Zine Fest unfolds tonight

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.

Talisman group show reception Friday Aug. 26

More than 18 artists are exhibiting at Cellar Door Gifts & Gallery, as part of the group show Talisman. Curated by Kris Mills, the pieces are the artists’ responses to the idea of a talisman—an item that influences or motivates one’s actions or thoughts. Some offerings are grotesquely humorous, others intricately whimsical. This manifestation of work is only in the gallery until Aug. 31, so get in there and see it, perhaps during the show’s reception on Friday, from 8 to 10 p.m. You can eat snacks and feast your eyes at the same time.
