Ugly Things Magazine 30 Year Anniversary Events at the Casbah and Jaynes #uglythings

Ugly Things Magazine 30th

Jaynes is very proud to be supporting our good friend and fellow Brit expat Mike Stax in celebrating 30 years of publishing Ugly Things Magazine.  Ugly Things is the longest continually running garage, punk and psychedelic fanzine in rock’n’roll history.   Mike Stax emigrated here to the U.S. in 1981 after contacting San Diego Crawdaddy lead singer Ron Silva as a fan.   This old fashioned bit of letter writing led to a plane ride to San Diego and the bass chair with the band.   Soon came an action packed 1983 when Mike was a founding member of the legendary Tell Tale Hearts and launched his own Ugly Things Magazine.  This hand-typed zine became the foremost chronicle of  wild things from past dimensions.

This coming weekend, Ugly Things is celebrating 30 years of publishing.  And when I say publishing I mean a hard copy, non digital bi-annual book!  Its one of those magazine you don’t throw away.  For 3 days from Friday 5/24 through Sunday 5/26 there will be bands playing at the Casbah in the magazine’s honor including Johnny Ecchols of Love, The Nashville Ramblers, Glenn Campbell of the Misunderstood and a whole gang of other freaks and misfits.

The full Casbah lineup and ticket info is available here.    A weekend pass is less than a round of beers at Coachella.  Support San Diego live music and one of its greatest voices.
