No Biggie City #1
No Biggie City #1, early early spring 2013, Olympia, WA was mailed to me in mid March and I read it just yesterday, at the end of April. It floated around in my backpack for a while... Visually it's chaotic and stimulating, which turned me off initially, but it actually wasn't difficult to read.
I say no music zines and this borders on music zine--there's something about the band Dogjaw, an essay with lots of pics about show flyers, and an interview with one of the organizers of Queer Rock Camp. That's a lot of music-related stuff. But I still liked it a lot.
This zine has a good energy about it. There are a lot of good feelings and intelligence in it. I feel like the people who worked on it are interesting and full of life. Reading this zine made me feel happy. I read it all in one sitting and by the time I was done felt happy about humanity and wished I could be friends with them.
Other than music-related stuff, there's work about animal rights and harm reduction. I love art, but often I'm immune to the art in zines. But these animal drawings were really good.
Nothing's boring. It's all unpretentious and fun to read. So rock on, No Biggie City. May all zine blessings come to you.
