Long Beach Zine Fest! ~ Free Event this Sunday

LBZineFest2015
The Long Beach Zine Fest is a one-day free event promoting zines and zine culture and will be the first independent-publishing expo of its kind in the city. The festival will bring together more than 100 writers, designers, cartoonists, photographers, artists, and DIY advocates from Long Beach and
surrounding cities who believe in the power of print as a viable artistic medium in today's web-centric
world. 

L.A. Taco is proud to announce that we'll have a table at this event thanks to our Events photographer Erwin Recinos who self publishes as "Metro Anonymous". Make sure you stop by his table and say hello while you browse through our latest publications. Other table's we're looking forward to checking out are As Issued, La Chamba Press, Applesauce Industries, Sleep Talk Press, Valerie J. Bower, and Yvette Aispuro. Remember the event is all ages and free from 11am to 5pm this Sunday!

Historically, zines (short for “magazine” or “fanzine”) were half-letter size, spine-stapled paper goods
used by underground communities in the pre-internet age to spread information quickly and portably.
The term is used today to describe a wide range of handmade, self-published print-based items.
The Long Beach Zine Fest will feature an open zine marketplace where attendees can browse and
purchase chapbooks, comics, graphic novels and zines directly from their creators. The event also
features a full schedule of do-it-yourself workshops and discussion panels in the Museum’s art studio
and screening room — where attendees can learn about the process and history of zines — as well as
live performances from Long Beach-based bands throughout the day.
Admission to the Long Beach Zine Fest and MOLAA is free to the public as part of MOLAA’s Free
Sundays, sponsored by Target.

These Nayarit-Style, Ceviche-Stuffed ‘MarisCocos’ in Compton Taste Just As Good As They Do On the Beach

Each young coconut is macheted to order and imported from Colima. The tender meat is mixed in with the ceviche and its refreshing coconut water is served in a plastic bag. They are about the size of basketball and weigh five pounds—at least. It's officially summertime in Los Angeles!
