Sean Carnage's regular Monday night, cutting-edge concert series at Pehrspace is booked in honor of L.A. Zine Fest this week, and the lineup is enticing: L.A. bands Exorcisms, Spokenest and French Vanilla, along with Riverside's Mothers of Gut and Cleveland's Pleasure Leftists. In addition to the musical offerings, zine auteur/L.A. Zine Fest co-founder Simon Sotelo has wrangled writers and poets from local collective the WOMEN to share their work between sets. The event benefits the next Zine Fest event, set to take place Feb. 16 at Helms Bakery in Culver City. Pay attention to these folks and pick up some paperbacks to throw in the faces of anyone who has the nerve to say Los Angeles doesn't have a cultural scene beyond movie studios and eyelash implants. All ages. Pehrspace, 325 Glendale Blvd., Historic Filipinotown; Mon., Sept. 23, 9 p.m.-mid.; $7. (213) 483-7347,

Mon., Sept. 23, 9 p.m., 2013
