Jen! My friend Champ and I have started a local mobile distro (a book mobile for zines!). We started collecting people's zine donations to keep at our house as a distro, but realized its more effective finding people that waiting for people to find us. We have a bike trailer and ride around to different venues (The Smell, Pehrspace, Echo Curio, etc.) and set up so that people have things to read outside of venues between bands. I would be so completely thrilled if you donated some of your stash to us!!
You can write us back and I can meet up with you, or if you send us donations and we can send you back a reimbursement for the shipping.

Does anyone know of any zine libraries in the LA area? I have a TON of old zines that I'd like to donate from the ol' distro days. I was going to ship them up to the IRPC in Portland but that seems like such a waste if we have a resource down here that could use them.

Chicken-Head #28 is out and about. Several spots in the Valley and two in LA: The bicycle Kitchen and Orange 20 is where you can pick them up.

Same here. #28 just got sent to the printer.

That too. I've never really gotten into ezines so I tend to forget their existence.
Comment by Paul de Valera on January 25, 2009 at 11:24pm
Well, it's easier to do a ezine than the real thing.

maybe. there are other places were zines are still thriving, despite the internet. ;) i think it was just a loss of community.
Comment by Paul de Valera on January 25, 2009 at 7:21am
I blame the internet for that one.

I don't really see a lot of zines out here anymore either. I used to see people selling them at shows and I've been to a couple of zine fests out here but there hasn't been one in years, sadly.
