What kind of gifts do you give? 'I always give books. And I always ask for books. I think you should reward people sexually for getting you books. Don’t send a thank-you note, repay them with sexual activity. If the book is rare or by your favorite author or one you didn’t know about, reward them with the most perverted sex act you can think of. Otherwise, you can just make out.'

BROS FALL BACK is a zine i first stumbled upon this year at Ladyfest Philly. it is a great and important read - it talks about the sorts of deep embedded normalized oppressive behavior we all encounter on the regular. it deconstructs the influence of capitalism and social currency on identity and how that affects interactions within the context of punk shows — but really, shows are like little microcosms of the world at large, so in a way i feel like everything in this zine can be seen as just an example of over-arching dynamics that exist elsewhere in the world too. i’d advise anyone/everyone to keep that in mind, read thru this PDF, and then re-consider the sort of space they take up, whether that be physically at a show, or in conversations (that may or may not have anything to do with punk or shows or music at all) and also in communities (whether those be friends, families, neighbors, music scenes, co-workers, etc.) you can find a PDF of BROS FALL BACK right here.
Made this flyer, playing this show!
