September 1st at 7pm join the Wingnut Anarchist Collective for a down right weird literary event!!
All ages and sober (discretion advised)
Bring money to buy some bizarro books from these bodacious people!!!!

In September 2014, the writers, artists and co-conspirators of BIZARRO are coming to freak you out! 
BIZARRO FICTION is a fast-growing underground genre of high weirdness, with over 200 titles in print from ERASERHEAD PRESS, RAW DOG SCREAMING, BIZARRO PULP PRESS and more.  It’s been described as “the literary equivalent of the Cult section of your video store, back when there were video stores.”  This fall, Bizarros across America are joining together for a progressive book-crawl of the East Coast!
FEATURING readings, performance and odd behavior from some combination of:


Tuesday June 3rd at 7pm!

The event is an evening of folk punk jams from “remember when we trashed the golf course?”

the show includes playing telephone pictionary with the audience, zines, and comics.

You can listen to the music at

All ages, sober show. Please bring $$$ to donate to the touring musician, and to buy merch!!!

We are also looking for 1-2 local acts to open the show!

We are recommending this short zine written by our friends, which is a brief analysis of the fast food industry from an intersectional lense.  We at the Wingnut have been involved locally with the Fight for $15 Fast Food Workers movement. We support workers because a)some of us are fast food workers or other low paid workers, b) not supporting workers would get us no closer to social change, and c) we have to build movements to have movements, and create relationships with people to build the community that is necessary to transform the world.

But at the end of the day, we are anti-capitalists. Not all of us are vegan, but the environmental impacts, health impacts, animal suffering, exploitation of low income people of color and more mean that the Fast Food Industry is a major negative impact on our communities. Improving the working conditions and raising wages is something that all industries need and all workers deserve.  However, the Fast Food Industry is specifically so rotten, so toxic, that changes to labor will never be enough.

We will continue to support the Fight for $15 and other worker’s movements, but we will also always keep the bigger picture in mind. Low wages and bad working conditions are just a symptom of the rotten exploitative attitude of the fast food industry. We need to attack the roots.

Check out the zine, read more about it, and help us create a vision for a world without Fast Food, and where our communities are healthy and sustainable!




We have just uploaded 3 vegan anarchist zines written in spanish! Please read, share, print, and distribute as you like!

We did not write these zines, but our friends did! All credit to WARZONE DISTRO/The Feral Space

Today’s Richmond Times Dispatch had an article clearly meant to discourage Richmond City Council members from voting against the stadium idea at Tuesday’s meeting.

We need everyone out to City Council on Tuesday May 27th at 6pm – come early for protests out front and to make sure you get a seat. Last time the stadium issue was up for a vote the Council chambers were standing room only and filled to capacity with many folks being forced to wait outside or in an overflow room.

Wear red, bring signs, be hydrated and have water, bring phones charged, and bring snacks, wear comfortable clothes and shoes. It might be a long meeting.

Starting in July the Wingnut will be having regular meetings twice a month.


The purpose of these meetings will be to improve communication and coordination around various community, activist, and creative projects going on under the Wingnut banner.

The meetings will take place on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 6pm at the Wingnut (2005 Barton Avenue)

The 6pm meetings will be open to anyone who does or would like to organize with the Wingnut. If you want to get involved, start volunteering, collaborate around an issue, plan an event using our space, tell us about your project or organization, host a workshop  etc. please come at 6pm. We ask that you come on time to make sure we do not have to drag out meetings or repeat items. Feel free to email us ahead of time with your agenda item at

At 7pm the meeting will then become for residents only, where we will discuss normal household business.

The upcoming meeting dates are:

Monday, July 7th

Monday, July 21st

Monday, August 4th

Monday, August 18th

Just got word that the Pioneers Press book tour will be hitting Chop Suey on Cary st. Tonight from 5-7

We get a lot of folks asking how they can help out. We really appreciate the support and we are trying to envision where we can take that support and use it most effectively.
If you have visionary ideas of projects you would like to see happen under the Wingnut Anarchist Collective banner please do not hestitate to get in touch.
We would love to host more workshops, yoga/exercise/self defense courses, book and poetry readings, and acousti music events.
We definitely need help promoting events, having copies made of fliers and literature, cleaning communal areas of the house, yardwork, fundraising, gardening, etc.
But we would love to have more dynamic projects that could expand and grow the anarchist vision and projects of the Wingnut Anarchist Collective.
