I’d like to thank all the bands as well as everybody who attended our benefit show this past Friday! It was an amazing event — all of the bands sounded great and the turnout could not have been better. After helping the bands out with gas money, the show ended up raising over $500 for the Zine Library!

*For those who couldn’t attend, here’s where you can check out the bands:

Shook Ones, Tigers Jaw, Save Ends, Maura

Preserving Our Collection

TAGS: None

As Papercut inches closer and closer to reaching our 15,000th zine, we librarians are having more and more trouble keeping those zines clean and organized! As you may know, when we moved into our Inman Square location we decided to store around 2/3 of our collection in the basement. Although it is a clean and productive space, it is still a basement; full of dust and moisture that are simply not conducive to keeping aging periodicals.

This, dear patrons and zinesters, is where you come in!

If you have any of the following items, or ideas for helping to preserve our precious collection, please let us know! You can come in during open hours, or email us at Papercut(at)riseup(dot)net.

-Polypropeline or comic sleeves
-Stationary boxes (with lids)
-Comic or magazine boxes (with lids)
-Dustbuster (or other smallish vacuum)

Thanks so much for any leads/donations/etc! <3

Thanks to Closed Door Fanzine!

TAGS: None

The latest issue of Closed Door Fanzine was released this past Friday at the Democracy Center in Harvard Square. This zine features photos of hardcore bands from Massachusetts taken by my dear friend, Tim O’connell. The release show featured some of Boston’s finest hardcore bands, with a few surprise sets throughout the night! Thanks to everyone who came out and played in support of awesome zines and the library that showcases them. Door donations were split between bands, Closed Door, and also served as a benefit for the zine library — helping us to pay a whole month’s rent! So thanks to everyone who came out and donated to this — it is greatly appreciated :)

For info on how to get a copy of Closed Door Fanzine, email Tim – timoconnell5(at)yahoo.com
