Hardcore Punk Photo Exhibit @Papercut, Opening 3/20

Tags: , , , , ,

Papercut will be hosting it’s very first photography exhibit, curated by your’s truly! (ahem, Kimberly speaking; resident hardcore-punk enthusiast/zine librarian…)

Reid Haithcock, Dan “Future-Breed” Gonyea, Angela Owens, Todd Pollock  and Tim O’Connell will all be showing photos they’ve taken at shows in (and around) Massachusetts. Prints might be available as well for anyone interested, with a portion of the proceeds going towards PZL.

Angela Owens has also produced a zine for this event, “Hardcore Paparazzi,” which will be available for $2 this month at Papercut, featuring her own  photos as well as some of Dan and Reid’s.

The opening/Zine Release is next Sunday, 3pm-8pm. There will be  rootbeer floats and snacks, of course. I’ll also be raffling off a gift certificate to Armageddon, a new punk Record Store in Harvard Square! Zine readings, storytelling and of course our favorite hardcore records will be played throughout the event. This is completely free, and participation is encouraged!

If you can’t make the opening, the show will be up from this week until April 11, and the library is open from 2pm-7pm Saturday, Sunday and Monday. If you want to come on a weekday, drop me a line and I’ll gladly open the library for a group if I’m around. The artists are very proud of what they put up, and it’s the first time most of them have ever shown their photos in this way, so please come out and support them!

–We also have a bunch of hardcore zines which will be on display
throughout the month, all of which can be checked out or simply read at
the library. Everything from current/2000′s to classics ranging back from
the early 1980′s. Local and international. Seriously, these don’t get
looked at nearly enough compared to the other categories, in my opinion,
and I’m adding new stuff every day.

More info, and the ability to RSVP to this event can be found on Facebook

Or you can send us a message and we’ll get back to you shortly after.

Hope to see you soon!

Rifraktions Recap

TAGS: None

Our event Saturday was a hit! Thanks to the Rifrakt Collective for bringing some amazing artwork to our walls and music to our space.

If you couldn’t make it on Saturday, their artwork will be on our walls for about a month. Be sure to come by, and pick up one of their zines while you’re here!

There are more photos of the event on our Facebook. Pictured here are Sway, who also performed!

Thanks again to everyone for coming out.

We ALSO had a wonderful little benefit last night at our old spot in Harvard Square. It was very last minute, so I apologize for not getting it up on this blog in time.

Our friends, Wounded Knees, played with some new favorites: Chris North, Nick Leonard, and The New and Very Welcome. We raised some greatly needed funds at both of these events, and would like to thank you all for your ongoing support.

Hope to see you all soon, and stay tuned for future events!

Not Your Typical Library: A Sprout Spaghetti Dinner

Tags: ,

We are honored to be presenting at our very first Sprout Dinner!

Sorry about the late notice, but we just weren’t sure about the snow.

We all know what public libraries are and that they’re in trouble. Even in Somerville, we’re hearing about the funding battles and support campaigns underway. At this month’s sprout spaghetti dinner, we’re going to look at a different set of libraries and library services–not your typical libraries. Maybe they don’t traffic in books; maybe they aren’t run by the government; maybe they’re just bookcases in someone’s living room. Whatever it is that sets these libraries apart, we want to hear their stories and how they handle issues that we traditionally associate with Public Libraries: access, censorship, safety, sharing, curation, and more.

Our performers will include ::
+ Sara Peattie and The Puppet Free Library
+ Heather McCann and The Boston Radical Reference Collective
+ personal monologues sharing small-scale libraries in people’s homes and workplaces
+ Anna Mudd and other members of The Papercut Zine Library
+ with music from The Moondog Madrigal & The Spaghetti Dinner House Band

We sincerely hope that you can make it out, in spite of the snow! (You do not want to miss our dance routine…)

SNOW DAY

Tags: ,

We will not be open for library services OR our weekly meeting tomorrow, due to snow. Sorry for the inconvenience! If you need to return zines, you can put ‘em in the drop slot. Otherwise we’ll be back to normal on Saturday.

Take care and enjoy the snow!!!!
