There Goes the Neighborhood: Found Live

2007_10_Foundfixing.jpgHopefully, you already love Found, the magazine and series of books created completely out of found items submitted by readers.

The Found magazines and books play on a voyeur mindset of peeking at all the things that are none of your business. Items within the series, include a list about a budget with $600 set aside for crack, and other more poignant items, such as a letter found attached to a floating balloon addressed to “Shadow, in heaven." They make excellent coffee table books and the composition is mostly random, like sifting through a thrift store.

Tonight Davy Rothbart will be at Heart of Gold, sharing new "found" notes, and his brother Pete will sing songs based on items in the latest magazine, Found #5: The Crime Issue.

Tonight, October 9, 8 p.m., Heart of Gold, 3036 N Lincoln Ave., 4th Floor
