#diy4lyfe is proud to announce it’s first print issue, to be released on March 22nd, 2014! In celebration we are throwing a zine release house show in Anaheim with some bands that are gonna be featured in this issue!
Isaac is kind enough to let us use his house to throw a real shindig, uniting North and South with some of the greatest underground bands in Orange County. You don’t wanna miss this if yer in Socal, trust me! We will be selling some dehydrated fruit and beef jerky at the show as well so come YUM it up!
Fugue - Local post-punkers channeling the spirit of Fugazi and the Pacific Northwest circa 1992. These guys went on tour this winter and became a live unit tighter than a nucleus!
Pedestrian - Emo influenced post-rock dorks, rippin’ yer face off with riffs. Their powerful live show will blow you away- these guys are destined for greatness!
Kip - Twinkle-daddies wearing their hearts and emo influences on their sleeve. This up and coming young group are getting more solid show by show, don’t miss them!
Sam Windsor and the Rainy Day Fund - idiosyncratic singer-songwriter lamenting the suburban life backed by a bunch of weirdos. Sam’s songwriting is unique and his backing band is sure to be a bricolage of folksy instrumentation.
If you like soul and disco, you don’t wanna miss our Special Guests, who will be teaching the Hustle to the crowd and bringing the funk!
The zine will be on sale at the show and include a limited edition button/patch set for the low, low price of $2. We will also have a package that includes a cassette featuring some of the bands and tracks mentioned in the zine. There are only 15 cassettes available and the package includes the button/patch set all for $5-$10, pay what you can, to help cover printing costs!
The zine will be for sale online as well, $1 for a PDF download and $5 for a hardcopy that includes multiple buttons as well as the limited edition patch and shipping.
The zine will feature interviews from musicians like Stephen Steinbrink, Joe DeGeorge of Harry and the Potters, Logan Greene, iji, and Roman Candles as well as reviews of some recent records by bands like The Yellow Dress, Dogbreth, Mega Bog, Pitschouse, Ashley Eriksson, Pedestrian, and Fugue. There will also be some recipes for infused liquors, dehydrated fruits, beef jerky as well as a smattering of contributions from local Orange County-ites. The cover is being designed by local artist Beverly Salas!
Come join us in Anaheim on March 22nd at 7pm! Hope to see you there, and if you can’t come I hope you can get a copy of the zine online/in the mail! It will be sold thru an online store and distro’d through some local labels as well as some local Orange County record stores (hopefully!).
