Ottawa Explosion Weekend 2012 Wrap-up!

Hey! We haven't really posted much on here after Ottawa Explosion Weekend happened. It was a wild and awesome time and we want to thank all the bands, everyone who helped us out and all of you for coming out! It was an absolute blast and we can't wait to do it again next year! There were a lot of bands that played so you weren't able to catch all of them or maybe you don't remember some of them. Luckily Chris Cook of The Mnemonics/Finderskeepers was diligent enough to take a video of each band he saw during the weekend which gives a pretty good overview of a lot of the stuff that happened. If you have any photos or videos please send us a link! Thanks! Check out Chris' video playlist HERE.

    'Way Bad: The Book' is a 72 page 5.5" x 8.5" black and white laser print collection of Ben's comic-style drawings influenced by punk rock, skateboarding, juvenile delinquency, graffiti, tattoo art, and so on. This zine will only release a limited 200 copies of its first edition and [insert any other information about book release or even mention release party w/bands]

    About Ben Jensen

    Ben Jensen is an Ottawa born and raised artist who takes his cues from punk rock and skateboarding. In 2007 Ben released the first issue of his self published, self printed quarterly zine titled 'Standard Issue'. Using completely stolen photocopies and office supplies and circulating over 2000 copies per issue worldwide, Ben quickly received praise-worthy reviews in Maximumrocknroll and Thrasher magazine. In an attempt to shift the focus from music to art, Ben started a Tumblr and underwent the daunting challenge of posting daily updates, each containing a new drawing.
