One of the first of these alliances takes place next weekend with the AntiFolk UK Autumn Festival (Friday 20th – Saturday 21st November) in London’s Soho, an evening of music from the Anti-Folk UK collective. A zine friendly event, Alternative Press will have a table or two to sell zines and comix. Also, self publishers who come to sell will receive a discount of £2 off daily ticket price (so, £4 rather than £6).
Plus, who could miss comic creato Jimi Gherkin playing some sounds, along with the Tuscan Troubadour, Trent Miller and The Skeleton Jive?
The AntiFolk event is at the 12 Bar Club, Denmark Street, Soho, London WC2H 8NL
