It’s hard to find places that are more badass than ABC No Rio. They started out as an illegal art exhibition, and has turned into one of the biggest zine libraries in the country. (They also have a darkroom and silkscreening facilities at very reasonable rates). For the past six months, a series of events for Hanging Out at ABC No Rio for artists to come and explore its history and future. Tonight is the final event, and it’s a discussion about independent publishing in the real and digital world. The panelists are a wide range of underground comic artists, zinesters and contemporary artists. Whether you’ve been making zines since you could work a copy machine or if you still try to add an apostrophe to the word “zine,” you should check it out.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
