Straight To Hell #67 Launch Party @ Exile, Berlin
Yesterday BUTT magazine announced that Billy Miller, the editor and publisher of the legendary Straight To Hell magazine will throw a little launch party in Berlin tonight (July 31st) for the release of the zine’s 67th (!) issue. The evening with will take place from 7 to 10pm at Exile, an art space in Kreuzberg, 4 Alexandrinenstraße, for which Miller has also curated two exhibitions called Head Shop and Lost Horizon which are still shown there and I guess can also be visited during the event.
Straight To Hell was started in 1973 by columnist and journalist Boyd McDonald and since then has maintained its original concept, which basically consists of an entertaining combination of sex reports written by the zine’s readers and a bunch of raunchy pictures and illustrations. For more background information about the history of STH I recommend Bernard Welt‘s essay on the magazine which is published a while ago on Dennis Cooper’s blog.
