Have you heard about Montréal's totally self-service DIY tiny gallery? 48 square feet of zines, small press comix, puppets, recorded music, modern folk art, and more! Built in a small 3-seasons porch in Little Italy. I'll be displaying an evolving series of unexpected bite-sized exhibitions over the course of this summer. Complete with an honor-system gift shop. Open Saturdays & Sundays only, 9am-9pm. Secret location; please send a T-mail for more info... ;)

'EMERALD MOON' Soundtrack Release Gig

The musical soundtrack to the 'Emerald Moon Over Dirty Lake' picture-book is now finally available, and we're playing this show to celebrate & commemorate! The Auroratones, an audio/visual project featuring central member Ivan Klipstein will be performing the latest "Musicomix"... original songs performed live in-synch with original comics & drawings which illustrate the musical stories. A short but very sweet performance at a responsible hour, it'll be from 6-7 PM. Copies of the book & all our other comics, musical recordings, and combinations thereof will be on display & available for sale as well... The music can now be heard (and downloaded for free by book owners) here... We hope to see you there!
