It's 2018, everybody
So happy flippin' new year! For our first show of 2018, we're pleased to host a few East Falls Zine Reading Room favorites and some exciting newcomers as well. Come to our place on January 27th from 2-5 to hear the West Philly postpunk band Rabbits to Riches, the delicate folk songs of Potential Gospel, and the work of poet and fiction writer Oki Sogumi and poet and arts journalist Amanda Silberling. You'll get a sneak of Joe Carlough's music/video work in progress, and Katie Haegele will debut her new zine, "Dear Everybody." Also, the zine library has gotten an overhaul and should be easier than ever for you to browse. THIS IS SHAPING UP TO BE QUITE THE EVENT.
Please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for the address.
Parking on our street is free, and we're located around the corner from the East Falls train station and half a block up from the K, R, and 61 buses on Ridge Avenue.
As always, we hope to see you here.

Woah! I'll be performing at the next EFZRR event, and here's something: I'll be reading some brand new poetry, showing pixel art gifs, and playing eerie soundscape music while it's all happening. There will be other performers (some readers, some music), and there will be snacks and beers! More info when the flier goes live.
