LA Zine Fest This Weekend!

If you thought blogs killed the zine, you’ll be heartened to learn that the indie tradition of homemade publishing in print is alive and well, and being celebrated this weekend here in town.

The L.A. Zine Fest takes place this Sunday at the downtown Spring Arts Tower, in The Last Bookstore and on the floor above. The event will feature panel discussions, workshops, even a conversation between Henry Rollins and the legendary V. Vale of RE/Search Publications. L.A. Record will host an afterparty in the bookstore, with KXLU DJs spinning.

A pre-fest Comix & Zine Reading is planned for Saturday evening at the art gallery Home Room. Over a dozen local artists are participating, including the creators of FishbowlLA’s beloved comic Henry & Glenn Forever.

All events are free.
