Tommy Guerrero, Show Your Work and Douglas Coupland vs. Chuck Palahniuk

Tommy Guerrero, Show Your Work and Douglas Coupland vs. Chuck Palahniuk

This past week Huck revved up to support skate legend turned musician Tommy Guerrero’s first European tour, we launched a new series where we’re giving Huck’s readers a chance to share their process and we premiered our new short film about Thierry Noir, and we revisited two of our favourite authors, Douglas Coupland and Chuck Palahniuk, as they faced off in at the New York Public Library event.

Tommy Guerrero Hits the Road

We are media partnering skate legend-turned-guitar wizard Tommy
Tommy Guerrero is about to hit the road on his first ever European tour and Huck are onboard as media partners. We’ve got a review of his new album No Mans Land and all of his gig dates right here. Catch him in Leeds Monday, April 14 at Brudenell Social Club and at London’s Underworld on Tuesday, April 15.

Show Your Work

We also launched Show Your Work, a new series inspired by artist-author Austin Kleon’s SXSW opening keynote. Kleon said great ideas often emerge from a network of creative individuals who share their work. By sharing the process behind what you create, you bring people closer to your work and add fuel to the creative scene, Kleon says. (More details are in our post about his talk and new book Show Your Work!)

We’re putting his theory to the test. Boat Magazine (in the feature photo above) helped us kick off the series by sharing how they put together the nomadic travel and culture magazine that uproots itself for each issue to focus on a different city. Boat’s Lima issue launches April 14. We want you to take part in Show Your Work. Post a process pic, or two, with the hashtag #huckprocess.

Chuck Palahniuk x Douglas Coupland

Douglas Coupland x Chuch Palahniuk Huck

Two leviathans of alternative literature went face to face at New York’s Public Library on Friday, April 11. To celebrate this clash of two titans of print, Huck scoured the archives and unearthed interviews with both Chuck Palahniuk and Douglas Coupland.

Thierry Noir – Painting Walls

At an event at 71a London, Huck premiered our new short film on Thierry Noir, the first artist to paint on the Berlin Wall who is being honoured with the first retrospective of his three decade-career. The exhibition at the Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch, London, runs until May 5, 2014.
