      The 8-Ball Zine Fair Still Has Nothing to Do with Cocaine

      November 29, 2012

      This Sunday, if you live near New York City, you should definitely skip church and head over to Space Billiards in Korea Town for the second installment of the 8-Ball Zine Fair. Just send your family a link to this post so they know that it's has nothing to do with that white girl. Last year, this shit was popping and we expect it to be just as much fun this time around. Once again, it is organized by our buddy Lele Saveri and put on in conjunction with ALLDAYEVERYDAY. The fair features tons of great stuff from the world of independent music, art, and publishing including:

      Dashwood Books
      Ed Varie
      Etudes Books
      Horses Think
      Hamburger Eyes
      Jason Polan
      Swill Children
      Pau Wau Publications
      Toilet Paper Magazine
      Luaka Bop

      Miss Lily’s Variety

      Plus, there's going to be good music curated by RadioLily.com, a video installation by William Strobeck, and hot cider for sale (proceeds go to aid Sandy relief efforts). You can even drop off your own self-published zines and tapes to the DIY table.

      On top of all this awesome shit, Lele is also working with the dudes at Pau Wau Publications to create five special zines, just for the fair. One is by Evan Morris Cohen, who at the ripe age of 20, was asked to be the tour photographer on GG Allin's final tour before he passed away. Andreas Laszlo-Konrath also documented the punk life, shooting kids at various festivals. Giorgio Di Salvo and Charlie Engman both created still life series and Richard Kern put together a zine of his clothed and unclothed cute girl school photograph series, Class, some of which we featured a few years ago. Check out some images from the zines and and go to the fair. I'll be there, say hi!
