Hong Kong Zine Swap – Sat 9th March
There aren’t many of these in Hong Kong…in fact, I don’t think there’s ever been one…and there’s definitely no zine fest here, so if you’re in HK and you like looking at zines you should probably go.
It’s organised by a guy called Leo who used to work at Future Industries, but is now a bum.
Maybe he works for another gallery or art space. Or maybe he does that ATM scam where he stands behind you and remembers your pin number, then follows you and nicks your card?
Maybe he sells cardboard for a living?
Fuck it…I don’t know why he left Future Industries or what he’s doing now, but he is in charge of this zine swap.
Zines can’t really be found in HK, so this swap event is a good thing.
Gupter Puncher Issue 14 will be there, around 30-40 copies. You might even be able to buy a copy of Planet Rasputin [if they’re printed in time].
Some bands that are decent but not famous will be playing and the cast of ‘No Retreat, No Surrender’ will be judging the best zine on the night.
Note: There will be an after party/free for all in the alley outside the building. It will be in 3D so bring your own glasses.
Where? The Brewhouse, just off Lan Kwai Fong in Central [I think].
When? Sat 9th March, 8pm
Why? For the love of zines
Will Susan Sarandon be there? No.
