Much Ado About Zines Recap
Posted by Josh Jubinsky on March 8, 2010
The Zine Collection events for Much Ado About Books were a huge success. The panel discussion, though a bit early for some of the punx, had a great turnout. Max Michaels, Ian Koss, Tom Pennington and Joe Lachut carried on a lively and engaging discussion.
Joe Lachut from Forts Myers brought up some people with him, including John Fahy, who writes for Maximum Rock n Roll and his own zine “Your Day Will Come”. Since Shelton Hull was absent, Fahy did a last-minute reading from his newest article in MRR. It was an amazing piece detailing his band Merkit touring Europe. Duncan Barlow had a more subdued and thoughtful, though no less awesome, reading. And Patrick Hughes followed with a comedic outpour of energy. Alan Justiss powerfully read some of his poems with a brilliance of wisdom and experience as his pedestal.
Thanks again to everyone who came to the event.
Check out pictures from the event I took here and pictures from Jenny and Tom of Reax Magazine here. We have video of the entire event. Once it’s edited down a bit, we’ll post that in installments as well.
