Bizoo’s editors and trouble makers from Queensland are heading to Rizzeria’s Pop Up Show! Breaking the mould of traditional and often stale book launches.

The State of DIY in Sydney in 2014 will run from 7:00pm till 8:00pm. Panellists include: Leigh Rigozzi (http://www.bloodandthunder.com.au/), Shaun Tenzenmen (http://tenzenmen.com/), Kimb (http://octopuspi.com/) and Rachel Button (www.facebook.com/pissfactoryzine), Fez (Got Caught Stealing Zine) and Miss Helen http://www.spycore.net/. The session with be facilitated by Dr Jerm (Bizoo, ZICS) and Elouise Quinlivan (Smells Like Zines, Anablogue).

This panel gives local perspectives and presents different approaches to do-it-yourself and do-it-together ethics that have seen music, zines, books, wheat pastes, festivals, graffiti and protest move public opinion and allow a voice for those yet unspoken for. This is a social event, it’s not the “big wigs” sitting out front and talking at you. Come along and make some new friends and start collaborating!

Not only do punters get the free Bizoo retrospective book, but they also get to engage with interactive and make a postcard sized created by Sydney’s own Miss Helen on a Gocco Printing Machine. Gocco printing originated in Japan and is a mix of traditional screen and pressure printing, but without the mess usually associated with screen printing. Miss Helen’s print will only available on the night!, so show up or miss out.

Plus The Covers of Bizoo Exhibition featuring cover artists: Ken Taylor, Rowan Tedge, Milly Loveknuckles, Simon Degroot.

Coinciding with the launch, The Rizzeria Go for Gold (ink) Pozible Campaign with end on the same day. We’ll count down the hours and fingers crossed, celebrate its success!

TRANSPORT
Unless you can get a ride back or going to stay the night I do not recommend public transport. Now you can feel my pain whenever I want to socialize.

FOOD
There will be food made by my old folks on the night. Homemade burritos and nachos with vegan options too. It will cost money but it will go towards sending packed clothes to Chile so all for a good cause. Alternatively, you can travel out to IGA, KFC, Maccas, Hungry Jacks or any of the kebab and burgers places that will be open till a certain time. Feel free to bring your own food too if you wish

CAMPING
Yes, you can camp here. Got plenty of acreage to go around. Bring your own gear.

OTHER INFO
There will be a donation box up. It’s not compulsory but it would be really appreciated if you can donate a few coins. I did a CD compilation last time but I don’t think I’ll do it again this year unless you guys really want to.

BYO booze and doobs just no smoking inside. Feel free to invite people that will respect the house and people so no dickheads, please. Please don’t nick any money bands have made from merch. Stealing from local bands is low.

Without sounding like a dick there is somewhat of a capacity limit but i don’t know how many people i can keep inside. Bring friends and lovers but leave your entourage at home.

There will be an esky and a fridge available but it’s probably best to bring your own just in case.

If you want to bring your distro to sell some stuff you’re more than welcome to.

If in the very unlikely chance that it rains on the day then the Acoustic Tree will be an Acoustic Indoors thing. Its going to be fucked if it does rain though

My dogs are not very people friendly due to them not being city dogs. They will be kept inside but if you see them out and they go berserk and you freak out then it’s best to remove yourself.

MY STUFF
Don’t thrash it, please. No jumping off the TV. You’re welcomed to sling couches at bands though

I DON’T EVEN LIKE MUSIC AYE
I’ll have a Nintendo 64 hooked up. I’m no fool man I got all the top multiplayer games. Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, Goldeneye, F Zero X, Super Smash Bros, you know the deal.

I DON’T LIKE VIDEO GAMES EITHER
Then go pat Tina or something.

GOAT
Yes, I really do have a pet goat. Her name is Tina. No heavy petting.

Primitive Calculators

35 years after they first crawled out of dark, suburban Springvale to spew their synth-punk filth over Melbourne and beyond, Primitive Calculators have made their first-ever studio album, aptly entitled The World Is F@#ked.

Bleaker, harsher and more desperately hilarious than ever, Primitive Calculators have created the ultimate aural statement of ageing, despair and futility. The new album pulls no punches across its nine one-word songs. The sound is a kind of shimmering ball of white noise and malice, a floating miasma filled with all the bile most people never let emerge from their subconscious. Surprisingly, it’s really fun to listen to!

For this special occasion, Primitive Calculators are revisiting the legendary Little Bands idea that they created in the late 70s, asking a bunch of friends and fellow artists to form one-off little bands to play a series of 15-minute sets before Primitive Calculators take the stage.

Expect the unexpected!
