INCOMPLETE HISTORY OF LONG GONE PUNK VENUES IN BOSTON FROM 2000 TO 2015, AN, $10, 5½” x 8½”, 40 pgs.

Boston scene guy Chris Strunk chronicles basements, halls, houses, and other semi- or outright illegal show spots. No zine like this can ever be complete, as Chris notes, but it’s pretty darn thorough despite the obvious pitfalls. (I do have to say, though, some of the Allston shows are misidentified as being in Lower Allston: L.A. is on the other side of the Mass Pike, over the footbridge. Okay, I’ll stop now.) Memories of specific shows throughout the era add color to the listings for folks who live out of town and might not know the venues in question. Some great photos by Jonah Livingston and thee Al Quint, too. Every town should have a zine like this devoted to it. –Michael T. Fournier (timdevin.com)
