Two new stories from Chattanooga punk house “Anarchtica,” describing the stresses and obligations of running a DIY venue. In this issue, the basement where the shows are held is described in intimate detail, the extension cords constantly blowing fuses to the house upstairs, water heaters and pipes in consistent danger of being broken from dancing and raucous shows, and of course the bathroom situation. One that any punk knows is always an… adventure when you run a show or attend a show at a punk house. A second story tells of several interactions dealing with cops being called on the punk house because of the noise, or cars being “improperly” parked on the streets. The futility of a cop trying to break up a punk show over and over was an interesting read, and the persistence to run this venue and house is admirable. Flyers for several shows are interspersed throughout the design as well. –Tricia Ramos ($pare ¢hange, PO Box 6023, Chattanooga, TN 37401)
