The organizers of L.A. Zine Fest set up the event, and my dear friend Bianca Barragan asked me to moderate the panel.
My friends in Arizona who have had their bands trashed by Jimmy will be pleased to know that during his introduction, I called him out on it, though quite lightheartedly. They'll also be happy to know that Jimmy said later in the night that there's a lot of good music that has come from Phoenix.
Bianca and I agreed after the event, we do not want it to be the last of its kind. I hope I will be holding the microphone again for another ZINE TABLE and I look forward to finding out who will pull up a chair.
Thanks to Bianca, Simon, Meredith, Robey, Todd, Jimmy, Adrian, Daryl, everybody who asked questions or came up to introduce themselves, and all the staff and audience at The Pop-Hop.
