White Fungus to Release its 9th Issue at Mighty Mighty

Irreverent Wellington-based arts mag White Fungus is about to celebrate the release of its 9th issue with a party at the capital city's fabulous bar and night-haven Mighty Mighty on Friday, May 9.

Titled The Lost Weekend - in reference to the magazine's weekly Sunday radio show on the VBC - the night will include performances by local artists Shanghai Sheba and avant-experimental group The Elephant Men. There will also be DJ sets by Eric Ultimate (Coco Solid), Tao Wells (Gambia Castle), Ace Hurt (Cortina) and White Fungus.

The new issue of White Fungus continues in the magazine's tradition of mixing in local and international interdisciplinary content, putting contemporary art and writing on experimental music alongside local history, political satire and literature.
Issue 9 features work by artists Richard Killeen, Tao Wells, Greg Malcolm and Yao Jui-Chung, music articles on The Dead C, John Wiese, Justice Yeldham, and an interview with New York-based New Zealand sound artist Annea Lockwood.

The issue also includes poetry by Iain Britton (Auckland), Gu Xie (China) and Anne Cammon (New York), and a new colour comic by veteran Wellington comics artist Tim Bollinger titled Noah, commissioned especially for the new issue.

The Lost Week End kicks off at Mighty Mighty next Friday, May 9 at 8pm. Entry is $5 or $10 (including a copy of the mag).
