FOLKS – if you’re in the Athens/Georgia area today, please join Missy and fellow zinesters, JOE CARLOUGH and KATIE HAEGELE, as well as musicians K & KEIKO (KISHI BASHI!) at AVID BOOKSHOP tonight at 6pm. Joe and Katie are on a weekend-long tour from Philadelphia, sharing and reading from their self-published oeuvre. Missy will be opening with a few readings from her comic-journals, and she’ll also have a handful of her zines and books for sale. Festivities will close with music from the amazing K & Keiko Ishibashi. We would love to see you all this Sunday evening!
Hey Everybody! I’m going to be a-playin’ my trumpet with FOLKLORE all this weekend and you should come check us out if you can because I don’t know how often this is going to happen!…ya see, Jimmy Hughes, the head honcho of Folklore, moved away from Athens, Georgia last year and re-located to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He has since put together a PHILLY VERSION of Folklore and they started playing a buncha shows in and around the Philly area. This is the first time the Philly version of Folklore will be touring down to Georgia and we are going to be combining the Northern and Southern members of the band into one big SUPER GROUP (in my head I’ve been calling it MEGA FOLKLORE). You can read about all the details HERE, via FLAGPOLE, our local arts, culture, and entertainment weekly…Mega Folklore will be playing two shows in Athens, and one in Atlanta, starting this Friday night:
