ANTIGRAVITY: Your New Orleans Music & Culture Alternative is proud to announce its ALTERNATIVE MEDIA EXPO is set for Saturday, August 19th at the Howlin’ Wolf!
The AME is in its fifth edition (four twice-a-year events from 6/03-4/05 make up its previous rounds) and features over 50 exhibitors with ‘zines, comics, films, handmade and original clothing, independent CDs and records, indie and grassroots organizations and much more!
The AME is sponsored by the Charitable Film Network, Dirty Coast, The New Orleans Craft Mafia and NOLAFugees.com. The first 250 attendees will receive a swag bag created by the Craft Mafia.
The special guest of the Expo is Treme-based writer Mat Schwarzman, author of The Beginner’s Guide To Community-Based Arts.
The AME is modeled after national comic conventions, like San Diego’s Comic-Con but more like San Francisco’s Alternative Press Expo, but with other types of media included. The point of the Expo is to provide media makers an opportunity to network while exposing attendees to product and another things that mainstream media either ignores or doesn’t properly cover.
When: Saturday, August 19th, 4pm-10pm
Where: The Howlin’ Wolf (907 South Peters)

I have sincere doubts whether i’m going, as i’m quite excited about canoeing on the Bogue Chitto this Saturday, but maybe i can fit both in. I’d rather canoe though, as i’m an antisocial bastard that will likely walk into the joint, look around 10 minutes, then drive that hour and a half back home. We shall see…
