Make it Small
How Punk Responded to the Deadly Concerts of the ’60s and ’70s.
by Kevin Mattson — from Slate.com
This rehumanization of rock led some to see the wall between performer and audience falling, most obviously when a kid scrambled onto the stage, made physical contact with a performer, and then “stage-dived” back onto the floor. (The stage—and there was often none—was usually no more than 3 feet high.) One writer in Seattle explained that when a singer “took the stage, we knew at once that he was one of us. It wasn’t Him the Singer and Us the Audience. We were united.”
That statement was found in one of many zines that the movement produced over the years. Zines expressed the DIY predilection probably even more than collectively run shows did. It was within Xeroxed, stapled, and cutup zines that young readers learned about previous and forthcoming shows, what records had been released, who was on tour. (There were also wheat-pasted flyers that announced shows, many with quite intricate illustrations—some of the best being Raymond Pettibon’s flyers for the band Black Flag.) Sometimes zine producers commented on politics, especially within the pages of Ripper and Maximum Rocknroll. Zines created a network, with kids bartering and trading them through the postal system. And it was in a zine (the D.C.-based Truly Needy) that John Stabb, lead singer of the band Government Issue, reflected on how grateful he was that small shows had allowed him to “avoid arena concerts.”

The Latest News on our new San Francisco Location
We’re in the decidedly un-sexy part of reopening the SF theater in our new North Beach space — it’s called Permitting.
But, we’re moving through the process, the paperwork, the meetings, the running around town, and we are making progress.
We talk about the loss of many things in 2020, but one thing that was often a staple at our shows in now g-o-n-e — GONE.
The long line for the bathroom.
That’s right, in our new space we will have not just one, but TWO ADA accessible restrooms and zero loooong lines during intermission.
Your donations are making the new SF Theater a reality!
Thanks to everyone who donated recently and, if you haven’t, yet, please consider contributing to our End of Year Fundraiser.
Thank you — we can’t do this without you!!
