Anno Domini presents Underskatement this Friday, April 22, 2005. The doors open at 8pm, film screens at 9pm sharp. Admission is $5 at the door.
Underskatement is a traveling exhibit of short films made by skateboarders. This year the films have been shown all over the United States as well as Canada, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia. It is composed of all types of films--narrative, experimental, documentary and political.
UnderSkatement is a forum to showcase the natural creativity of skateboarders; it is not just a collection of skate videos, but rather hopes to show all the other things that make up a skater's life.
David Choe has his first "real" exhibit in NY entitled "Tokyo Prison Art" at Power House Gallery on Friday April 22, 2005 at 6pm until close. David says: "I wanted to hold off on this show until I had collected all my sketches and thoughts into a publication of some sort. But that will have to wait. I'm not in such a big hurry to revisit all my jail time memories. I just got all my XXX rated prison drawings and paintings I did with soy sauce and my piss, using the tip of my socks."
Good luck David - wish we could be there!

The Alternative Press Expo is this weekend, April 9 &10th at the Concourse SF. This is one of our favorite yearly events....better than Comic Con because of it's DIY vibe. Indie publishers of comics and zines are present at their own tables ready to tell you all about their work without an Ewok in site.
The Qeeology fair is this Sunday, April 10th at the Pasadena Conference Center. If you're one of those that find these little buggers addictive, you should be able to get your fix....and it's free!
