Coffee & Muffins Anyone: Meeting TOMORROW 7/13 @ Knockbox from 2-4 p.m.

Thanks for you patience with our hiatus. We’ve got a lot in store
for the coming weeks.

Won’t you join us tomorrow, SATURDAY 7/13 for a leisurely afternoon of
coffee, quips and sewing (yes, sewing,) over at KNOCKBOX CAFE (at the corner of Augusta and California in Humboldt Park)? SPOCsters will be posting up from 2-4 p.m. Among the exciting things we’ll be working on:planning our July CHIPRC social, making a brand new banner for the SPOC table and stapling and folding our zine surplus.

Here’s what’s in store for us in the near future:

Next TUESDAY 7/16 SPOCsters Nicki Yowell and Liz Mason will be reading at North Center’s lit extravaganza. Won’t you join us at Black Rock Pub at 8:30 p.m.

 SPOC will be tabling at DC Zine Fest in our nation’s capital on July 20. Yes, we’re taking this thing to the land of lobbying and bald eagles and partisan politics and immense sequestering. The aforementioned sign will debut at the fest.

SPOCster Eric Bartholomew, our junk drawer aficianado, presents a workshop over at CHIPRC on Wednesday July 24 @ 7 p.m. 

SPOC Social @ CHIPRC: A lot is popping off at CHIPRC this month, you guys. We present our next social, a games and snacks fun fest, from 7-9:30 p.m. on Thursday July 25. Clancy’s and charades for all.

WORDS & SOUND III: a SPOC Benefit at Peanut Gallery: The third edition of Words & Sound will bring image to the equation. We’re throwing our first official benefit with a pantheon of readers paired with musicians and sound artists. This go-around artists also have the option of incorporating video and visual art during the show. Mark your calendar for FRIDAY, AUGUST 2.The action kicks off around 7/8 p.m. We’re still working on specifics. Among our confirmed performers are Stephanie Colunga, Robin Hustle, Nicki Yowell and Grant Reynolds.

Artisanal donuts, vast swaths of vinyl, misty fog and, for one weekend only, SPOC! On August 10-11 SPOC will join legions of zinesters and self-publishers from around the world to table at one of the country’s largest displays of zine-i-tude.
Our neighbors to the north have more hills than us, Founder’s brewery and a kick ass zine fest that makes the jaunt worth it all. Instead of that harvested deer, strap some zines to your snowmobile  and head up with us to Grand Rapids on SATURDAY AUGUST 24.
