Necromancers of the Public Domain – March 20!

Girl Scout Camp

It’s the second installment of my new performance series at the Tank! Each month, we pluck a long forgotten volume from the shelves of the New York Society Library and resurrect it as a low budget variety show.

Get some culture. Get some beer.

This month Campward Ho!

Tuesday, March 20, 2018, 7pm, at The Tank, NYC

Someone has said, “We camp to live with Nature.” If living is knowing, let us then while we camp, learn to know the great out-of-doors, and at the same time take advantage of being together, and learn to live as Scouts. The information given is the result of experience gained not only as a camp Director and a housekeeper, but as a co-worker with hundreds of Scouts whose needs are very real.

Nick Balaban (Blues Clues / Musician around town)

Ellia Bisker (Charming Disaster / Sweet Soubrette)

Debra Castellano (CitizenDeb.com / Waste Management: The Show)

Necromancers of the Public Domain – February

 

Seek refuge from cruel, dark winter with the Necromancers of the Public Domain. Each month, we pluck a long forgotten volume from the shelves of the New York Society Library and resurrect it as a low budget variety show.

Get some culture. Get some beer.

This month: Masterpieces in Colour: Bastien Lepage (1911)

“There are certain beings who bear the stamp of the divine seal and are preordained to receive the higest favours within the gift of glory; they are fated to pass through life like those brilliant meteors which are seen to flash across the heavens and disappear in the same instant. Bastien-Lepage was one of those meteors.”

Celebrate Ayun Halliday Day 2016

BUY A ZINE

 

Ex-Circulation Manager Jambo has asked me to tell all you nice people that the VERY BEST way you can observe Ayun Halliday Day tomorrow would be to buy a zine.

If you have never read an issue of The East Village Inky, March 29 would be a particularly auspicious day to order a back issue, subscribe, renew a lapsed subscription or lay a gift sub on an unsuspecting friend.

Or venture into the unknown by ordering one of the hundreds, nay thousands of titles by my fellow travelers. Go straight to the source on etsy, or support one of the independent book and zine sellers who have supported the Inky over the years. Take yer pick:

Quimby’s Bookstore,
Atomic Books,
Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery,
Women & Children First Bookstore,
Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center
Microcosm Publishing
Parcell Press
Birdcage Bottom Books
MonkeyWrench Books
City Lights Bookstore
Meltdown Comics and Collectibles

If you can’t browse in person, order online. That’s what the Internet’s for, son!

Take to social media and tell us what you got. Virtual zine party March 29, wahoooo!!!

Cat Vs. Radiator

Thanks to Narratively for publishing one of my all-time favorite stories in comic form. (Not quite so funny while ex-Circulation Manager Jambo and I were living through it)
