We Don't Need No Maga 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2008
The do-it-yourself counterculture continues to protest the idea that artists need large amounts of money to be creative. From stenciling sidewalks to setting up renegade concerts to photocopying literature, many people prefer to cut out the middleman and express themselves to the masses directly. The S.F. Zine Fest is an annual gathering of like-minded people who hope to keep independent and underground publishing alive. The festival has grown over the last six years, but its emphasis is still on small-circulation, unbound books — zines. AK Press, Cutter Photozine, and cartoonist Michael Capozzola are just a few of the more than 100 DIY creators selling and trading their artwork at this year’s new location in Golden Gate Park. Aside from the chance to stroll around picking up inspiration, you can take in workshops, a nature walk, and a documentary film screening, ending the day with a big game of DIY kickball.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
