Thorns of Life @ Center for The Arts, Eagle Rock Fri Jan 23
Blake Schwarzenbach (Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil) teams up with Aaron “Cometbus” Elliot (Crimpshrine, Pinhead Gunpowder) and Daniela Sea (that one chick from ‘The “L” Word’ on Showtime) for a hot Friday night in yon Eagle Rock late January. Maybe you enjoyed Elliot’s scribbly Green Day tour diaries back in the early 90s. Maybe, like me, you consider most ‘zine writers some type of brilliant monster, predating all bloggers, fully driven to self-publish, distribute and sell - affordably - something that is of interest to them; fuck-all if it’s of no interest to you…
Why publish a zine?
I publish because I don’t know anything else. I grew up with it, and I don’t know how you stay sane without some kind of creative outlet and connection with other people. (source)
And then again maybe you just want to hear what the hell this assemblage will sound like. Should be quite fun. Keep eyes peeled for Billie Joe crashing the party. Tickets are a very reasonable $8 and going fast. From the F Yeah Fest gang:
