It was a parade of old punks and the young dorks who admire them at zinester turned legit author Dishwasher Pete’s reading last night at Needles & Pens. San Francisco-born Pete had us hanging on his every word, just like he always has. Part storyteller like Aaron Cometbus and part historian like Iggy Scam aka Erick Lyle, he’s got that dry, interesting white guy allure. And as suspected, he is cute. We’ve always figured he was, since reading between the lines of the old zines, you can kind of conclude that’s why all those pretty young girls were always hanging around.
