Tonight: The BOMB goes off

BOMB Issue Release Party at Galapagos
16 Main St. in DUMBO
Doors at 7, show at 8

Magazines, newspapers, and publications are disappearing overnight these days, but BOMB is one of the few that will be sticking around. Why? Because it's format is unique to the genre. There are (sadly, for me) no writers involved (except for fiction and poetry) -- it's nothing but cross-pollination -- artists interviewing musicians, musicians interviewing get the idea.

Not to mention, what magazine has a FREE issue release party at Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO, Brooklyn, featuring cabaret performers and acrobats? Another case in point, what magazine can boast one of its contributing editors to be Matthea Harvey, a miraculous POET who recently won the $100,000 (no, that is not a typo) Kingsley-Tufts Poetry Award for her latest book Modern Life? And also happened to teach a course based, in part, on the poetry of the graphic novel at Sarah Lawrence College? (I know, I took it.)

The BOMB gang will be celebrating the release of its Summer Issue 108 and 28 years of greatness TONIGHT at 7, so I had to give a last-minute plug.
