Best Show Ever: A Celebration of Live DIY Music
$ 6.00

Written and assembled during the pandemic as a way to remember how intimate and celebratory live, small-scale, do-it-yourself shows can be, Best Show Ever brings together nearly 20 voices and distinct experiences. Scenes from all over the U.S., basements and yards and art spaces, makeshift stages, day-long festivals, shows from the 1990s, shows from just before things shut down. All collected here.

As it says on the first page: "This zine is a love letter to the basements and community spaces that felt like home. The songs that lived on mix tapes and CDs in our headphones and in our hearts, right up until the moment we got to yell the words in person, with a bunch of smiling strangers. This zine is dedicated to the bands and crowds that made us feel less alone. a nod to some of the best nights of our lives. This zine is for you."

With words from: Marigold, Colleen Fitzgerald, Jonquil Moore, Diego Romero-Aros, Julia Koschler, Toria Muñoz, Jackie Snyder, Ian Vanek, Peyton Kuzel, Shannon, Dakota Floyd, Joshua Hoey, Johnny Gainer, Shannon Bodrogi, Chris, Dandy Decipher, Dylan Gregor, Alyssa Giannini, and Rachel Jackson.

32 pages, half-letter size.
