A magazine about female drummers. Need I say more? This magazine is really amazing and unique. Full of awesome female bands to explore and discover. This issue's topic is Girl Bands. It includes fun features like the "What Girl Band Are You?" quiz. Yet it has a serious side, too, with an article by Katy Otto that questions the appropriateness of the moniker "girl band" as applied to female musicians. This magazine provides entertaining and thought-provoking material for anyone interested in music.

An oldie but a goodie from 2009 back in print! Chronic pain can have a multitude of causes and manifestations -- injury or illness, some visible, some invisible -- but people who live with it have many common experiences which are explored in When Language Runs Dry. This issue includes personal stories, artwork, Sick: A Visual Account of an Invisible Illness by Annie Murphy, a handout for organizing communication and support within your community of friends and family, and suggested reading.
A zine for those living with chronic pain and their Allies, When Language Runs Dry compiles stories from people of various identities, pains, and ways of coping in often non-traditional ways. Essays, poetry and art encapsulate the physical, sexual, mental, and spiritual struggles of pain and injury, and how pain interacts with public and private life. The main themes in issue #4 cover the intersection of mental illness and physical pain, and opening up to radical self care.
