Both the Talkhouse and Brooklyn’s AdHoc are dedicated to giving artists a voice. So, it seemed pretty natural for us to team up for a special edition of AdHoc’s artist-centric zine. The theme of choice? Touring and live music.
Talkhouse has brought a roster of its writers on for this (dare we say collectible?) zine, including Hutch Harris of the Thermals, Tommy Siegel of Jukebox the Ghost (plus Narc Twain and Drunken Sufis), Honus Honus of Man Man and Greta Morgan of Springtime Carnivore. AdHoc, for its part, has harassed the talents of Body/Head’s Bill Nace and Ben Greenberg of Uniform (also a Talkhouse contributor), to name a few.
The Talkhouse and AdHoc will be rolling out pieces online over the next month, but if you’d like to order a copy of the zine, you can do so here; you can download the PDF here. You can also find physical copies at the following locations in New York City:
