At Meltdown Comics: on December 5th @ 3 PM, 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.

The documentary will be 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!

Call for submissions: 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.

JUNE 5th from 6-9 at the Silverlake Lounge my friend from the Local 562 (an arts collective out of Whittier) is putting together a free show with free booze! And I'll be tabling in the back, along with the Local 562 and hopefully Nan Lawson and Michael Jonathan! Save the date and come check it out!

Hello Everyone! I've started a Zine Club that meets the third Wednesday of every month at The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica. Our first meeting in next Wednesday May 19th from 6-8pm. You can check it out here. We are going to have zine swaps, have zines to look at and work on some collaborative projects as well. Hope you can make it!

I would like to invite you to Saturation Fest 2010's DIY Arts & Letters Fest. The event will be held at the Riverside Art Museum, Saturday, May 29, 2010, from 12 noon-4pm. We are inviting self-publishers to table and read from their self-published/small press works. Are you interested? Email Angela at madame.angela.chaos@gmail.com. and let me know if you'd like to table, read, or both :) If you know anyone who is interested in being involved, please feel free to forward my information. First-time publishers are strongly encouraged to apply!

WHAT IS SATURATION FEST? Saturation is a DIY art and music festival that occurs semi-annually in Riverside, CA. Saturation is a labor of love, and it’s successful because of the incredible talent in Riverside. We keep doing it because it’s fun, and because it’s vital to keep up the hard work on behalf of the bands, artists, and community that make Riverside uniquely creative and supportive.

For the month of March there will be a bad ass sale happening at the distro!

For every order for the rest of the month, you have the option of getting one zine that is equal to or lesser than the value of the most expensive zine in your order for FREE! For example, if the most expensive zine in your order is $3, you can choose one extra zine that is $3 or less to be included free of charge! To take advantage of this offer, next time you place an order just type into the “notes” field which zine you’d like for free — don’t add it to your basket! There’s one free zine allowed per order.

Now get ordering & get your free zine before the month is through!

Just wanted to spread the word about the awesomeness that is Drippy Bone Books (http://drippybonebooks.com/). It's based out of Denver, Amsterdam and LA, and I met up with the dude that runs the LA side of things yesterday, Keenan. He is super awesome and is organizing lots of great art/zine/music stuff in LA so keep an eye out for the stuff that Drippy Bone has got going on!
