'Zined Out

'Zine Make
Friday, December 12th, 7pm
Shane House
Call 245-2681 for directions

Maxed Art has been hosting a 'zine bee at various locations once a month. It's B.Y.O.S. (Bring Your Own Supplies), such as scissors, found paper, glue, pencils, pens, markers, glitter, etc. Show up with a willing friend or two, and some refreshments if you're so inclined. Paper will be provided to ensure the pages are all the same size. The content changes theme every 20 minutes, e.g. money; the color red; boll weevils; plastic fork; and the 'zine pages will be bound together as the evening progresses. Writers are also welcome to contribute content on the topics at hand. Last month, about a dozen folks came out. We spent a chill evening collaging to our little hearts' content, listening to music, chatting and eating tater tots from The Grill.

Somewhat unfortunately, the 'Zine Make is also happening on the same evening as the Tu Scene Launch Party at Dinnerware. A couple of doors down, PLAY will be open (I believe they'll be hosting a performance of some kind [their opening last weekend was HUGE! did anyone get any photos?]), and CAG should open, too. Shane House is just a few blocks away, so you can probably do it all, otherwise, make a mental note to come to the next 'zine-a-thon, because there'll only be one launch party! I'll keep you posted.
