LacunaLacuna and Rock Paper Scissors Collective are hosting a Zine Panel + Spontaneous Reading!

PART ONE: Zine Panel Featuring…
renowned zine-creators and curators V. VALE (creator of RE/Search and Search and Destroy) JOHN MARR (creator of Murder Can Be Fun), TOMAS MONIZ (creator of Rad Dad), ANDREW COLE (zine coordinator for RPSC), and MORE. We will explore the history and future of zines and accessibility to print.

PART TWO: Spontaneous Reading
The audience will “Lacuna” the RPSC Zine Archive by pulling zines from the shelves, enacting the sense of wonder Lacuna aims to cultivate, and then reading sections aloud.

V. VALE – is an iconic figure of the early San Francisco Bay Area punk scene from his work on the late seventies zine Search & Destroy. While working at City Lights Bookstore, Vale launched the publication with the modest funds of Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. In 1980, Vale founded RE/Search series of publications and continued to bring local, national, and international attention to a punk scene every bit as vibrant, weird, and progressive as the more highly publicized ones to the south and to the east.

JOHN MARR – His zine career started with shit work on Maximum Rocknroll in 1982. He published his own zine, Murder Can Be Fun from 1986 through 2008. He made zine history giving subscribers refunds after the final issue. He is currently pondering his next move.

TOMAS MONIZ – Founder, editor, and writer for the award winning zine, book and magazine: Rad Dad. His novella Bellies and Buffalos is a tender, chaotic road trip about friendship, family and Flammin Hot Cheetos. He is co-founder and co-host of the rambunctious monthly reading series, Saturday Night Special. He’s been making zines since the late nineties, and his most current zines The Body is a Wild Wild Thing and addition / subtraction are available, but you have to write him a postcard: PO Box 3555, Berkeley CA 94703.

ANDREW COLE – Zine coordinator and extraordinaire of the RPSC Zine Archive.

We’re asking attendees for a $10 donation in return for an awesomely curated event, an original artist interpretation of Lacuna in the form of a poster, a Lacuna pin, and a raffle ticket for some great prizes. (Of course no one will be turned away for lack of funds!)
