Zine freaks and art fiends belly cruisin through town to share a night of STORIES and SQUIRMIN and ROCKIN and maybe we all go out for donuts afterward?!

WHO ARE THESE TOURING PEOPLE
Blair Bogin makes documentary-based hybrids of writing, performance, photo and video. She is interested in the tension between ego and depersonalization. Her live performances are object based monologues that move ordinary life into a larger world of poetry by comparing the facts of every day confusion and suffering with its lesser quantifiable absurdities.
Vicky Lim writes Abstract Door, a zine that serializes the tedious, slow-motion efforts made to open and enter new experiences (#1 Job, #2 Home, #3 Love, #4 Death, #5 Chicago), and in the process, collects thoughts, memories, questions, anxieties, letters, dreams, and other notes to shapeshift a narrative from the existential p.o.v. of a queer, midwestern, Asian lost girl office worker in her late twenties looking for her desire/s.

Jim Joyce writes Let It Sink: short essays, post it note illustrations, skeezy screen prints, notes about windows, tigers, Neruda, Catholic Damage, rivals, axioms, ghosts.
Dave Roche has been making zines since 2000. Some of them have been ok. (On Subbing, If Nothing Else the Sky, About My Disappearance)
