Thanks to artists like Eva Avenue, Marya Errin Jones and Andrew Lyman, Burque’s zine scene has been pumping out some quality DIY lit for the past several years. These zinesters—and many others—bring their Xeroxed glory to the first ever ABQ Zine Fest, which kicks off tonight at Cellar Door Gifts & Gallery. While attending the zine mixer, rock out to jams from The Scrams, Lady Uranium and The Deadtown Lovers. Get full details on the rest of the weekend’s festivities in this week’s Alibi.
UPDATE: The Scrams and Lady Uranium have been scratched from the bill. 15 Polk St. has been added and DJs Mello and Caterwaul will spin.
Right now tiny periodicals are alive and well, experiencing a renaissance right here in Burque. The zine scene comes into view as the first of five fundraisers for ABQ Zine Fest brings the local culture, its adherents and the fruits of their labor into focus.
