The first issue of Fred Thomas' Balcony, a highly enjoyable take on the now-rare music-focused variety zine. Balcony is a joy. The brilliant opening essay (on the naming of zines and bands and season three of Jersey Shore) brought me back to a golden era of zines that I often long for, and the rest of the zine stays on this bright path with a short history of post-punk, a list, and an interview with sound artist Andrea Pensado.

Highlight: an interview with Chandra Oppenheim, who—at ten years old—headed up the New York no-wave band Chandra. 

Cover colors vary. 32 pages, half-letter size.
