Went to this photo show in Pasadena last weekend. Driving to Pasadena was a nice break from Houston. I hadn’t been out there in so long. The scenery is not pleasing to most people, but it was a tranquil and calm night and in that moment it was perfect.
Here’s a zine trade that I got in the mail recently: Appalachian Monsters!
From Carmen’s website: “Appalachian Monsters is a zine based in Southwest Virginia. Our goal is to strengthen the communities of Appalachia and to raise awareness about problems and triumphs of these communities. We want to raise awareness of/spotlight issues such as substance abuse, racism, injustices faced by the queer community, lack of support for the local art, as well as spotlighting the positive members and resources of these communities.”
It was a really nice read. There is an informative article about women singers in Appalachia that had a significant influence on country music. Because of this I’ve been listening to a lot of Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton lately. There is also some poetry and reviews of house shows as well as a cool interview with Adam Brewer of the Globsters from Kentucky. I never heard about this band before, but I am intrigued and want to learn more.
Check out the other issues of Appalachian Monsters in the store. Such an awesome zine!
