River Des Press Expo 

Ten, fifteen years ago, we'll wager no one apart from a handful of exceptionally psychic soothsayers could have predicted the explosion of small printing-press culture. Regardless, and quite happily, there are now numerous artists creating zines, comics and art on small presses throughout St. Louis. And today from 6:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m., the River Des Press Expo celebrates small presses and the vibrant scene they sustain here in St. Louis and in the surrounding regions. Things get underway with 30-plus artists, writers, and comic-, zine- and printmakers showing their work, talking shop and mingling inside the St. Louis Skatium (120 East Catalan Street; 314-631-3922). At 9:30 p.m. tables get moved outside to make room inside for a passel of live bands (among them Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship, Mother Meat, Blondie Brunetti) and, natch, skating. The print expo continues unabated outdoors. Admission to the press portion of the evening is free; to skate while the bands play costs $6.99, not including skate rental.
