The Fridge Gallery show is tonight! Hope you’re as excited as I am. The Fridge is just two blocks from the Eastern Market metro, for you car-free-is-the-way-to-be types.
And that’s not all. We have so many awesome events coming up leading to the Zinefest in July. Check out these gems:
Joining an already rock solid line up is Dirk Keaton, hometown hero, zine organizer, and author of OCD Throws Bows, and Emilja Frances from Baltimore/everywhere, who does the awesome comics perzine Ship of Fools!
See you at the Fridge, tomorrow at 8! One night only!

From Wikipedia: Queen Elizabeth I is transported forward in time by the occultist John Dee through the spirit guide Ariel. Elizabeth arrives in the shattered Britain of the 1970s. Queen Elizabeth II is dead, killed in an arbitrary mugging, and Elizabeth I moves through the social and physical decay of the city observing the activities of a group of sporadic nihilists.
Numerous punk icons appear in the film including Jordan (a Malcolm McLaren protégé), Toyah Willcox, Nell Campbell, Adam Ant, Demoriane and Wayne County. It features performances by Wayne County and Adam and the Ants. There are also cameo appearances by The Slits and Siouxsie and the Banshees. The film was scored by Brian Eno.
In order to help us meet our costs, Sassyfrass Circus is selling some sweet zine-related original art that can be yours today (or tomorrow, or whenever). 100% of the proceeds go to the D.C. Zinefest. All pieces are 9″x12″ pen and ink on bristol board, safely tucked in plastic protectors, and will be very carefully shipped to you or hand-delivered if you live in the great(er) D.C. metro area. Please direct any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
