If you’d like a copy of otherXcore #3 and like to do things old-school, mail $2 (or a check or money order for $2, made out to Samantha Retton) to PO box 391, Madera, CA 93639. I’ll send you a copy in return ASAP.
To anyone who’s been waiting on a trade from me: spring break starts next week and I’m planning to get caught up on all of my mail (and papers for school) during the vacation, since I can’t afford to do anything else.
And finally, if you never have before, check out Outlook! They’re an amazing radical female-fronted hardcore band from Olympia, WA. They’ve played Fresno a handful of times, including tonight, and every single time, I’m astounded at how great they are, how much people get into them, and how rad they are as people. They’re the best people to share vegan food, Cactus Coolers, and zines with. They’re on a huge seven-week US tour, and if they’re playing anywhere near you, I highly suggest checking them out. There aren’t enough women in hardcore, and bands that tackle issues like homelessness, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, gentrification, and things like that can be hard to find.
