After a long, long break, I updated the bibliography section to include the following intriguing resources: a list of zines (about DIY houses/venues, touring, safer spaces), a list of movies about American DIY houses/venues, and a list of my own academic writings about American DIY spaces and scenes.

Finally, a new issue of HouseShowsZine! There are essays/papers (one about Davis, CA, show houses by Rob Roy, one about senses and house shows by Gray Newlin, and one about house shows in general, by Benjamin Morey), an interview (Nate Allen, interviewed by Benjamin Morey), a poem by Gray Newlin, and fresh links to websites (among them, links of youtube videos from house shows/show houses in Portland, links to several festivals that include houses as venues, and links to plenty of interesting guerrilla and unconventional shows around the US …). I hope you will enjoy it! Expect more in the following months, and perhaps contribute your own stuff!
