I've having a show on Mon. Sept. 4 @ Avant-Garde Bar selling zines and chapbooks for my small press, having local industrial and electronica DJs, showing a local B-grade slasher movie, and having a "bad goth poetry" contest.
In addition, I would like to have artists on a panel to be able to draw sketches, small portraits, or "convention badges"-like illustrations for any attendee of the event. What does the artist get out of it? Well, they get a free drink for participating, and they can only draw one free picture per attendee, so if that person wants more art, they have to pay for it. :) Secondly, the artists are allowed to bring any finished work, prints, and the like to sell at the show.
