Sorry for the delay but here are some photos from the First Night in Los Angeles. Our first night was at Eastside Cafe in El Sereno. Zinesters were on hand tabling and selling their products. Bands were there playing for the crowd. It was a night of firsts for our event and we hope to replicate this with more bands and zinesters.

Mexicali: Day Two

For night two of our Zinefest  Internacional event was set at Mexicali Rose just under a mile away from the U.S. border. We were given the grand tour by our host, Marco Vera. We were given an oral history of how this place has been a corner stone of the community. You could feel the weight of the past and what an honor it was to hold our art exchange from both countries here.
