Events & Press

I love to do events- readings, performances, fairs, expos, etc. Here are some I've done in the past and maybe some that I'm scheduled to do in the future. For booking information please write jacob@fujichia.com.

Also included in this list is notable press, interviews, appearances in other media, writing for other publications, release dates, etc., because those are all kind of like "an event". There are also like, "things that happened", that kind of event. For ease of use, press clippings are adorned in lavender and links to miscellaneous writing are in light cyan. Interviews are technically both "miscellanous writing" and "press" but in this setting I went "press".

I'm starting to fold in music events (shows) and activities pre-2010, even though I wasn't including those things on here in the past. I guess my thoughts on this are that if you came here based on my writing or publishing projects, you might get yucked out by the music (which like everything else is a matter of taste). But now I think that playing basement shows and stuff is sort of like "where I went to college"- that's where I learned certain methods of interaction, certain strategies, and that's my primary touchpoint for cultural contact. There are a few gaps in the record here- music shows between 2009 and the present, zine release dates, events with flyers that were too large to scan so they didn't end up in my "scans of flyers" folder, and all activities in pockets of time when I wasn't really keeping good notes.

To see just flyers with no other info, but the flyers are in random order, click here.

Again, some of these events listed might be in the future- it's your responsibility to know which dates are in the past and which are in the future!

Obviously there was a ton of weird shit before 2003, but that's where we'll cut this for now. And there's probably more stuff from the included time period that I'm missing, maybe because I'm temporarily forgetting it. I was keeping a blog for a good chunk of this time period, roughly 1999 to 2009, which is why I have the notes for all this. But there were times when I fell off the horse and wasn't writing. But things were still happening! But I don't remember what those things were. Anyway if you remember an event that I participated in or a guest appearance I made, perhaps unwittingly, please write jacob@fujichia.com. I'll try to keep this list updated as far into the future as possible, though to be honest not every upcoming or past event I've been involved with will be on here, for a variety of reasons.
