … You get the idea! (Note: “INDY” does NOT have to be in the name.)


E-mail entries to and put “Street Team Name” in the subject line.


A $50 gift certificate to The Regulator Bookshop on Ninth Street in Durham. So let’s get to submitting some names! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.


The contest ends December 15th so that we can ring in the New Year with our new team name! Contest winner will be notified and gift card will be mailed.

Join the team

If you are interested in being a street team member, we will be publishing ads shortly on how you can get involved. Stay tuned!
