As much as we'd love to come to New Orleans, NOLA does have the Aboveground Zine Library. I know Robb was looking for new folks to take over there as he's leaving (or has left?). What's the latest activity there?

awesome! come to new orleans! you all do amazing work.
we plan to organize an event like this, except we are incorporating all sorts of independent creative efforts (music, visual arts, etc). we're currently looking for submissions and donations... and all profits of the event will go into a fund that aims to host more events AND if we get enough funds and support, try to sponsor aspiring independent artists and/or give little grants to zinesters/artists/performers just to get them started.
the whole thing is still in the works though. but i would love to hear from everyone!
