Three decades ago, Darby Romeo published the zine Ben Is Dead in Los Angeles and, with her intrepid crew of writers and musicians, single-handedly changed the face of America’s subculture. To celebrate, the Ben Is Dead 30th-anniversary party — coming on the heels of Romeo’s birthday party at Cafe NELA on Friday and the Saturday symposium “The Zine Explosion Archived!” at UCLA — brings together some of Ben Is Dead’s favorite people and musicians that it has supported and nurtured over the years. To wit: JFA, Skatenigs, Savage Republic, Popdefect, WACO, Glen Meadmore, John Trubee, Hepa-Titus, 11:11 (ex-Fluorescein), Superbean and a surprise band. It’s a weekend of adventures that will make you misty for a time when no one really knew anything, everyone had to wait for important news, and every issue of Ben Is Dead was twinkling, revelatory and cataclysmic.
