Go to house shows? Play house shows? Host house shows? Participate in the DIY music scene?
Submit to Basements and Living Rooms: Stories of House Shows and DIY Music!
your stories and experiences with DIY music! This zine will focus on
house shows but isn't necessarily exclusive to houses. I'm looking for
writings, photos, artwork and whatever else you can think of about going
to house shows, playing house shows, hosting house shows, playing in
DIY bands, booking and promoting DIY bands, distros, putting out cds and
tapes, how house shows and DIY music affect your life, etc. The goals
of the zine are to share stories, reminisce, promote DIY bands, house
venues, and other DIY spaces, tell why these things are amazing and
important parts of the underground/DIY/folk/punk music scene and engage
and inspire houses and bands to continue. Also, if you put on shows at
your house or some other type of venue, please submit a description,
photo and location if you wish, and list of upcoming shows. We could
even have a r.i.p. show house section.
DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 1ST
send images as a JPEG, PDF or TIFF and at least 300 dpi, word or txt
documents, or physical copies of writings, photos, artwork, etc. Email
with any questions, ideas or comments.
