Suburban Nightmare: Punk in OC Zine Release!

October 1, 2014 in Downtown Fullerton Art Walk


You are invited the the next art show + zine release at BOOKMACHINE books + zines entitled “Suburban Nightmare: Punk in OC.” This zine, originally released in 2010, gives a brief history of the bands, venues, artwork, and style that was and is Orange County punk rock.

The zine highlights the rich history of punk counter-culture in Orange County, and its continued relevance today. Orange County has stereotypes of conservative politics, affluence, and materialism. However, this show represents the presence of an underground culture that arose in direct antagonism to these stereotypes, and how that underground exists today. The zine seeks to question prevailing cultural attitudes, and presents an alternative attitude of free expression.

On display, will be old and new school punk flyers and LP art from the collections of Jesse La Tour and Stephan Baxter. See you there!
