Burque zines unite!

A small magazine, people

We’ve got some really great zines in this city. If you don’t know about them, or don’t know where to get them, come to the zine reading tonight! If you’re too lazy to read, or don’t like to, that’s okay too–tonight people will read to you!

Those who want to read from their zines, or even from someone else’s they love, are invited to email cellardoorgifts@gmail.com and get a spot. Everyone else is just invited to come check out some new issues of various tiny mags.

These readers are confirmed so far: Erik Gamlem, Marya Jones, Mike Smith and Lisa Barrow

There will be snacks, and a big special announcement about the upcoming Albuquerque Zine Fest. People 12 years old and up, please!

Some new zines I already grabbed

Hitting the streets this week is the latest “Wig Wam Bam,” the zine of local music and nepotism put forth by sometimes Alibi contributor Captain America. This one will review about six months’ worth of shows. Pick it up at Cellar Door, Winning Coffee and Low Spirits. Also hot off the press is the new Nightly Noodle Monthly, a brochure for the inside of Eva Avenue’s brain. Snag it at Winning, and other places she might put it.

(Special thanks to my hand models who both have very good-looking faces that were not useful in these shots)

“Wes” by Wes Naman

Gallery Review

Foolishness

Just like those old pictures of your great-great-grandpa E.T.

It all started with a gas mask. Looking like a menacing bug in a suit, photographer Wes Naman (formerly on staff at the Alibi) transformed his studio into an extraterrestrial time portal, from which he made a series of spooky, rustic self-portraits.

“War Pig” by Malachai Mahboub

Gallery Review

Art Gets Creepy

I can finally quench my thirst for bloodthirsty humanoid war pigs. Awesome.

Jessica DuVerneay has a definite idea of what Cellar Door Gifts & Gallery should and should not be.
