a place for zinesters - writers and readers
On Sunday, December 5th in the gallery at Meltdown Comics, False Start will host a screening of “Don’t Need You”, a short documentary about the origins of Riot Grrrl, a feminist punk rock movement from the early 1990’s. Through making music, playing shows and writing zines, Riot Grrrls created a movement centered on creativity, self-expression and making marginalized voices heard. In addition to the screening there will be an art show of work that embodies the do-it-yourself, low art, punk rock spirit of Riot Grrrl. If you're an artist and want to be in the show, scroll down to the bottom for submission guidelines.
The documentary is 40 minutes long and there will be zines to browse and buy, some booze to sip on for those that are 21+ (bring your own, too!), and of course, art to look at! It'll be a fun, relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
Head on down to Meltdown Comics, 7522 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046 on December 5th at 3 PM for awesome zines, art, people and an inspiring documentary. RSVP to the Facebook event page, bring your friends and I'll see you there!
Wanna see YOUR work in the show? Here's some more info on what we're looking for:
Riot Grrrls didn’t wait to be backed by a major label to make their music, Zinesters don’t wait for a publisher to give them permission to publish, and we want art from artist’s who believe in doing-it-yourself, not waiting for someone to do it for you. We’re interested in any medium that can be hung on a wall and are open to any subject matter and content. We want low-brow art, outsider art, art from artists who think creation and self-expression are important above all else.
